You're just going to have to change your name to "Mediocre Britain."
Nah! When the other countries (Scotland & N. Ireland) rejoin the EU we'll have to call ourselves 'Poundland'.

I'm still waiting for what the Isle of Man decides.

I be the EU wouldn't let them in until they changed their name to the more inclusive "Isle of Person."

According to the continentals here, the UK is a substandard drag on the continent.
Is it "make things up on the fly day", or are you just practising?

Just ask Scot Dutchy. That "Anglo Saxon mindset" and its awful adversarial processes, and such....

UK faces prospect of no Brexit if May's deal rejected, says Hunt
Foreign secretary says vote against withdrawal agreement could lead to UK staying in EU
Of course Hunt is a cunt.

Brexit has not happened but...

Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Honda deliver triple dose of bad news for UK car industry
Thousands of job cuts and a post-Brexit production shutdown announced

Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Honda delivered a triple dose of bad news for the UK car industry on Thursday.

JLR will cut 4,500 jobs, predominantly in the UK, while Ford is to cut thousands of jobs across Europe. Honda announced it will pause production at its Swindon plant in April in anticipation of border disruption after Brexit on 29 March.

JLR revealed the job cuts as part of a £2.5bn cost-cutting drive aimed at maintaining profitability as the company battles plummeting sales in China and confusion around diesel emissions rules.

Life Could Be A Dream
- by Dutchy and the Continentals

(Hey nonny ding dong, alang, alang, alang
Boom ba-doh, ba-doo, ba-doodle-ay)

Oh, life could be a dream
If I could take you up in paradise in Europe
If you would tell me it's Socialism that you love
Life could be a dream, sweetheart

Oh, life could be a dream
If only all my precious plans would come true
If you would let me spend my whole life judgin' you
Life could be a dream, sweetheart

Now every time I look at you
Something is on my mind
If you do what I tell you to
Baby, we'd be so fine
Oh, life could be a dream
If I could take you up in paradise in Europe
If you would tell me that it's Socialism that you love
Life could be a dream, sweetheart'

Sh-boom sh-boom, ya-da-da da-da-da da-da-da da
Sh-boom sh-boom, ya-da-da da-da-da da-da-da da
Sh-boom sh-boom,…

The "Man" doesn't mean that type of man, so... no.
