I voted Brexit and I want to move to France

You see, I am fed up with immigration to the UK. I can't live there anymore. Too many foreigners.

So I am moving to France...as an immigrant

No, it's just Mr Smeg mockingly quoting 'elsewhere'.


I didn't vote (Brexit) and I wanted to move (back) to France.

You see, I am fed up with immigration to the UK. I can't live there anymore. Too many people. 5 million new ones in 15 years.

Queues for the doctor, queues for the hospital, no school places in the local school, rents through the (dodgy house) roof, housing ladder is impossible, council homes are all sold, Greenbelts are now all building sites, roads that go nowhere fast, full of stressed out road-raged people...........

So I am moving to France...as an immigrant

Man, I wish they'd give us EU nationals a chance to vote on Brexit. At this point, I'd for a Brexit as quickly as possible. So tired of all the whinging and moaning about the subject.

Please, let's get this over with! And given that the UK has rejected the deal that was negotiated, looks like a "no deal" Brexit, no matter what Parliament has to say on the subject. Just do it!

That's just how the English feel about Scottish Independence - but that's another story.

I so agree with you. I am so ashamed of being a Brit given all the damn whinging (but hey there is a very good reason why Aussies talk about whinging Poms). And it's not as if anyone on this forum can change whatever happens anyway.

Roll on 31 October!

(And I really cannot see how any kind of Brexit would affect Smeg and his family. His kids must be dual citizens and if his wife had really wanted to work in the UK they would have moved there years ago.

If we get a second referendum, i shall vote for ‘the brexit’ just to spite everybody, and then run naked round the garden with a pair of chopsticks up me nostrils and and a feather duster dangling from me nether regions, waving my newly acquired irish passport.

So up yours Delors......
Hop off you frogs...

Et cetera et cetera et cetera

Maybe ‘run’ is a bit far fetched....

He is American I believe and wreaking havoc across the world.

He started this

Should we talk about French politics which you have equal distain for ?

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
