    ^So, once the Soviet Block was dissolved and all the armies had withdrawn (an unprecedented case in history), why the NATO hasn't been dissolved in a same way?

    BTW, What were the agreements and pledges re NATO's non-extension after the Berlin Wall collapse?

    Straying a little isn't it...

    Meanwhile, can someone post a link to the Maybot's open letter to the nation. I can't do it from my mobile. I notice she is still carrying on with the savings to fund the NHS and also this silly notion of taking back control of borders.

    Honouring the result of the referendum and what's best for the nation? That's pushing it a bit in both cases.

    There are reports that May and Corbyn will participate in a televised Brexit debate.

    Of course there might be some Crochet documentary on another channel that would invariably provide better entertainment.

    Out of all Britain's previous Tory PMs, May probably has to be the most sclerotic, narrow-minded, deluded, and autistic of cvunts. Her utter malice and absence of empathy for anything remotely approximating to a human instinct or emotion singles her out as the worst, desiccated, shrivelled-up, dehydrated hag to ever crawl across the floor of the Commons.

    How the fuck can this fucked up, dried out bitch of a shitbag ever think free trade and frictionless commerce with the EU can prevail when the cvunt has sworn that Britain will never be part of the single market and customs union, and has announced unequivocally that all European citizens will be treated the same as coons, wogs and hottentots from the third world?

    The proportion of immigrants to indigenous folk in MOST westerN, developed countries tends to be around 14%.

    Trouble is, you chaps are too inhibited to express your true feelings in thaT whereas you welcome white, anglo-saxon, christian incomers you are uncomfortable with niggers, coons and muslims.

    If only Scotland had not shit itself 4 years ago we could have been sitting with our feet up safely part of the EU watching the English rip themselves apart. All the while celebrating a huge oil find up in Shetland at Clair Ridge..It's an absolute fucking travesty we are getting caught up in all this Brexit shit when the entire nation voted to remain.

    You would be bankrupt within the year. You can have independence when you have your own currency.

    What a load of shit. Why would we have gone bankrupt when our major industries include banking and financial services, aerospace, and naval systems, renewable energy, textiles, biotechnology, tourism, whiskey and barley, shipbuilding, and on top of all that you have our oil and gas industry. Why do you think Westminster is so desperate to keep us. They told us 4 years ago that the North Sea oil was running out. Now out the blue, they have suddenly found a massive gas stream worth billions.

    Do you really think that? Shetland has always indicated that if Scotland gained independence then they too will get independence from Scotland. Shetland does not want to part of Scotland.

    The Shetlands were the only part of Britain, along with the Western Isles of Scotland, that voted against EEC membership in a 1975 referendum.

    Indeed (although I think that was started by the Bangkok elite...).

    In some parts of Europe, over to the left edge, democracy still means a bit (probably not a lot, but a bit) - the people have the right to their own choices from time to time; the exact shape and size of one's banana doesn't need to be dictated every time...

    Brexit: Trump says May's Brexit plan could hurt UK-US trade deal
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-46352463

    The reality is the US is not interested in the UK outside EU. What good they are for if they can't spy and fook up the EU long term integration plan

    this is going to give wings to Boris, the 2 face backstabbing traitor

    Hours later, Mr Trump told reporters outside the White House: "We have to take a look seriously whether or not the UK is allowed to trade.

    "Because right now if you look at the deal, they may not be able to trade with us. And that wouldn't be a good thing. I don't think they meant that."

    Tory backbencher Mark Francois was among a host of MPs to urge PM to think again, claiming the agreement was "as dead as a dodo" and "would not get through" Parliament.

    The connection was a little tenuous wasn't it, and you failed to leap in the direction I was going. The UK not wanting to pay a little money to get big returns.

    Bananas went out of fashion years ago. However, grading produce and selling at different prices hasn't, at least not on the continent.

    In your blind, mulish obduracy you have omitted to mention that the Shetlanders were against Brexit in the 2016 vote.

    Do keep up Prag, you may well have cloistered yourself within the 12th century dystopia of rural Isaan among gormless peasants scarcely different from their livestock, but we on the zeitgeist of socio-political awareness have moved on.

    Brexit is now firmly synonymous with the fuckwitted led by their panjandrums of imbecility.
