Re: Typical specimen is older than America
But I guess the UK wouldn't know what it's like to have a leader lead sensibly for quite some time, regardless of appearance.
.. quite interesting to hear from a nation who had to ditch the only person who actually managed to reduce your deficit by foisting a kid on him who didn't know how to clean a dress. I guess he wasn't wasting enough money on wars and the Stasi clones you have today who are quite happy to perpetuate the financial hole you have as they get served with tax money (as well as what you borrow per second) well before the population. Clever that, living so far above your standard that nobody no longer has a choice but to keep lending..
Also, as far as I know, the UK isn't capable of initiating a global financial crisis. It's quite able to help, granted (and the main actor in that here has dragged an enormous amount of loot out of that one himself, of course), but it still has too many people who can whistle back the government before it goes completely wrong.
That said, we're now well on track to lose a large part of those annoying shackles - to me, that appears the main reason to push for Brexit. Can't have them foreigners hold back the fleecing of the peasants like the US can.
On the plus side, as long as those peasants still believe all that nonsense about "democracy" and "freedom" there isn't really a reason to change, is there? The US problem is that the black ones have caught on. You can only kill so many of them without any noticeable consequences before the herd starts questioning your claims that you have a functional justice system - you might want to keep that in mind. *Proper* leadership would have dealt with that a long time ago..
