I'm absolutely sure that that is the real driving force for their posting here.

I can see their point, of course. Every year I look at my power company charges, for example, and compare other providers. I then go with the one which will save me the most money. If I could get someone else to pay for me, perhaps I'd do it! On the other hand, I don't think I'd really sink that low.

I'm afraid they'll have to change their strategy if they want to make any real difference, though: the proportion of 'leave' voters in this country who are members of this forum must be minute.

Perhaps they're continuing their work on lots of other discussion fora too!

I have added to my ignore list. That's no less than eight now, although one of those is not in the Foreign Legion; just boring!

Nothing personal, I should add. It's just that posts of no interest to me just clog up the pages.
Not a lot of people know this but, DCI Gene Hunt once hit a man for speaking French!

Itís an excellent idea and should be ensconced into English law, along with obligatory training on the long bow.

Patronising.

Leaving a political organisation that sucks the individuality and the creativity out of nations and then steals their Sovereignity is not a bad idea

No-one has to live in the UK if our political choices offend them so much . No law keeps them here. As an EU citizen their are 27 other territories under their cosh that you can reside in..

Absolutely.

What we should all be aware of is that the Frogs and Germans effectively run the EU for their own benefit. Granted, the Dutch and other aspiring nations also benefit at least for now.

I have a strong feeling that the Frogs will eventually realise that they are not only the poodles of the Germans, but that when the time is right they, and all other member countries, will become subject to the complete control of the Germans.

I must stress that I have met many Germans and all are perfectly ordinary and good people. It is their politicians we should be wary of.

Look at our OFF members. Do you see a single German?

Why? Because they're not whingers, unlike certain other Europeans. They are practical and hard workers. In that respect, I admire them.

Have to agree that it's not the ordinary working man/woman in many of the countries, who causes all of the problems.

It's those in the Government.

(aided and abetted by many with vested interests.)

Roll on the election. (if ever).
