NEVERMIND THE EU, THERE IS NO U.K.:

England wants its independence (Patrick Hennessy and Melissa Kite, Sunday Telegraph)

The United Kingdom should be broken up and Scotland and England set free as independent nations, according to a huge number of voters on both sides of the border.

A clear majority of people in both England and Scotland are in favour of full independence for Scotland, an ICM opinion poll for The Sunday Telegraph has found. Independence is backed by 52 per cent of Scots while an astonishing 59 per cent of English voters want Scotland to go it alone.

There is also further evidence of rising English nationalism with support for the establishment of an English parliament hitting an historic high of 68 per cent amongst English voters. Almost half – 48 per cent – also want complete independence for England, divorcing itself from Wales and Northern Ireland as well. Scottish voters also back an English breakaway with 58 per cent supporting an English parliament with similar powers to the Scottish one.

The only justification for the state is war. If you are not Tolkien's Gondor, you are better off in isolated Hobbit villages.

That's all right, little Hobbits. Drink your ale and grow your flowers--Gondor will defend you.

Send Prince Andrew up north to become King Andrew I! Too bad the line of James II died out.

Yet they are contented to be ruled by the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.
