    Why the fuck is anyone surprised that the British government doesn't give a toss about international law? Does nobody remember such timeless classics as the Chagos Islands, Iraq, or prisoner voting rights?

    flouting international law just as you're busy throwing your last remaining international influence into the dumpster is a whole different kettle of retarded fish.

    edit: i suppose it's actually flouting international law specifically to enable themselves to have less influence. *mind fucking boggles*

    They dont even need to pass it, that train has left the station. Whoever is going to take them at their word any more? I think it has to be intentional sabotage at this point.

    Does the withdrawal agreement have enforcement clauses?

    I think it's mostly fine as and the imposition of a hard border between Ireland and NI, which will probably have the effect of amplifying support for re-unification.

    With support for Scottish independence regularly above 50% and the whole NI mess, the U.K. is facing an existential crisis that England appears to be ignoring.

    They didn't want the Irish or the Scotts anyway and they are already replaced

    Pelosi has said that the trade negotiations between Murica and UK would be aborted if UK breaches the withdrawal agreement. Probably an idle threat with the congress and presidency being held by Trump.

    Why is our ruling class always so shit lol
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    No, im just ok with self-determinism for smaller regional groups. UK is a retarded idea. Let the Irish have the Irish back, let the Scotts do their thing. A smaller, less influential England is a good thing for humanity, all we've ever done is fuck shit up

    Wouldn´t entirely rule out reinstating the Danelaw either..
    can we have the bits Sweden and Germany stole back instead ? by all means carve up Danelaw as compensation.

    also, there's that whole "Nobel peace price" stunt the Norwegians pulled...
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hey now, England does do good occasionally, just having a little trouble readjusting from global dominance. This is understandable, all empires end, most collapse much worse than this. In a millenia people will look back and say "well. they did invent the pencil, fair play". The contribution of the small pox vaccine alone arguably makes England the greatest net contributor to humanity in history, but I think the pencil (and let's not forget the rubber band) clinches it.

    Bold assumption that people are still going to be around in millenia.

    in 2016 a tweak to mosquito genetic code that is being field tested and devastating mosquito populations "after mating successfully with a wild female, any offspring produced will not survive to adulthood and the lethal gene is passed on from the female to any male they mate with and the cycle continues." i believe the end goal is, once establishing the method, to apply this to shitposters too.
    also McVities Hobnobs. case closed.

    a biscuit, that's not really that common outside the UK, is pretty much the equivalent of a "i got nothing fam".

    In 2026 an illness caused by the flying scorpions that took the niche formerly held by mosquitoes killed 85m people in West Africa.

    C.
    Further, dark chocolate ones.

    The fact Liare disagrees only demonstrates the fundamental truth of this.
