So I succumbed and came into this part of the forum.

What's the deal with digestive biscuits and Eton and toffs? I missed that part of the culture.

Ooh, you don't want to come in here at the moment. :) The place isn't looking its best.

The biscuit game. Google is your friend. Sort of.

This glorious day, 24th June 2016, will go down in history as the moment the British people finally regained their country from the grip of a dysfunctional organisation in Brussels.

Mister Farage, leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, has worked tirelessly in the face of adversity to bring about Britain’s independence from the Union. He has shown remarkable restraint and courage over the years and his unstinting devotion to Britain and the British people has finally been rewarded with the highest accolade possible: Independence Day.

Congratulations, Mister Farage, on this remarkable, no, stunning, victory that has shaken the Union to its core. History will remember you as the only politician who had the effrontery to look Brussels in the eye and say, NO. I thank not only you but all those millions of hard working low paid British people who voted on that momentous night of 23rd June to finally, after years of wrangling, make Britain a fully independent nation once again.

:goodpost:

I agree.

History will remember him as the guy who stood up and was counted for all we true Brits believe in and made this probably the most defining moment in British history since WW 2 happen.

What agenda has been exposed? How?

Anyone see what that bitch Nicola is trying to do?

Scotland had a referendum and decided to stay. Sorry... but this nicola Sturgeon seems to be trying to keep one EU principle very much alive. If they dont get what they want in the first vote.. they keep voting till they get it right. EU Mantra. She is poison

She will cripple scotland, and if she does get what she wants? i hope she'll be remembered as the woman that ruined/kill scotland.

Sad, but I know what he means. The economy will likely be in a bit of a mess for a while, but it's our culture I fear for. And not so much because Remain won, but because of the way it won.

Interesting to note that Downing Streets predicted Armageddon barely materialised and even then normal service was returned within a few hours.

Also interesting to note that the hostility and threats eminating from Brussels and Germany turned out to be nothing but hot air and today they were already bending over backwards ready to do business, as was Obama also.

I really despaired at the number of Remainers who took it all so seriously and were shaking in their tiny boots not daring do anything other than follow orders which must be obeyed at all times.

Had they been bright enough to recognise it all for the bluff it truly was, I reckon the 2% Leave victory margin would have been closer to 10%.

I doubt if Putin cares a toss.The EU will never rival Russia for power as claimed.
It is far too disjointed, fragmented and indecisive and therefore a threat to no one except itself.
The only thing Putin respects is NATO,probably the only reason peace has been maintained since WW2.

Having listened to some interviews from the London area, I certainly got the impression that most Remainers haven't got a clue what Brexit is all about. They got their orders to vote remain based on a small amount of incorrect prejudicial information and that's about all they knew. :cool:

One of the goals of the EU is to have an EU army - it's part of federalism.

The UK and France have the nukes. Whatever the pros and cons of that fact, can any remainer say with hand on heart that having Junker's finger on the button would make anyone sleep easier?

And if not Junker, then what? Rapid reaction entailing bureaucrats' decisions? Summit meetings attended after a day's notice by 27 countries' leaders?

Just one of the EU's ludicrous ambitions.

"In fact, EU member states do not want to cede sovereignty on defence policy at all. Decisions on defence and foreign policy require unanimity in the Council of Ministers. That means every single EU country has a veto – and that is why David Cameron has rightly referred to the suggestion of an EU army as “fanciful”.

If you’re voting for Brexit because you think British troops will be called up to an EU army, you’ve been horribly misled | Voices | The Independent

Sterling fell 7.44% over the day against the dollar. FTSE was down 3.15%, which represents a drop in dollar terms of over 10%. I would expect stock markets to recover somewhat as they often overreact to uncertainty. Not so sure about sterling.
