Cry me a river, you silly lady! And speak for yourself; it is not our identity and never was. 

They tried every trick in the book to prevent this and failed on every count 😂

Those crying it's more likely because they won't be getting paid anymore by the gravy train

2017, the net contribution to the EU budget was 0.47% of the UK GDP. That's not exactly massive. And the positive impact of the 0.47% UK contribution on the UK GDP itself is multiple.

If you can calculate, it helps in many cases.

Classic "remain"! 

 

A statistical arguement which is meaningless if 1) you don't refer to exactly what the UK GDP is, 2) you make no comparison with the GDP or GDP% paid by other member states, 3) it makes no attempt to demonstrate or prove what the "positive impact" is, other than a vague reference to a " multiple"!

 

Then you end with a bit of abuse -suggesting that anyone who disagrees with you is stupid!

"It's probably the saddest day of my life so far. Brexit is something that attacks the very foundation of our identity," said Kirton-Darling, who plans to stay in Brussels with her Belgian husband.

If possible, she can even ask to no longer be British.
I am French but I regret on this one, not to be English ..
Our rulers in France have no balls;
The Europe of the "six" was certainly a beautiful thing, but it had to stay that way.

Maybe she is enthused by the prospect of an "Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals", looked forward to, if I recall, by one of your countrymen on this forum. An idea, which over the centuries, has sprung from various attempts at "European Unity" albeit one which has never really ended well!

My identity is British and has been for the last 75 years.

 

Beyond that I am English, and proud of it, and also a man of Wessex.
