17 million out of 70 Million voted Brexit.

Just saying.

And you were not one of the voters. (You seem to have forgotten I am Australian through naturalisation, which means I am not half Australian.)

I'll reply to this thread later, but Smeggie's 3 halves comment reminded me of my latin lessons when I was young. In Caesar's Gallic Wars there is a phrase in Latin that if you are not careful translates to "and all Gaul was quartered into three halves".

I suppose Caesar was an immigrant in his own way?

Or Australian politics ? But you don't like that either.

You are not lucky. Being half British, half Australian, and half French. How that works...I don't know

When I was living in the UK, I was told that "only girls" have halves. "Real men" order whole pints.

Tut, tut. How very sexist.

I was always told that nice girls drank sin and tonic.

Most of the 17 million that voted Brexit are either dead now or have moved to France

Anyway, I am still trying to work out how 17 million is a majority in a country of 70 Million.
