....on their first day of emancipation from the EU.

I just drank a toast of Pusser’s Rum (a gift from a Brit friend) in their honor. 🇬🇧

Don't really care if they leave or not, but they acted like some little bitches on the way out. Nigel basically pulled down his pants and mooned everyone while flipping double birds.

Farage's statement captures it in a nutshell.

This is a truly glorious moment. Britain was always apart from the continent, always maintaining its separate status. The `exceptionalism' power of Europe. It was not right that it be increasingly under the thumb of an agenda driven by Germany and especially some kind of border-less and identity-less perspective. Europe's great culture heritage is all about its variations and distinctions. The EU has become too much of a political party rather than an element of commerce

Going to laugh when the EU tries to hold UK over a barrel on a new trade deal and so the US decides to give them a similar deal as say Japan and use that to further tighten the screws against the EUs various taxing policies for international companies.

 

By trying to "get back" at the UK they are going to drive them into the welcoming arms of the US.

Cut off your nose to spite your face...

Pretty Aggy to complain and gnash your teeth as you loose. Then try to delay it for 3 years, where you basically have to vote for the referendum again to take out the part of Parliament that wasn't listening to the people.

One thing changes. The UK no longer has representation in the EU parliament. They will be even more under the thumb until they finally leave completely.

good point, so their problems actually increase today because their opinion doesn't matter but they have to listen to the EU.  They signed onto this?

Not sure they had much choice. They'd be negotiating from both sides of the table if they maintained representation during this time.

The UK will also continue to pay EU dues until the end of the year, IIRC.

The Brit Parliament is to blame for the failed exit negotiations, and that’s why in the recent election the Remainers & that POS Corbyn got absolutely crushed & pegged like a virgin altar boy  in the Vatican

I really hope so. I'm basically cheering for the complete breakup of the UK right now so Little Englanders can get their wish to be an insignificant blip on the map.

According to my Brit friends, Scotland has been a big drain on the UK social welfare resources.

But Mel Gibson should be happy to see that vote pass.

They've been that way for a century. It's hard for perception to meet reality when you once owned a third of the planet.

The British recaptured their national sovereignty from faceless bureaucrats from Brussels. Just last week, it was reported that the EU wanted to force phone and tablet makers to use a universal charging interface without any thought as to the impact it would have on the current array of products being made. Boris Johnson delivering Brexit has been the greatest victory for those of us who are national conservatives. Repudiation of those that consider themselves "citizens of the world". Sorry - borders matter, regaining national sovereignty matters, maintaining a country's own currency matters and finally restricting immigration to meet the needs of the state and desires of the existing population for the number and qualifications of immigrants matters.

They could still own it if they weren't so self defeating and small minded.

Not really, they are university educated with long professional careers In education, and businesses that employ people. Nice folks with good families. One is an RAF veteran of the Falklands war.

90% of the UK's oil reserves are in Scottish waters.  That would more than cover social welfare.  Still, I'm sure negotiating ownership of the reserves will be a complete shitshow if Scotland votes to leave.  England doesn't really have a valid claim though.  They even agreed a long time ago that reserves in Scottish waters are subject to Scots law while also agreeing to maritime boundaries.

I'd say it's more comparable the WV ditching the Confederacy in 1863. You can't understand a word either one of them is saying so when they tell you they're leaving you just say ok.
