I'm pretty sure D&D harks back to a time before the EU.

Pssht, we don't need your foreign electricity. We'll soon be reopening British coal mines.

And relearning how to create electricity and maintain the national grid without foreigners.

I've never experienced Brexit related racism first hand before so this is depressing.

I DO NOT SPEAK FOR THE COUNTRY

Although as someone who identifies as a cat, it does seem entirely reasonable behaviour.

The Very, Very Important Question that the rest of Europe is mulling over is how will this effect Eurovision?

Probably not directly, but will Britain now feel it can moan about it more? Less? Will it lose the automatic spot in the finals?

If any country enters a song involving loss or leaving or missing you (all good themes for songs), the press will go crazy.

Funny you should say that, as Britain seems to take it the most seriously of all the countries. It makes a big fuss about *not* taking it seriously, which merely underlines that it actually does. But that could be a cultural interpretation difference.

Former European colony declares independence | Al Jazeera

Quote:
So to London, capital of what until Friday was the European colony of Great Britain. At 11pm local time, this former coal and pop-music producer declared independence and shook off the manacles of frictionless free trade with its close neighbours.

Many observers were concerned lest triumphalist Brexiteers should attempt to perform the ritual bonging of the totemic local clock Big Ben, and thereby infuriate the vanquished subsidy-bloated Europhiles.
Quote:
Linked to control has been sovereignty - a local shamanic tradition which rarely makes sense to outsiders unless they have fully experienced the altered state of consciousness that full exposure to common sense can bring.
