    Well they can join up with Spain and see how their fortunes fair with them and their granny batoning police. Otherwise if they want to stay British, they can accept the democratic referendum, shut up whinging and make the best of it.

    You really think it's only the British who think that way? Americans at least seem to have the exact same attitude, I always assumed it was more or less universal.
