Idiotic.

I understand that the UK has shrunk to a second world country that now fits in one time zone but I thought they would have a health care system that would take care of your mental disorder.

I do have to remind you that there are 15,000 banks and savings and loans in the US and the reason entire governments are failing in your EU is your lax banking regulations.
I do have to remind you that customer's investments are protected because of these regulations; that no custo9mers lost money in their accounts when the banks fail.
And the banks were bought up by neighboring banks.
And that Lehman Brothers was bought by BARCLAYS which as we know was fraudulently manipulating interest rates which helped in the EU banks failure.
BARCLAYS: you remember them?
Your own words which I have linked you back to just to remind you stated 7000

Wrong, the subprime mortgage scandal, as admitted by your OWN government

Not so for investors investments

Lehman Brothers. Honey it makes no difference if a failed company is bought by another company or not, that company still failed. 453 of them in the case of US banks, whether that is 7000 or 15000 makes no difference to the 453 figure.

Just because Barclays bought part of Lehman brothers makes no difference to the fact that Lehman brothers failed because they were unable to sell the toxic debts that they had amassed in the subprime mortgage scandal and its customers lost confidence. Both Barclays and Bank of America declined to purchase the entire company. Barclays purchased a stripped clean “portion” of Lehman.

It was not the UK that had its world credit rating cut

May I ask when you last voted for a president? Oh no, you didn’t he was appointed by the vote of 538 members of the Electoral College. Rather like some elected MPs are voted to the House of Lords.

Oh my dearest butt breath, of course I remember, I don’t have meds to have problems with. What did I say, 500 and odd people in the Electoral College elect the president for 300 million people. Sounds pretty democratic to me

True but just about everything you said is based on delusion to there is no need to disprove it. One thing for sure, you are welcome top your delusions.
Lying about? Like the US bankers causing the world recession, a point that has been acknowledged by your government end you Electoral College appointed president. But for some reason not for a bird brain like you. Wonder why that is?
Like 453 US banks collapsed. NO matter hoe many banks you claim exist it makes no difference to the number that have collapsed.
Like the president being appointed to preside over 300+ million people for you by the vote of just 500 & odd members of that compromise the Electoral College. Is that really democracy or do you live in a dictatorship?

Certainly sounds like a dictatorship compared to the House of Lords where most members are elected by the vote of democratically elected MPs. We give them that right when we elect them.

P.S. did you forget how to spell shrug or did you just run out of “r”s?

My vote will be yes simply on the fact that whenever our politicians mess up they will fall on their own swords rather than place the blame on Westminster.

Also,for a small country we punch above our weight; I think we're capable of taking care of our own political issues. If Norway can, why can't we?
