Here’s the problem of #Brexit, Brits who voted for it thought they were voting to leave Westminster and Parliament, not the nice countries where they go for sun and vacations. Oopps!
One thing you learn when tweeting about Britain, no one outside of London thinks of themselves as British. They all think they live in neighboring countries with their own language and football teams. 😂😂😂
As predicted before referendum. Brits can’t leave EU just like Brits can’t magically turn into Americans no matter how much they yearn for it. There’ll be no deal and Parliament will simply ignore the referendum as it it never happened. #TypicalBritHumour
