    Colonialism and the oppression of natives is nothing to be proud of .... unless you're a jingoistic xenophobe

    Pretty much what the UK has ended up with as well (+ Bermuda, Falkland Islands, a few other Atlantic islands, Gibraltar, Cyprus sovereign bases, Antarctic Territories). But along the journey, they built a fair empire (ananchronous map below). They had a reputation as a pretty nasty bunch of colonialists as it happens, although perhaps not on the King of Belgium in Congo scale of atrocity.

    I think this a great step forward, pact between like minded countries. Much better than the dictatorship of the EU.

    Who is for it?
    Haven't you seen what's happening in Victoria? Then there's Jacinda Arden...

    Europe seems a far more relaxed place in comparison.

    In what way is Ardern triggering your delicate sensibilities?

    She's a successful woman...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
