The British Are …

I asked my friend Caz if it was okay if I make fun of Brexit, I possibly should have included the British as well, but I think that was a little bit implied.

So let me talk a bit about the British trying to leave the EU. It’s not just been months, it’s been years since it first started being something to think about and we haven’t gotten much past thinking about it.

The British are coming, the British are coming.

Famous lines, from when a country was first leaving the British Empire. The start of the end. Even if some countries left much more peacefully or less completely the British Empire grew super small, indeed it stopped existing.

That was right around when the EU came along and made England part of a different kind of Empire. One that grew and grew and seemed like it would never stop.

Then the shocking day came, Britain declared it was considering leaving the EU. The country that had been left and left and left was now saying it would leave?

Maybe we’ll see if they can do it.

Here is my advice. Just do it. If they have to pull out their water pistols (because the don’t have real guns) and say we are leaving or else. Do it.

If they need to go to Germany and have peaceful protests (I’d say France as it’s closer, but they’ve had enough trouble with protesters). Do it.

If they still think that politics can do it, good for them, but now that they’ve said that they’ll leave I want them to. Do it.

The British are leaving, the British are leaving.

I recently got Grammarly for Firefox and it does not think this is funny at all. I know my sense of humor is odd but didn’t you at least smile.

One thought on “The British Are …”

  1. Hahaha! As a Brit, my views on this on oddly very, very divided. The EU is more like a boys club. The UK is still in Europe. But the EU itself seems to have imposed a LOT of rules on us, many that are very limiting, and we apparently are paying billions to be in this ‘EU club’. I’m not sure why. I get that trade is helped by being in the EU, but surely we could have stayed in the EU and just negotiated to be able to make our own laws, for instance, around criminals who’ve come to this country, or to make our own laws about what bloody lightbulbs we’re allowed to use. We didn’t have to leave, yet that was the only option on the table. HOWEVER, what the UK was told when we had the referendum was a load of rubbish. We all voted based on faulty information. Ie. If we leave, we don’t spend billions to be in the EU anymore, we can make our own laws, we can ‘kick out’ the criminals who shouldn’t still be here, we can spend billions more on the NHS, etc. It seems it’s all a load of nonsense, and now they don’t know whether they’re in or out. I’ve never known anything so ridiculous. What’s worse is that there are ignorant asses in the UK that serve to divide us further by calling each other ‘leavers’ or ‘remainers’, and it’s horrible. This will go down as one of the most ridiculous things in history. It’s an embarrassing time to be British. Get me out!
