This was an article I read in the paper today.  The United Kingdom and will it leave the European Union?

Well the United Kingdom still uses the Pound Sterling (and it would be a bad idea to give that up).

Germany wants the United Kingdom to remain as a balancing influence.  I have no opinion on this either way, people in the United Kingdom would have to tell me.

I remember the opposition to the Chunnel, the tunnel under the English Channel and the fear it could be used an an invasion route.  Easy to imagine a Colonel Blimp character carrying on about it.  Keep Calm and Build the Chunnel could be a sign.  I am imagining Berkeley Ballard, the Major in Fawlty Towers complaining about the Chunnel and the European Union in a show.

Take a look at this link that is a debate about this.   




About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
