Its worth pointing out that Brexit had most votes in Wales ,,,,,, England and Wales have always been together, all the way back to Agincourt and before ,so its not true to say they are closer to Europe . Basically massive rivalry between the 2 countries but at the end of the day its always been us 2.

FartingFoulFarts this noise:- says:

The UK is deeply divided between:

-superstate socialists who want to dissolve our national identity and make us become a vague, classified, EU drone collective, and who inhabit all our political parties, media and education centers and the people indoctrinated by them…


– Normal British people who want our country back and CAN'T BELIEVE we don't have taxation without representation, which leads to everything else.

There are those who wonder what we are voting for in elections. This BREXIT thing has revealed our politician's true alliances that were previously hidden behind various party smoke screens, before.
