    I think the very best we can hope for is to be not that much worse off for no benefit whatever.

    I cannot think of anything in our entire history that matches it for sheer stupidity.

    Saint do you know what that statement actually means? ---> "sun never sets on the British Empire"? Cause I'm pretty sure it still doesn't.

    chuckle. It's not as if the British actually govern these places nowadays! I suppose the phrase should be updated to reflect modern politics and so be that, "The Sun never sets on the Commonwealth of Nations." Cos it never does. And I rate the Commonwealth as a Good Thing.

    The Commonwealth works. It is a system that benefits all parties equally. The EU does not. The original intent of the Common Market - a trading agreement between countries was fine - I would still be in favour of that, but it was never intended as the Central Government to which it evolved. The Commonwealth works as all members still operate independently, making their own laws, without being answerable to the others. Once you get other countries wanting to have a say in how another country is run - that's where the friction starts.

    Tell me about it....... the "dismissal" comes to mind. That still to this day leaves a ringing in the ears and a bad taste in the mouth.

    Schuman Declaration:

    It proposes that Franco-German production of coal and steel as a whole be placed under a common High Authority, within the framework of an organization open to the participation of the other countries of Europe. The pooling of coal and steel production should immediately provide for the setting up of common foundations for economic development as a first step in the federation of Europe, and will change the destinies of those regions which have long been devoted to the manufacture of munitions of war, of which they have been the most constant victims.
    (my bold)

    from https://europa.eu/european-union/abo...declaration_en

    This is the preamble to the Treaty of Paris 1950 which set up the iron and steel agreement between France and Germany (Belgium and Luxembourg too iirc...) which is still recognised as the basis of the Common Market and the EU and as the part I bolded indicates the federation of Europe was openly stated as part of the plan to prevent another European war ever happening. Right from the very start.

    Claims to the contrary are simply wrong. Brexit propaganda.

    He used the Republicans to get into power, now there aren't any left in his administration (I think?), just family and friends.

    This thing of theirs is likely to be very profitable!

    Successful N Korean missile launch I gather. This one could hit Los Angeles, apparently...Trump promised they would never have that capacity...
