I work in the shipping business and I don't understand the Leave supporters claims that we can trade more with the Commonwealth instead of the EU.Most of the Commonwealth countries are at least 30 days transit by sea apart from Canada (and they've just completed a preferential trade deal with the EU...

Lol, the stereotype of the entire U.K. is that of drinkers....perhaps that's why they can't get along... Mixing alcohol and political discussion might be a factor. At least as important as the first Duke of Rothesay, what? :wink: Very clever. I think most won't get it though, unless they say it out...

I'm 50% Scottish on my mother's side, and she may spin in her grave for me to say this, but seriously, let 'em. Buh-bye. That little hobbit can take her country and flounce off.

Obviously England is it's own country in the commonwealth, but I use British and U.K. interchangeably because my understanding is that the full name s: "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". If I'm wrong on that usage, please correct me. The United Kingdom is England ...

what is the worst that could happen. We lose free access to a market of 500 million people.We have to prepare and pay for Customs documents and tariffs on exports as well as pay for Duties on imports.Instead of dealing with Europe which is up to 7 days transit by surface,we instead look to world ma...

I know that Trump has sweetened Scottish appetites with a meaty flavour of golf a la mange Trump hasn't sweetened anything in Scotland.His golf club in Aberdeen was opposed by locals,he was sacked by the Scottish government from his post as 'ambassador' and he was met on arrival here last week by a...

England will have the same relationship with the EU as Switzerland. The Swiss have never joined the EU and they enjoy a higher standard of living than any of its member states. The problem that England will find is that they will still have to accept freedom of movement,the same as Switzerland. Tow...

The young have grown up in a Europe where they are free to travel,study or work in any EU country and as such many feel as much European as they do British.The older generation are less inclined to f...
