    No mate, we've been 'fighting' agin our own remoaners, who were trying to ride a coach and horses through our democratic process.
    If it sounds like we're gloating, that's because we are...
    we've beaten the bastards!

    The long toll of the brave
    Is not lost in darkness
    Over the fruitful earth
    And athwart the seas
    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
    Unquenchable forever.

      It allows for my Hypothesis that an independent great Britain splits rapidly into a common Market formed on the Old Heptarchy, with New Mercia and Greater Wessex going to war over the lack of salt arriving from Mercia in it's hide shipments.

If you think that we would put up with more of that bullsh1t from the EUSSR over a 'Sweaty' one too, you will have another thing coming.

        A hard Scottish border will please both us and the EUSSR. If you vote to leave the UK for the heady uplands of county status in the land of the EUSSR, then go for it.

        The SNP are no more than a radical 'more left' version of the Labour party so they should be at home in a larger, dying, lefty superstate. Enjoy your pittance subsidy, the end of democracy oh! and your 10 Euro bottles of McEwans Head Space.

        I can see it now...Latter-day Border Reivers running amok, kilts and Sporrans a-flapping, ginger hair a-waving, on the rampage in the local Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, and Wetherspoons south of the border, looking for Special brew for £1.75 a can, frozen chips for £2.00 a bag and deep-fried Mars bars for £1.50 a pop; and hairy Geordies in black & white striped football shirts and huge beer-bellies, going the other way to 'find out' what the fuss is about. The Sasanachs wouldn't be able to 'see' what all the fuss was due to the copious tears of laughter getting in the way.



        Dibs, you definitely read too much Conn Iggulden lately..

              It's not Europe being the enemy, it's the EUSSR and the lefty officials that infest it.

                Bloody right we do. The EU cabal and their race towards their universal dictatorship with the 'help' from the already twice failing Germans ( National-socialist German Workers' Party in disguise) who are doing it through guile this time, needs someone to keep them in check...again!

                  I was thinking the first direct threat would come from our traditional enemies France and Spain.
                  Macaroon has already made all sorts of threats over fishing and I can see a confrontation between French fisherman and RN fishery protection vessels happening pretty much as soon as the transition period ends. If the French backed their fishermen up with their navy then things could escalate.
                  Likewise the Spanish are again threatening Gibraltar and we are going to have to reinforce the garrison there otherwise they may try and seize the Rock.

                    'enemies'? Are you saying that all countries would need to bow before the British and disagreeing with the British is the same as being an 'enemy'?

                    That is unlikely to occur unless the UK fishermen try to fish in French waters. The likely end result is that the French fishermen will blockade (most likely by using legal means like supporting dockworker or stevedores strikes) the French ports or rather the UK fish exports into the EU in the French ports.

                    Also there exists whole slew of old fishing rights (some well over 100 years old) agreements between the UK and multiple EU member states which actually do have weight when traditional rights part of the UNCLOS is being observed. So it is still quite uncertain what will happen. Furthermore no one forced the UK to sell their fishing quotas (or to put them to open markets). Legally those quotas are now mostly owned by (non-UK) EU fishermen because of the UK itself (the EU had no role in that). I guess the UK could try to buy them back as simply renegading them would be utterly moronic choice since it would only mark the UK as unreliable in international politics and trade.
                    Likewise the Spanish are again threatening Gibraltar and we are going to have to reinforce the garrison there otherwise they may try and seize the Rock.
                    Again, it is very unlikely that the Spanish would try to seize Gibraltar. If they would aim to such they would likely just use the same rules with it as the ones that are being agreed with the UK which would end the special status Gibraltar has had and therefore causing damage to it economically (but again fully legally). Which might prompt business in Gibraltar to move couple of miles north...

                      The scenario regarding the French and Spanish is just neighbours rowing with us over the garden fence. The Germans, on the other hand, are akin to a rogue giant developer company hell-bent on compulsory purchasing the neighbourhood for as little as possible.

                      • I've been having a cogitate about current events and feel that we who voted to take our country back have behaved impeckably toward these sulky remoaner creatures, left standing in the playground in forlorn tired, poor, huddled masses, frightened that there's nobody to hold their hands.
                        Well, all that's got to change, it's time to have a proper gloat at our magnificent victory. For starters I think this will do splendidly, a gentle reminder that the last time we gave Europe the rods things didn't turn out too badly.

                        Diary entry, 17th June 1940... France gave up.

                        When this news came through at the Officers' Mess at Acrise Place, Captain Max Wilson, the MO, was amazed as his fellow Officers burst into spontaneous cheering. He smiled nervously and glanced from face to face, but oddly couldn't fully understand their sentiment. 'We had just lost our last ally - I suppose they felt the French had become a liability over the last few weeks.' It was the instinctive reaction of an island nation whose homeland had not been conquered for over 800 years. They would now withdraw into their island fortress and pull up the drawbridge.

                        The long toll of the brave
                        Is not lost in darkness

                            • This sums up my take on Brexit quite well.
                              and matches a lot of what I’ve seen posted right here.

                              The fixation with looking backwards was one of the reasons my parents emigrated from the UK to Canada. Whenever I visit my family still there ,the divide among generational attitudes is astounding and stark.

                              Be interesting to see how it all shakes out.
