Well, to be fair, y'all did let the English into the EU.

That was in the early 70's. Neither them nor us have been happy about it since the 1980's.

Reminded of the Lone Ranger joke.

Lone Ranger and Tonto surrounded by Indians who are looking pretty angry.

Lone Ranger:

"Tonto, we're surrounded by Indians: what we gonna do?"

Tonto:

"What do you mean, "we", White Man?"

Ah, the "Come on, it will the '70s; people were experimenting" excuse.  Love it.

Well there are a proportion of us who are going to have to be ejected forcefully by the bouncers if they try and make us leave.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Don't you live in Wales? There's this guy called Cameron volunteering for the job of bouncer.

It is one of the reasons I dread the Scots escaping, it will tie the rest of us under the control of the blue hordes of Westminster, The party of spivs and bouncers isn't what we really need.
