I realize there is consternation in England over the entire Brexit controversy and millions are uncertain about their future.Many just woke up to the reality their nation will no longer have access to a 500 million people economy. Within a few years European owned plants in England will move back to Germany or France or Italy to take advantage of a tariff free economy. But, folks in England, there is a way out of this problem. How about:
Become the 51st state of America! Think of it as coming home to a place you once called home. We have a 300 million people economy and laws that also allow access to Canada and many nations in Latin America. We also speak an English language that is sort of like the one you speak. OK, we do not have your English “football’ –we call it soccer– but we do have the American version of football.
The flip side, of course, is having to endure our American dysfunctional political system. It will make you yearn for a House of Lords to make sense of what our Congress does or does not do. Being an American is sure better than being part of a Little England that has lost Scotland and northern Ireland!
