Pffft. That entire article is simply a hatchet job on the English and nothing else.

Exactly, although that is picked up on in some of the comments replying to that article.

Probably because they thought Brexit meant exit from Britain!

Agreed . . . I’m reminded of when Paul Keating was Australia’s PM. He wanted nothing to do with Britain, and Irish supporters appeared from all over the place. When Keating was deposed by John Howard, the supporters disappeared just as quickly.

With angst like this between neighbours, how does the EU expect to survive with even more diverse cultures and political differences?

Oh. I think they may rely on democracy. An ancient concept apparently antithetic to English exceptionalism.

The EU is democratic? I thought this was alien to them.

But then, it seems that certain losers in the UK have no concept of democracy either, it must be a 21st century malady.
