Brexit

“Brexit.” What a clever name for a very complex and emotionally charged issue. If nothing else, the newsys have slippery people in the naming department. It's important to have a clever moniker for your issue of the day if you want to be taken seriously.

First, let me say that I'm enormously impressed that this has not been an issue of comment on Pennymachines. After all, this is a site devoted to earnest love for an era bygone. Political discussions are for other forums, usually listed under the organic title: “bile discharge.”

As an American, I do not have an informed opinion on the merits of the subject, either way. And it's none of my business, really. The purpose of this post is to declare that whatever happens, the United Kingdom will continue to be the greatest example of freedom and democracy in the history of man. Greece may have been the birthplace of democracy but the UK is the nursery, the family home and the university. Without England, there would be no United States of America.

So, good luck with the election. We Yanks have had and will always have the greatest respect for all you blokes. Long live the United Kingdom, and God Save the Queen.

what gets me is no one is giving the answers to the important questions like "if we leave the EU"
will old German slots be more expensive?
will Donald Trump ask the UK to become the next state in the union ?
dose anyone really know what would happen? (not the Donald Trump question ,we know the answer to that one !OMFG! )

One German newspaper headlined today that if we stay in they will accept Hursts final goal in the 66 world cup :shock:

With all the yammering going on and on about the results, no one is focusing on the one really important question: How does Britian's decision to leave the EU affect the value of John's allwin collection??? !OMFG!
