It is often said that commercials reflect real life - well, if that is so, there is hope!

To all that think that separation is the answer, to all that brag about "my country first" or "my people first", look and learn.

Cute ad, but I don't think Commercials reflect real life in the least, they exploit it to sell their crap.

Meh, we're not Unionist enough to support the Bilderbergs utopia.

If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't the people from Holland called Holes?

Is it the use of the double 'L' that turns it into Dutch?

I may see the point of the OP, but still off base.

Brexit is based on fear. Fear for other people, fear for immigrants, fear for Polish workers, black people, fear for losing "the control of our nation", fear, fear, fear.

We, on the continent, have actually suffered from fascism. It may well be that the Brits still have that lesson to learn, I don't know. But I sure hope not, and this commercial is touching and gives me hope.

Brexit if anything is caused by the Islamic invasion. Though I'm sure you could find other reasons.

Another thread conflating racism with immigration policy.

They are NOT one in the same.

Why would it? It's not a British ad so it doesn't exactly promote the idea that Brits are more accepting? I see your reasoning, but it seems a little off.

The ignorance of this OP is epic.


If trusting people is ignorant I plead guilty.

Brexit, if anything, is caused by fear. There is no "islamic invasion". There is, however, fear to be killed, fear to be out of a job, fear to be forced to believe in something you don't believe in. On both sides.

I may have misinterpreted your reasoning, though it seems a tad flawed. And there is an Islamic invasion. The so called refugees. Send them back to fight or else they don't deserve a country and they sure as hell don't deserve our welfare.

It's a cute Christmas ad. Very touching, really. But it does not have worldwide philosophical implications. If you want to get technical, the kid is completely xenophobic and wants nothing to do with the old man with a funny accent. So if you are usig that ad in an attempt to say something about Brexit: Epic fail.

Nope, "Dutch" is actually a bastardization of the word "Teuts", like "Deutsch" is. The "Teutonen" originate from Danmark, Jutland, and the mudflats in between. They were a proud, strong people, fond of beer (in my country we still say "he is 'teut'" if one has had one too many). Their offspring lives in the Netherlands and Germany, hence the similarities in the names (Deutsch -> Germans, Dutch -> Netherlanders)

Holland is merely a province of The Netherlands, but in the Golden Age it was the most important part, and Amsterdam the major city. Hence, our entire country is often called Holland.
