Why is Greenland so rich these days?

Many of us are so busy we don't have time to notice what the politicians are doing to us.

Greenlanders did notice. They were cold, they were poor and their staying alive depended on being able to catch and export fish. This focused their thoughts.

In 1985 they voted to leave the EU, to leave EU red tape, to leave the EU Destruction of Common Fisheries policy.

The result: The average income of the Greenlanders today is higher than those of us living in Britain, Germany and France.

Alex Singleton has the story. Judith Hitchen of the Runnymede Messenger sent it to us.
