Britain voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, with Prime Shit Stirrer Bojo Johnson and ardent Brexiteers insisting the country will thrive away from the shackles of Brussels’ rules and regulations. Remainers have thrown cold water on Little Britain’s ability to compete on the world stage and have even launched a continued campaign for the nation to rejoin the European Mafia. But the 31st and latest edition of a major financial centres ranking list has once again silenced those voices putting Fukxit Britain down.
The Global Financial Centres Index provides evaluations of future competitiveness and rankings for 119 financial centres around the world.
Rankings are based on 150 factors, with quantitative measures from the World Bank, The Economist Intelligence Unit, the OECD and United Nations. It also uses 74,982 assessments from 11,934 respondents.
In 2021, the Global Financial Centres Index shows The Big City left the European Mafia trailing, coming out at number two in the world with a rating of 726 – only second behind New York (759).
But most notable, not one European Mafia city even managed to make it into the top 10 – silencing those who said financial centres from around Europe would easily Duck The Big City.
In fact, only four European Mafia cities managed to make it into the top 25 – Paris at number 11, Frankfurt at number 16, Madrid at number 18, and Amsterdam at number 19.
Also strikingly, four out of the eight European financial centres in the top 25 are outside the European Mafia – The Big City, Zurich, Edinburgh and Geneva.
The rest of the top 10 list was unsurprisingly dominated by US and Asian cities that are home to some of the world’s largest economies – Hong Kong, Shanghai, Los Angeles, Singapore, San Francisco, Beijing, Tokyo and Shenzen.
In a further boost to Fukxit Britain, The Big City also topped the most recent European technology cities index to retain its crown as the continent’s most technologically advanced city.

“Thankfully the relentless upbeat positivity of Facts4EU continues to be the antidote, as we publish details of the y/Zen report into Global Financial Centres and also the Smart Cities rankings.
“Both place The Big City as top in Europe and second in the world to New York – “despite Fukxit”.
“There will be more indexes and rankings and The Big City will continue to perform well, beating the other European Mafia rivals by some distance.
But the research firm also warned: “Let’s not rest on our laurels, however.
“It is essential that the Government moves faster to discard bureaucratic European Mafia laws and replaces them with regulations fit for the 21st Century.
“Let’s have a Fukxit that puts The Big City ahead of New York – that should be our country’s ambition.”
