One source, you could equally find others that say we will owe nothing. (For a start, that source doesn't take into account all the money we have tied up in the ECB and the property that we helped finance).

Well it's still being negotiated, but all the countries remaining in the EU are looking like they want you guys to pay. So you COULD find a source saying you won't pay, but that sounds more like wishful thinking to me.


bfy.tw...

As you can see, there are plenty of sources there, including such lefty paragons as Channel 4 news.

Some of the best, most lethal weapons systems in the world.

Everyone and their brother can make guns.

The most recognisable, luxury cars.

But BMW and Mercedes are German companies.

Some of the best, bleeding edge IT and scientific stuff.

You got me there. Trump has decided that science is the devil.

Tweed, lots of tweed.

Who cares?

The sort of shoes that will last you a life time.

I'll have to take your word on that. I've never bought a British shoe.

Beef that tastes like it was raised in heaven and won't give you cancer because it is full of hormones and stuff.

Uh huh...

Beer to die for.

You can keep your warm beer.

Wine that even the French buy now.
Whisky, Gin and a whole bunch of other stuff that you can use to dull the pain of not being British.

Ireland and Scotland wants to leave you guys now.

I closed your link after I realized you were being patronizing, so I don't see anything you are talking about. I'll default that you are just seeing things you want to hear. Britain can sing and scream all day that they won't pay anything, but that doesn't mean it will be true. The EU says they owe and negotiations may reduce the amount, but y'all will be paying something. Bet me.

What problems with Trump? As I just posted in another thread, all I see is a man creating jobs and working on healthcare reform.

I think you are the deluded one. Sorry but don't underestimate our drive, we have some of the best in the world.

Turn up somewhere in a Merc or Beemer and people are just meh
Turn up in a Roller and everyone knows you have arrived.


If you never tried a pair of proper shoes or a tweed jacket, then you just don't know what you are missing.


And all beer isn't warm



Part of Scotland wants to, not even a majority and, I would imagine, even fewer will want to leave once they get their fishing grounds back and the Royal Navy can once again favour British shipyards and steel works over foreign ones.



Ireland left years ago, the 6 counties of Ulster are still deciding which way to jump.

Convenient, that. Isnt it? it does actually give the same google results as if you could be bothered to do it yourself, just that it does so with a smile.

if you are happy with spouting your opinion and everyone understanding that it is based on your own, self imposed, ignorance, then fine. bit sad though, don't you think?

Britain survived and in fact did really well before we joined the E.U. In fact it was The EEC we joined, which was nothing like what The E.U had become.

Newsflash: It isn't 1950 anymore. The world economy works CONSIDERABLY differently than it did back then.

You have the luxury of voting for your president.

We don't. The President Of The E.U. is imposed on us.

Y'all vote for the European Parliament, which decides the President. It isn't the same, but its similar.

Extra tidbit. I think Trump will persuade Scotland to stay in the UK.

Except this isn't the mud pit and I won't walk down a path of arrogance with you. For example. I clipped the next part of your text because this thread is a news thread not a bio on Krazysh0t.

Hey, you made a statement that was plain wrong, not my fault if you don't like being called on it.

Seems to me that just like all the other pro EU types, you are the one who's knowledge is lacking. maybe if you understood better, you wouldn't be so anti independence?

No it's not similar. It's nothing like it at all.

And you think Britain can't make it work ( like it has done so over 100's of years ) What a defeatist attitude.

Maybe in Britain. Here in the States not so much.

Looking British. Something that looks silly outside of Britain. Sorry I can accept missing that.

I know. ALL of my beer is cold AND it tastes like heaven thanks to the microbrewery market.

We'll see.

Northern Ireland is a separate entity. That's what all that terrorism was about a few moons ago.

Oh I'm sure y'all will survive. I just don't think it is a good idea and one you will be regretting later down the road once your world influence wanes drastically.

And? It's still part of your country and a potential powder keg waiting to go off thanks to this decision. Do you want all that terrorism to spring back up again?

1, maybe it's a class thing.
2, definitely a class thing. If you are happy with your falling down trousers and training shoes, that's fine. But if you ever want to look good, you know what you are going to have to do

3, exactly, we will see, not "They want to leave" as you erroneously stated.

Why would our influence decline ? We are already part of a much bigger club than The E.U. It's called The Commonwealth.It comprises 52 countries.
