I know very little about politics, so I'll drop out of this now.

What I do know is that I'd rather live in England than anywhere else, and I currently have a nice lifestyle, so I don't think it's too bad to be honest!

I agree this is the best country in the world be far I guess all I mean is it doesnt mean it cant be better or that we dont have to be on our guard so it gets worse  :smiley:

Funnily enough I just had the wannabe lib dem local mp just knock on my door giving it the 'i'm just a local lad born and bred' routine.
Be funny if it wasnt so tragic!

Plus if all these large firms are re-locating to England there isn't going to be a lot left to fund the new country, so finances will have to be worse than they are now.

No companies were ever relocating and none ever even threatened it. The mainstream media did cheerfully report that they were, but the said companies' own press releases resolutely denied it. All that was ever mooted was the transfer of the brass plaque registrations because they're obliged to be in the same country as their lender of last resort. As it happened, this would have been a positive for Scotland, keeping, as they stated, all jobs and functions located as they were already, whilst removing all liability from Scotland.

This, along with the Pledge, which has already proven to be bogus, and the Oil Is Running Out Imminently narrative, which has also already proven to be bogus, and mostly the lie sold to pensioners about losing their pensions, which even the government denied, is what lost the election, and as a result the mainstream media is quickly becoming a Sun-in-Liverpool-level pariah even amongst No-voters.

S'alright though, we'll be an independent country soon enough. The generation that killed it are getting very old.

In our country we have the best legal system and whilst the police will never be popular theyre FAR better than in any other country in the world so I dont see why we need input from any other countries.

How are you demonstrating this objectively?

The UK has the power to tell them EU how many beans make five because lets face it Germnay and the UK are the most powerful countires but theres seems to be some sort of weird agenda with the whole thing.

It's not 1945. The UK is not a superpower. We are not the second most powerful state in the EU. France is.

You only have to look at the whole sorry situation in the Ukraine which the EU didn't cause but in a way it did.  Trying to expand your undemocratic empire onto Russia's doorstep is wreckless at best.  But dont worry 'the eu' is taking sides with the Ukraine so im sure well have no problems taking on russia when it all kicks off!  Those russians are pretty good at fighting and I cant see how we could best them in any way?!

The EU has nothing to do with the situation in Ukraine.

The irony of the situation is the EU and the west is accusing Russia or trying to revert back to soviet times when in fact it is all of the european countires who are being run by a european parliament which doesnt respect democracy and is full of nationalists, nazis and national front members...

'Full of'? Hardly, they're far, far outsripped by the liberal leftists and centrists. Hell, in the last EU election the leftists increased their representation by THIRTEEN TIMES what the Euroskeptics did. In the simultaneous English and Welsh council elections UKIP's vote share dropped by six points.

In our country UKIP got the majority but thankfully theyre not a racist party regardless of what you think of them

Except, of course, that they are. Or at least are coincidentally populated by racists.


EDIT: I find it horribly depressing, that I remember a time when even though the oil was running out fast, at least the country was vibrant, energised and upbeat, we weren't going to war, we were getting new powers no matter what happened, and the NHS was bulletproof? Now the opposite of all that is true.

Last Wednesday was a great time to be alive.

To avoid confusion, please assume all words above are jovial and follow the prefix "In my opinion".
