We all know the arrogance of the English
reply to post by flammadraco
you're arguing the case for independance mate... showing that the English government is that bad that they want everyone to pay for prescription charges and to withhold certain cancer medications.... This is without mentioning the welfare and service cuts and the coming privatisation of the NHS... and the wars and .... you get the idea. I agree with you, the system is not democratic or fair, that's why the Scots want out... The English need to find a way of doing the same, a soft revolution, a changing of the guard at least...

it seems to make you quite angry... but you're wrong, the pound is as much yours as it is ours and since currency is made up of just pieces of paper the name of the currency in this case is arbitrary... and I actually have nothing against the English, I wish you all the best and hope that you escape the tories and the house of lords also, this is just our way of doing it... and the united kingdom came about when King James the 7th of Scotland became also King James the 2nd of England through succession... the marriage of the crowns and we are keeping the queen as head of state unfortunately, so we'll still be the united kingdom.... its Britain we are leaving and since Britain is a member of the E.U. with us as part of what the current definition of Britain is (land size and member amount wise) then we could just as easily say New Britain would have to reapply to the E.U. also but we wouldn't say that because it's ridiculous and the E.U. will have us both... as its growing not shrinking and now even includes Romania... yet people think they'll refuse Scotland and I always find it funny people using the europe wont accept you argument when the Tories are planning a referendum next year with the hopes of Britain leaving the E.U. ....
