    I don't know, I've never taken the time to chat to them.

    So why didn't they vote for it in 2014? And why did 335,000 people come here last year?

    Should Scotland be an independent country?

    They're not, only the SNP are because they're stupid and think it's the done thing to have two independence referendums in the space of 30 months. They got in with <50% of the vote and may get ousted by a coalition government at the next general election in 2020. So may as well wait 'til then.

    It doesn't matter. Regardless of the reasons why China's GDP fell, India's GDP fell during British rule. Britain was incapable of ruling India, unlike the other older rulers of India.

    The UPA is hundreds of times better than British rule. There's no insult worse than that.

    We are getting there. We are already the 3rd largest economy.

    India is adding 17% to global growth.

    Of course, genius. All Falklanders are British citizens. If you are talking about ethnicity, then they are mostly Scottish and Welsh, not English.

    Wherever the English go, they eff things up. Now they are effing up their own land and dragging down the others with them.

    I don't think anybody sowed these people, they were just squeezed out.

    It didn't fall though. Only it's percentage share of global GDP fell. The fact you don't understand this is why China is beating you.

    That's funny because you're not in the G8.

    Where?

    So what, still speak English. Still educated the same. Still English there too.

    Sure they do, Hong Kong, 5x GDP/Capita of mainland China, Falklands and Gibraltar, some of the highest GDP/capitas in the world. Formed foundation of American land-owning democracy. Canada and Australia, two other good examples. Singapore, 30x GDP/Capita of India, gained independence in 1965. You're just doing what every under-achieving ethnic minority does in the 21st century, blame slavery, or blame Britain, or blame old whitey.

    I suppose Zimbabwe was our fault too? Dumbass thought farm lands could be better managed by locals, and then suddenly finds himself amid a food shortage.

    Nobody sowed anything there. And you'll probably find it's the official NATO line being repeated by the UK. Meanwhile the official line from UK Joe Public is, "not two shits do I give." Our job is not worrying about what goes on at the other side of the world, our job is stopping it coming here. Kashmir is a problem for you to solve and we know Islamic extremism sucks.

    Al-Muhajiroun (Arabic: المهاجرون‎‎; The Emigrants) is a banned extremist Salafi jihadist[1][2] terrorist organisation that was based in the United Kingdom and which has been linked to international terrorism, homophobia and antisemitism.[3] The group operated in the United Kingdom from 14 January 1986 until the British Government announced an intended ban in August 2005.[4] The group became notorious for its September 2002 conference, "The Magnificent 19", praising the September 11, 2001 attacks

    David Milliband was beaten by his brother Ed to leader of the Labour Party, who was destroyed in the last general election. You're basically quoting nobodies.

    What're your people doing giving such nobody's power & prestige ?

    Sign of the times.Further proof that Britain has the sun setting on it faster than we thought it would.

    Thanks for your Freudian psycho analysis & the proverbial Freudian slip.
