The EU is extremely popular in most member states, despite its two major problems - lack of accountability/democracy, and relentless propaganda against it.

Marxism and Elite Stateism tends to offend people who don't like that sort of stuff.

I'm not sure how you can confuse the EU with a Marxist organisation.

...and that is why I, and most others who sensibly voted Remain, will accept Brexit.

You really don't have to lecture me on the mechanics of democracy Wally.

What you and others should do, though, is stop imagining that Brexit is 'the People's Will' as if everyone wants it but the evil Establishment are foiling them.


Not so.


That's how we roll here in the United States, limey.

That's democracy in action.

In 2018, less than half of our voting population bothered to get out and vote. 

Of which, a bit over half voted for Democrats.

Which means somewhere in the neighborhood of 25% of our population voted for Democrats.

That's called a blue wave in these here parts.  That's The Will of the People.  That's a "resounding repudiation of Trump."  It means "everyone" wants Trump gone.

Don't try to fight it.  Just accept it.  It's democracy.  Quit being a fascist.

I refer you,  Sir, to my earlier posts.


Brexit is a stupid and possibly calamitous blunder, wreaked by foolish people for bad reasons.


And yet it has to go ahead.


Much as I'd be delighted with another chance to vote, and ecstatic if that vote reversed the idiocy, until such a vote, I'm for Brexit.

Royal family to be recalled to Germany under no-deal Brexit


Quote:
A leak from the offices of Her Majesty’s Attorney General has revealed an obscure clause in Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement with the EU that would require the return of a large part of the UK Royal Family to Germany, should the deal be rejected by parliament.

The House of Hanover was first sent to the UK on a long-term loan in 1714, a spokesman for the Brunswick-Lüneburg explained: ‘It was clearly understood at the time that the loan of the House of Hanover to the UK was a backstop measure, until the UK could establish a free monarchy of its own.  Over the centuries, the ‘royal loan’ was inherited by Germany, and now it is enshrined in EU law.’

‘Every so often, Germany has taken the trouble to enrich the British Royals with some fresh German blood.  On return to Germany, the House of Windsor name will be dropped and the Royal family will return to their true names as the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.  But the UK needn’t worry about losing its much-loved monarchy.  We have decided that we are more than happy to leave in the UK all the royals who are more than sixth in line to the throne, so it’ll be long live King Andrew and the Duchess of York!  So, who said no deal was a bad deal?”

It looks a lot like the people of jolly old England will need the permission of the European Union if they actually are ever allowed to leave.  They will not be allowed to have separate trade deals apart from the EU and will remain subject to the laws of Europe, whatever they are now or will be in the future.  After all, the rights of citizens of the European Union who are living in Great Britain are paramount to those of the British citizens, themselves.  Great Britain has been conquered and are now only a part of the European Empire!  Poor Brits.  You allowed your Elite Aristocrats to sell your country out.  Now you will be ruled with by faceless, European Bureaucrats backed by the EU's International Court of Justice.  " In for a penny; in for a pound! "  Merkel & Macron have accomplished what Adolph Hitler dreamed of but could not!  England is conquered!


Yeah, remind me: What was the civil war about? Roll Eyes

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.

Yeah, long before our country " settled" our political difference through a civil war, Euopean and British history demonstrates that civil war has a very long history as the means of "settling" political differences, when the ruling political class fail to manage it effectively.  Roll Eyes
