That's too bad, cuz' I rather doubt publlic opinion here in either country could successfully fake ...

LOL The British tabloids have used similar tactics regarding the 48 hour week. The British worker was told..... "These are rules imposed by the French and the Germans and we must show them we do not take orders from them...... Rule Britannia!".  
And the workers said....... "right in that case we shall work 70 hours per week........ and for no extra pay...that will show them"....
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Enoch Powell was an intellectual giant...... by comparison to any British politician past or present....

Yes granted Maggie was a strong leader...Her cabinet allegedly called her "Daggers" and a member was asked by a reporter whether it was because of the steely piercing looks she gave.....the minister replied...."No nothing as bad as that......Daggers as in Dagenham ......two stops from....Barking".

Britain is a big net contributor to the EU and always has been, 17 of the of the 27 member states are net takers.

So a defection by us isn't in their interests, especially not the political classes and their Brussels gravy Train.
