The Brits just kissed their good fortune goodbye. Apparently. I agree with this world view. Without the edginess of Europe, Britain is just a place of bland food and rowdy football fans with awful complexion and bad breath. Seriously, I mean seriously, how pompous can they be to think that they would be better off without the rest of the world? So like they deceived a large part of the world into handing over their countries to them, their politicians deceived them. A bunch of middle-aged fogies stitched together a load of lies, gave it the veneer of truth and then tossed it over to the public which swallowed it whole and now cannot throw it back up.
Aah, how the gods must be laughing. Especially the ones dealing with evolution. The Britisher who has always prided himself on being a cut above the natives has actually proved that he has not really evolved. He has in fact become dumber.
So now the world has one self contained unit that says boot instead of trunk and porridge instead of oats, while the rest of us make merry spelling color without a ‘u’ and saying sidewalk without the fear of being corrected that the word is actually pavement!! Freedom from the Queen and her English.
What is that shuffling sound I hear? Is that the Bard turning in his grave?
