The Royal Family going bankrupt? Not bloody likely. A panty shot of Kate Middleton is worth millions. The Brits do have their priorities.

But it isn't likely she would collect the money and turn it over to the family coffers. The house of Windsor is a classic example of 'cash poor'. Real estate and holdings are nice but one would have to liquidate them for dollars.

Wish we could kick our government to the curb. Seems like the UK is more democratic than the US.

I agree with you, it would be nice to clean out the senate and congress. But, the British PM resigned all on his own accord.

All of you peoples of European ancestry should be rejoicing in this move. Yes there will be hard times to come for the UK. That's a given but it is necessary. People only shine when they are challenged and hungry, and lately Europeans and their offshoots have been dulled by being fat and happy.

Humans cannot live in the huge communities we built in the last 100 years. Small independent chunks of population seem to be the most driven and creative and healthy. This is a great era for Brits and independent thinking cultures.

Donald Trump arrives in Scotland and congratulates them on their decision to leave. Scotland voted to stay. What an idiot. Americans should be embarrassed.

Humans cannot live in huge communities? Have you ever been to London? It's a huge melting pot of various nationalities including Israelis, Russians, Indians, Pakistanis, none of whom are signatory to the EU. And London voted to stay. If immigration is the issue in Britain, why are they blaming it on EU migrants?

The most densely populated areas anywhere are sh!tholes made even worse by being a "melting pot".

That is the exact opposite of what the globalists want.

I have to admit, I know just about nothing about Brexit. It's something that I choose to stay ignorant about because it doesn't effect me at all, not even a little bit.

But what I learned from a liberal is that Brexit is racist and was caused by Donald Trump.

I also learned from a different liberal that the Orlando shooting was caused by Donald Trump. It wasn't caused by a radical Muslim following his faith, it was caused by the very man who is actively looking to kick those radical Muslims out of the country. So yeah, that makes sense, Donald Trump shot those people

We're not. And with all due respect, if you don't like who America chooses for a president, you should move to a country that isn't so reliant on America.

Last I checked, Scotland is part of the UK. He arrived congratulating the UK.
