Not to mention that Theresa May also wasted about half of that time trying to increase her majority with a snap election.

I don't see how they could get any better deal than the current one, especially if this is all they could get after a year. While it might not be workable treaty-wise, it seems like it would be better to make the Irish border stuff a separate issue from everything else so that it's not under so much pressure from everything else. AFAIK, the Irish border is the ONLY thing that's left unagreed-on, other than maybe minor details that can be hashed out as needed.

EDIT: Ah, this is the EU thread and not AmeriPol. Not the place to discuss the DoEd's centralization or lack therein.

Who the fuck are these people

Also in a minor note, Brexit is being procrastinated by May again, exactly as expected. Never ending extensions, that just go on and on

Well, she’s not finished trying to flog her dead horse yet; they’re scheduled to vote on it again on Wednesday.

Still bemused how they still have a government, presumably shit will go down after Wednesday or the 29th.

Nationless, directionless, the British nomad hordes would squabble with each other over territory disputes and the shrinking natural resource of wild Freddos.

Then, a passionate and charismatic leader emerged... Uniting the tribes who would listen and crushing those who would not, he rallied the scattered Britons and assembled them under a new banner, a new nation which would challenge the world.


And thus began the immortal legacy of Genghis Chav.

Britain already has King Arthur anyway.

He’s Welsh though, so either nobody would understand him or nobody would give a shit.

Ehhh depends on whether he existed. There's some very shaky evidence from Gildas concerning a Bear-man IIRC

One corroborating piece of evidence is that the name Arthur didn't exist before, but suddenly became real, real popular in Scotland and Wales in the early 6th century for a short period. It later surged after Geoffrey of Monmouth's book in the 12th century, but there's that otherwise unexplained 6th century spike in popularity.

Pretty much every source agrees that he fought at the Battle of Badon, and secured a victory there. Earlier (than Geoffrey) sources say he fought with the British, as in alongside. The implication in those sources is that he wasn't Welsh, but was allied to them. Possibilities have been mentioned such as the Roman-allied Pictish tribes (who did in fact leg it south after the Romans left, since they were in the shit being attacked by Irish, other Picts and Germanic invaders). This is the coolest option clearly, that he was a Pictish warlord.
