7. It'll be interesting top see what the UK government does to stop this

A Tobin Tax goes against everything Britain's ruling Conservative party believes in, and clearly against UK interests given how dominant financial services are in the UK economy.

Add into this the increasingly very anti-EU nature of the right wing in Britain and it becomes clear that the British government will do all it can to be exempted from this at the very least.
