Actually, the average Tory is in their 50s and not yet dead, so perhaps it would be more accurate and a better joke to call them 160,000 Clarksons

Ultimately, I cannot bring myself to care which of this shower gets selected by 160,000 Michael Winners to drive us off a cliff.

Just to specifically respond to this, as of 1854 BST, the white paper has managed to rise to the first slot on DuckDuckGo and still isn’t on the first page of Google UK. Google UK does, however, feature four YouTube videos, a news box, a twitter box, and seven links to news sites

It is *wild* to me that a YouTube video of someone reading the paper appears on the front page but the paper does not.

To be clear, it’s not on the first page for me, which I think is stretching the definition of top results

Is the company basically just saying "we expect other people to run the exchanges so that we can keep our money laundering violations at arms length", or is it arguing that a point where you can exchange cash for cryptocurrency is not in fact a cryptocurrency exchange?

Also, Calibra *does* explicitly write that it "may integrate with cryptocurrency exchanges, but will not act as an exchange", so I'm honestly not sure what they're promising when they say there will be booths in towns.

Which is weird because they haven't committed to that in writing anywhere (it came from a question at a press event) but they *have* committed that "calibra may integrate with cryptocurrency exchanges, but will not act as an exchange."
