I suspect it's got more to do with the UK government's current crack down on big business tax avoidance

We've done really well in the EU and I hope for England's sake we stay, you couldn't get a more European country than the UK for a thousand years we've been ruled by the French Normans/Germans and Dutch and before that the Vikings (Norsemen) held large parts of the country and of course the Romans before them.

In 1917 at the outbreak of the first WW the Royal family had to drop their German family name and change it to Windsor, before that it was Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, because their family was German, the German Kaiser was the Kings cousin.

We are a mix of all European nations historically (plus of course the more recent immigration from the commonwealth countries).

We have always been at the heart of Europe and need to stay that way, isolating ourselves from the largest market in the world and thinking we can go it alone like it was 1650 again is a folly and let's face it last time we did well and dominated, we had the guns and cannons and everyone else had spears...the world has changed.

If the Tory's aren't careful, the next elected prime minister might be Corbin. Which would be an absolutely horrific choice!

Should be interesting to see how this 'private' prosecution against Boris plays out.

Brexit: Johnson 'very confident' MPs will back deal https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-50090636
I can't believe he did it! I think he's a bit of a slimeball, because he used Brexit simply to further his career, but this deal seems like a better deal than what May had.

Yeah provided he can get it through the parliamentary vote.
If they still block the deal it'll be a truly sad day for British Democracy.

If that happens, they need to ask for a 30 day extension and have another referendum.

I couldn't believe it when I saw this. Merkel actually admits multicultarlism is a failure?

What you will never see on fake news MSM today here in America. This is astounding to see such an admission from somebody like Merkel who was at the forefront of this fucking cult for years. Too bad the horrendous damage has already been done.

A quick search showed this being reported on by CNN, BBC, the Washington Post, Huffington Post, and a few others. Not on the crazy left sites like MSNBC, but it is being published elsewhere.
