MODS: IF THIS IS IN THE WRONG SECTION, I APOLOGISE AND PLEASE MOVE ACCORDINGLY.

Just for fun guys so let's please not start fighting.

Just to make it clear I voted for Brexit to restore our sovereignty.


Now that the UK has left the EU and is a free agent without a clue, it’s time for us to take a hard look at making it one of the United States. This is a deal with real synergy that would replace their current lose-lose situation with a sure-fire win-win outcome. Here are ten reasons why this deal needs to go down.

I know the above 'source' is a bit of a joke but it got me thinking... How would my fellow UK citizens feel and would our USA cousins embrace us?

It doesn't need to become a state, it's already the US's biggest aircraft carrier.

As an American, I'd embrace Mexico as a 51st state before I wished for UK to join.

I never felt as poor as I did when I was in London. As a poor American, the last thing I want is the influence of more rich people.

Besides, that Country has like 4 or 5 names already... with Brexit being the latest of which was added, it screams "Identity Crisis".

It wouldn't bother me as an American, but I think a more pertinent question would be is how those in the UK would feel about it.

It's a completely silly unworkable idea on so many levels that it isn't worth arguing.

I would much rather see my British cousins reclaim their national sovereignty and re-establish the culture and tradition that made Britain so great for so long.

Besides, the U.S. already has a 51st state.

It's called "Canada"

The US stands a better chance of becoming a territory of the UK before the UK becomes a state of the US.

Ah, the old jokes are always the best. I remember that one from "Not the Nine O'Clock News".

Britain, Great Britian, England... always in an identity crisis throughout times.

I experienced an identity crisis while in London... I make a decent living and have a nice house and comforts in the U.S. When I stayed 1 night in London, I had to sleep on the street because I did not have it in me to pay $200 to rest my eyes for 4 hours... got to experience being homeless again.

No thanks... in fact you can take NYC and LA if you want them!




London is the capital of England. England is a country. Britain is an area that consists of England and the country of Wales. Great Britain is the name of the island that is home to the countries of England, Wales, and Scotland. The United Kingdom (UK) is a country that is a union of the countries on the island of Great Britain, along with the country of Northern Ireland (which shares the island of Ireland with the Republic of Ireland.) [The Republic of Ireland is] a separate country that is not part of the UK. London is also the capital of the UK.


So, does this mean Ireland comes with you? Just because Brexit is happening does not mean the rest of the world wants a Brentrance.
