'the way the UK/Britain/England views itself as the centre of the universe is interesting (and historically somewhat predictable).'
Doesn't every country view itself as the centre of the universe ?!

and he is right, there are plenty of midge infested places in Scotland.

Yup, very serious, City of London still handling gaziilions of Euros, ( because EU do not understand money ) and now moving into new markets - Nissan investing billions in UK, Shell and many other companies moving head offices into UK, fed up of the control freaks in Brussels... Yup, it is going great even though the EU thought they could shut UK down, it is now the EU that is fading slowly into oblivion..... their share of world trade dropping inexorably and up to their eyes in Covid ( should have used the AZ vaccine ). The EU is holed below the waterline... glug, glug..... and they are busy rearranging the deckchairs, UK is the lifeboat but is no use to EU. Inward tech, Business and scientific investment into UK more than Germany and France combined. Every thing is coming up roses....

I don't want another Brexit thread but...
Shell is moving HQ to UK (for lower corporate tax reasons).
City of London is (for the moment) handling Euro exchanges but overall City has lost much more business than expected:
https://www.reuters.com/business/fin...dy-2021-04-15/
Nissan has received more bribe money to build in Sunderland:
https://www.cityam.com/nissan-sunder...boris-johnson/

You are in the 18% of Brits that think it's going well:
https://www.independent.co.uk/politi...-b1965140.html


It doesn't matter though because we're stuck with it, for better or worse.

only saving grace for the "city" is BOE and its offshore accounts. this is why some business is returning its headquarters to the UK so the EU courts cant investigate them.

we NEED the EU for food imports as the UK mainly England cant support its population with the resources we have. what happens when the EU has a food shortage???? the UK get nowt... remember its mostly the French and Spanish that the UK gets its food from and we all know how hot headed they can get............

I'm sure Northern Ireland will be pleased to hear that.
