Wales voted 52.5% pro Brexit. Wonder how they are feeling today.

Russia did a great job with this project.  They're working on Canada too, and the world via the UN.

Every reasonable Canadian should flood the Facebook pages, twitter accounts and so on calling out these liars.

People wanting political sovereignty isn't a bad thing.  If Scots and Irish want to determine their own destiny then so be it, good for them.

It's a bit different with Quebec though, the Quebecois founded the country and are an inherent part of Canada historically and geographically.  But I still support them having a lot of sovereignty over their own affairs even within Canada.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

I find it interesting that the Brits are the only EU country that feels it needs to leave in order to have an identity. Insecurity or arrogance?

You’re talking out of both sides of your mouth....   you support political sovereignty, just not for Quebec.  For Scotland it is fine though.

You missed the part where I said I supported political sovereignty for Quebec.  That can be accomplished with them still being within Canada.

Fun Brexit thread.

Brexiteers find out they have to sell their French home into which they were going to retire.  And they are PISSED... at the EU naturally...

I read part of the thread...   I think the story was made up by this guy.  Seems too convenient.

Covid on top of Brexit. The Brits have shot themselves in the foot big time.
