Alba Gu Brth
Part of the campaign against the referendum for Scottish Independence was the promise that England would remain in the EU. That promise has been broken, so what do you Saxons have to say for yourselves now?
Look for another referendum coming up very soon.

Re: Still In Love With Brexit?
In Sep 2016 I was on a South of Spain cruise out of Southhampton. Almost the entire passenger list was British; so a couple thousand Brits and less than a couple hundred Yanks. I liked the steak and kidney pie, regret passing up the bubble and squeak, really loved the British breakfasts (especially the British bacon; I didn't try the pudding though), didn't dare try the Vegemite. The last-night party was a celebration of British popular music (featuring Beatles and Stones, of course) for which the concourse (an "atrium" that ran the length of the ship -- yes, the inboard cabins had that as their view) was packed; they closed with Monty Python's "Lighter Side of Life" for which everyone held his/her lit cigarette lighter high.
The Brits kept needling us about Trump and we kept needling them about Brexit. Neither side had any explanation for their own national insanity.

Re: The Final Results
That aside, one thing you can say about old Boris is that he sure knew how to have a good time!
At least we know that Boris didn't spend $70,000 on hairstyling like Trump did (eg, Trump Took $70,000 in Tax Deductions for Hair Care. Experts Say That’s Illegal. - The New York Times. ). Unless the completely unkempt look cost more to pull off than I thought.
