Od over odd odium...

Why do they hate Britain so much? England even more. Why do the liberal lefty luvvies hate their country and everything to do with it? Orwell was so right: "England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality." And John King over at New Statesman (no, really) writes "Metropolitan intellectual snobbery is part of an older, anti-English racism that runs back through the centuries..." [NS link]. And now the pathetic passport panic; the image above is just a selection of the passports that exist; all are HERE. Of the 189, most are blue (41.74% in, doesn't that number look familiar to another number: 17.41 million). That said, adding up and higher/lower numbers has seemed difficult for Remainers.  Also, the UK has a 'power rank' of 3rd with 159 countries where we can visit visa-free;  there are only 3 countries (2 rankings) who have more visa-free entry the highest being Germany with 161.

Well, apart from the rubbish about it costing 500 million quid to change (it will cost NOTHING, nada, zero, zilch, extra - only what would have been spent anyway - probably in 2020) we will still have the same rank, unless the EU decides to be fucking pricks. Now, hold on, I know what you're thinking: "Many in the EU are fucking pricks!", (especially, it seems, the European Parliament's representative in the Brexit negotiations Guy Verhoffystuffy who seems not to have read THIS when he said THIS... maybe they would have allowed us Annex II point D) and they may well do this but the European countries will not; so quite what all the ridiculous shitters are moaning about is I don't know, one can only presume they are fuckwits, professors and all.
