    I didn't even feel the bump of the parting, it's going to be very interesting in the next few months as there are other EU countries watching closely to see if it works. Europe is a great continent but the EU is not.

    You nailed it..... assimilate into society is key to successful immigration.
    They need to come in and want to be Brits, French, Italian, Greek etc.
    Don't come in and balkanize a country and demand everyone conform to there culture.
    It's basically "my house my rules" type of deal.

    Actually, the influx is largely N. African muslims.

    @Alpal , your words are wise as is the experience's that you share..appreciate the view, its a highly sensitive subject matter. Many thanks for sharing the thoughts and experiences.....Many people have died needlessly to prove some idiot’s point...... I feel 9/11 was one of those points...Back at the Ranch....good luck to our UK family with Brexit....

    Theodore Roosevelt stated that fact over 100 years ago .. Far as I am concerned it hasn't changed ..

    With much respect guys, we went to the 911 memorial in December, it was very moving, especially the white roses for the victims birthdays, the whole experience was made so better because it was so respectful, we've had had tragedies here as result of extremism, what a shame we can't all just live together, peacefully respecting our differences

    Meanwhile.... Back to brexit, we'll be fine, personally it's great to be Great Britain, and not part of the United States of Europe, love the difference between all of us, the EU would have all being the same
    Never thought I'd see the day

    Agree with you Blakeyz,.....9/11 brought many people all over the world together, in love and respect,.......If only we could do that without the 9/11's occuring,..........

    It's especially touching how it brought Seal Team 6 and Osama Bin Laden together.

    The United States is in the business of exterminating Human Waste.

    Ironically, a one-time home of Indian Motorcycles . . . . . .

    Ahhh, leads to my favorite drink to order when out and about . . . . a Johnny Black Bin Laden . . . . .

    Yes, that's two shots and a splash . . .

    Congrats to all our English cousins across the pond. Hope you have fair winds and seas after all the dust settles.
    As for the Muslim intrusion going on in Europe, I spent many years over in the great sandbox we call the Middle East. I can’t understand how that area went from some of the greatest and smartest nations on the planet while everyone else was still living in huts and caves to what it is now, they should keep them all there and not let that disease whatever it is spread to the rest of the world.
