It would be good if London just cut the ties with the rest of the EU. Not like it's doing them any good. Such a waste of time, money and effort.

At least that island is surrounded by enough water, so if it burns soon, it should not be that big problem for the rest of the world...


Yah, haha, its easy to leave the EU when you're an Island. Me thinks they just want to leave the trouble on the other side of the channel, only reaping the benifts, not the burden.

That seems a perfectly sensible plan to me. Do you not agree?

Edit to add: The crown has always excelled at that.

Having browser trouble this am, sorry for the repetition.

You live there, have your cake and eat it too. Hide that behind the 'will of the people' in a referendum.

No worries, I guessed a glitch.

I'll always be happy to have my cake and eat it in life, every time.
Can't remember the last time that actually happened though lol
What will be will be, I'll still get up to work every day and British summer will still be crap weather.

We'll keep the economy going, even if the Tories have abdicated their responsibilities.

Meh, Tory/Labour government not much changes in these parts either way.
We make hay when the sun shines and tourists are here, save a bit of cash to get through winter, rinse and repeat lol
It'll be interesting to see how watered down 'Brexit' will be though, probably same same but different in name and legal status.
Ah well...tourist season now so I don't really give a #

Glad I didn't vote for these spineless slag Tories who've shirked their responsibility like the cowards they are.

Basically were I am there isn't no cake , because the jobs that paid money to EAT CAKE have been moved to Poland .
Also the jobs that are here are cheap labour jobs taken by the migrants so the wages ain't rising .
Add on the fact of all cuts lately to our everyday services .

= there is no cake !
All our , great grandads and grandmas and there Mam and dads grafted for this UK and it's getting stripped before our eyes and yes I'm pissed off !

Thats not what that means. You can either have the cake or eat it, not both.


Edit: In that regard, you can either be member or a spectator, not both.

The world catches on to a slacker that only shows up when cake is being served.

Obviously I don't mean you or other members from across the pond.

I've been self employed for years fella, there is plenty of cake out there just gotta chase it.
You are of course correct though that Eastern Europeans especially have driven down job rates, and in the self employed building/construction world there ain't no minimum wage so it's perfectly legal.
We don't need tens of thousands of un/semi skilled labourers in the UK, but the left/Corbyn will tell you otherwise of course.

That's true.
Also, the benefits system in the UK was never intended to be a prop for countries with failed economies.

You cannot simply export your unemployed and expect the receiving country to be pleased about it.

How could London possibly leave the UK, The Royal Family are right there The Parliament Buildings are there, Not going to happen, just more PC wishful thinking.

Scotland may leave the UK, but it's got nothing to do with the EU.

Sturgeon, representing the SNP, is using the referendum results as an excuse to push for another Indyref, that's all.

The SNP want to break away from the UK, and they would still want to do that even if the UK voted to remain in the EU.

Because an Eastern European will labour for fifty quid a day, the youngsters can't get on the bottom rung of the ladder with that competition.

Eastern Europe perhaps? Cheap as # wages there.

but is it possible, just the square mile which is a separate entity to the rest of country already?

I don't see how it could be possible for a small part of a country to remain while the rest leaves , the constitutional issues alone would stop it happening I believe.


Not to mention the fact that the vast majority who work there live outside and would thus be subject to border checks etc twice a day.





Reminds me of the old Ealing Film " Passport To Pimlico "
