Breaking News...It's Official...the UK is no Longer in the EU

The UK is no longer in the EU !!!

Well I was half watching TF1 tonight whilst eating my tea and there was a report about standards of living in France. Income and all that !!! Did not catch it all. More interested in my pizza.

But from the graph they showed, it does not look good reading. Income has fallen since 2008. But standard of living has remained stable. How that works, I don't know.

They crossed referenced France against other EU countries. Germany is better and Iberian countries are much worse.

Anyway, that is not the point !!!

On the EU map, there was a EU country missing. Yes, the UK. It had gone. Nowhere to be seen. In replace of the UK was just some water. It was all blue. No sign of the UK on the map. LOL. It had disappeared. Sunk maybe.

So forget 2020, according to the TF1 the UK is no longer in Europe.

The second report was about how Canada was the preferred choice of country to leave France and find work. ROFL.

You heard here first, the UK is no longer in the EU according to France.

Sure.

But then again, most French believe the Sun is put out every night when it falls into the sea, and is re-lit the next morning Big Smile [:D]

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

We are in good company, though. I think it's possibly been fixed now, but missing from the world map on the New Zealand government website, was......New Zealand. D'oh.

True, Andy! Although as it's based on news I confess to having read it before I heard it on HIGNFY!

I suspect most Brits believe the UK left the EU 2 years ago, anyway.

And quite a few of the French, if problems in prefectures when getting CdS are to be believed.
