What Socialism giveth, it can taketh away

David Cameron, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is now threatening to take away their health care and pensions if Britain votes to leave the EU.

If you want to have fun trolling on British (and/or Canadian) message boards, refer to the country as England. The fight is as predictable as using the term soccer or saying that Canada really isn’t much different than the United States and us Americans

Once the bait is taken, ask for the person to differentiate between England, Britain, Great Britain, British, Britannia, English, British Empire, United Kingdom, and ask the Canadians if they are any of the above…

Brexit is short from “British Exit” – does that mean Northern Island stays in the EU?

    Aren’t the Canadians French? It seem when you are anywhere in Quebec Province, you are not allowed to speak the forbidden “English” language. So what if the Queen’s profile appears on Canadian coins.

      The people of Quebec are happy to speak English to American tourists. They are not happy to speak English to Canadians from other Provinces who were learned French in order to graduate high school and are too arrogant to make an attempt to speak it when visiting Quebec.

      I do remember the 1970s when Quebec took down all the STOP signs at intersections and replaced them with signs saying ARRÊT. The ARRÊT signs are still there, but I had to laugh out loud on my first visit to Paris, after renting a car at the airport, the first thing I was was a big red sign that said STOP! lol The EU had standardized STOP signs across the entire EU including France. lol

      Well, if you are French Canadian, you probably refuse to accept that you are a subject of the queen. The queen used to be on the paper money, but they fixed that. The Bank of England still is involved in the Canadian central bank. Canadians like to believe that Americans are ignorant about Canada, which is true for the most part because we just don’t care – but they know little more about their country than we do.

        My slumbering brain cells remind me that the radio host was Tommy McIntyre. At the time WXYT-AM was a talk station and not yet owned by CBS.

        Tommy had been a news reporter during the 1967 riots, ducking the gunfire to see what was going on. Unlike most urban cities, Detroit never embraced gun control. One item he recalled frequently was that during the riots, the police discovered that one of the black churches had set up a gun range in the basement

    I was just talking to a man from Ireland at a party yesterday and along similar lines. I asked him if Brexit passes, as suggested by my long time favorite youtuber, Mr Farange of UKIP, would Northern Ireland vote to exit the UK the way Scotland had voted on a possible exit last year.

    His take is that they would not allow the vote to occur. His reason, he said Catholics are now the majority in Northern Ireland.
