    Well the EU takes 1% too, so you can understand why @Picard and I refer to it as imperialism 2.0.

    Once we successfully extract ourselves from it, you can have as many seats on the ICJ as you like.

    Nope, that was an oligarchy.

    Next you'll say you were living in a democracy when the British invaded.

    The queen is over 90, peeing in her pants is probably normal regardless of her company.

    During the UK break from the EU, there could be lots of bullshit about who owes what, so we need that seat, you can have it afterwards for as long as you like.

    One in 2015.

    The queen doesn't invest her own money.

    I very much doubt things would get that ugly but I really admire your verve of not having anything stolen from you .I hope you see the whole lot of the EU as Jerries .It certainly helps having Merkel over there just in case you lot lack inspiration for a fight .

    Btw - aren't judges supposed to recuse themselves in cases where there's a vested interest involved . Besides , I don't think the EU would not have foreseen such a move .What's to prevent them for seeking a similar arrangement ?

    The EU is a fungus that grew on the surface of a trade deal.

    Famine was equally rampant outside British territory and under 5 deaths are still sky high in India, 1.3 million, half that due to malnutrition.

    Osama is a separate case. Sunni-Shia conflict has been raging for centuries.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...nce-day-everything-need-know-partition-india/

    70 years ago, Partition came into effect, dividing British India into two new, independent countries: India and Pakistan.

    At midnight on August 14 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of independent India, gave a famous speech which hailed the country's decades-long, non-violent campaign against British rule:

    At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.

    However, it soon dawned on the leaders of both countries that the hope and optimism of that night would quickly turn to the harsh realities of how to handle one of the largest mass migrations in modern history and the ensuing communal violence.
