    Of course not. It's all about national purity, and the wrong ethnicities living in the wrong countries.
    Ah yes, "the welfare of the lowest classes". For example, busting unions, undermining labor rights, and driving entire economies into the ground via a total lack of sound economic knowledge, unprecedented levels of corruption, and being generally beholden to organized crime and oligarchs alike. Such welfare, much labor.


    Is that supposed to be a threat or something? Go pack your black shirt and go home.

    No...dear...European Countries are like our own Houses.
    Speaking of your own house...I guess you don't let anyone in, do you?;)

    And speaking of Seigniorage Banking...do you think it is fair?

    What I meant is that as a Christian ...I believe that Vox Populi, Vox Dei. Volkes Stimme ist Gottes Stimme.
    So a People decides the fate of their own land. As the South Tyrol, where as in 1918 the German population was a big majority.
    And they have the right to be independent.;)

    So, what is a family that is starving, in a war zone, persecuted because of their religion (or lack of it) supposed to do? All due to 'bad luck' being born where they were.
    Stay put or head off in hope of a better life?
    As a Christian would you welcome to your country?

    Shall we speak of when Britain owned the entire world?;)...that is 70 years ago or so...
    These countries fought to be independent.
    After decolonization the only thing we can do is to organize serious plans to help all the poorest areas. Because there really are the resources to help these countries. $€£ are worth the double, the triple in those countries.
    Let us help them there.

    Also consider the ice age rendered the uk uninhabitable for thousands of years. Every "brits" furthest ancestor was an immigrant.

    My family tree goes back to vikings. Blue eyes goes much further to northern Turkey

    My answer was yes.
    But that is not sufficient, we are supposed to help them in their countries too.

    Its cutting everything even in poor old England too (except their own wages). My brother in law is in need of help for a mental illness. He is in Liverpool, Boris and co have cut the health service budget so much it can only afford one social worker and one psychiatrist for the whole of the Liverpool area mental health unit. The waiting list for him to see the social worker is a year, more than 18 months to see the psychiatrist. This is a guy who tried to commit suicide 3 years ago because of lack of help for the same condition.

    The advice the health service are giving is "talk to a charity"

    It doesn't matter how far,an inch,ten miles,whatever it is it's ours and we are an independent coastal state so they must ask each year how much they're allowed.

    This whole negotiation is about the EU imposing itself on the UK and macron wanting to punish us,let the eat hake,just not ours without our say so.

    Cameron said "leave means leave",fishing quotas are not the point, sovereignty is the point and we cannot let the EU impose itself of us.

    And that is exactly what Remainers said would happen - but you lot said it was Project Fear.

    Remember the UK sold most of its fishing quotas to other EU members - so even if we get what Johnson is arguing for, we have no boats to fish those waters and no market to sell the fish in. Genius!!!
