A board to discuss all your real world problems.

Should 'England' become states of the USA?

Post by chesya » Fri Aug 30, 2019 12:10 am

I'm glad we're not discussing divisive politics any more. In the UK an unbelievable division has opened up between leavers and remainers regarding the EU. Really destructive arguments break out really easily and it's only a matter of time before serious violence breaks out. I don't see why not we can't discuss left field issues. When I lived in France it became increasing difficult to distinguish between British, Irish, North Americans, Australians, South Africans. We have similar jokes, the same slang, and other deep cultural proclivities. Even 10% of African Americans are descended from Edward III (echt) such are our ties.

Scotland and Ireland wish to stay in the EU, England and Wales might be up for it. Wales has only 2 million population, but has a separate identity and it's own language spoken by a third of the people and would have its own state. England has a Population of 55 million. It should be divided as Northumbria (Northern England), Mercia (midlands) and Wessex (South England), (15 million each) with London which is is highly distinctive with a population of 8 million being a separate state. 5 new states adding 15% brut GDP to the US.

I think an awful lot of English people actually think that and that the EU is a German plot!

Sure. If we can have Texas and Hawaii, I don't see why England wouldn't work.

Dear England,
First let us get finished integrating Alberta and Greenland, then we'll get back to you.
Signed, Uncle Sam
