    Maybe after Scotland and Northern Ireland leave, the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland" will be forced to change their name to "Formerly United Kingdom of England and Wales," and the abbreviation will be FUKEW.

    You seem pretty upset by this whole thing. I'm not sure why.

    The sky isn't falling Rusty...we'll be just fine.

    And why should they worry about us? The whole point of them doing this was to start worrying about themselves. I like it.

    Hell, your party has been the one talking about how we need to be just like the UK with everything we do so I'm surprised you aren't backing this.
    And since iirc they went UP 4-500 the days BEFORE the exit cause all the polsters were saying "naa, ain't gonna happen" that 600 point drop is NOT that big of a drop after the 'raise up' before is taken off..

    Yeah, so smart, they didn't know what they were voting for.

    Now that they realize after the fact, they petitioned Parliament for a do-over.

    Some did, most did not. Many voted for leaving in order to send a message, assuming it wouldn't pass, but it did. And now they get to deal with it. As I said, I think it will be a very good thing for England and I'm still trying to figure out why you are freaking out so much about this.

    What it's proving is that people are growing tired of the forced "diversification" of society. I think that Boris and The Donald are going to make quite the double-act.

    Between Fri and this morning, now is the time to invest in some sections of the market ... if you are able.

    .
    What is there to figure out? Rusty is self-avowed socialist and socialists always favor distant elite rule and centralized government. The idea being that the common fools are not capable of making important decisions for themselves, and the power needs to be in the hands of faceless bureaucrats, who will make sure that everything is redistributed under the guise of "fairness"

    The money changers are absolutely shitting the bed right now fear mongering with predictions of doom and gloom!
