Die Welt have done a study of the German regions that will be badly hit by a no deal brexit. Apparently some will be hit very hard. Which I stated earlier is the reason why a mutually acceptable deal should be done to stop us all being hurt.

 

Indeed. The EEA option was available the entire time

We are an island race and I think you'll find most of us don't class ourselves as European. 

And I think that most of us don't class ourselves as stupid but that doesn't mean that there are very few stupid people.

 

Parochialism, nationalism and tribalism have no place in the twenty first century!

No, we are not a separate race. We are white Caucasians and a good number of us have continental ancestry. In the North you’re 30% or more German, in the south 40% or more French

 

You seriously haven’t got a clue

Actually those things do, and that’s the problem.

 

Things are going to get much much worse

I don't need to find anything: your island sits on the European shelf and, at its closest, currently lies 23 miles from the Continental coast. That makes you Europeans by geographical definition, whether you feel like it or not.

 

But even in that last respect, I don't need to find anything: it has always been very clear, that very many of you don't class yourselves as Europeans, within the political definition of the term now. As evidenced by the majority Brexit vote, amongst so many other expressions.

 

Bar a few Irish with an axe to grind, I don't know anyone who has anything 'against' Brits. But quite a lot of people disappointed at Brits, and looking forward to turning a page and moving on in a bit over a month's time.

It could be argued we all come from Africa but you wouldn't call yourself African.

Obviously technically and in reality we are european, I think the point being made is that lots of people consider 'europeans' to be french, spanish, german etc.

If you did a quick fire question, for random people to name a european country, I'd bet €10 that 'uk' would be low down on the list of answers.

Why do you need to get personal ? All I said was that most of us in the UK don't class ourselves as European. Obviously we have ancestors who came from the European mainland. But we have been an island for thousands of years and island nations tend to develop a different mentality to others.
