As if anyone is like really "from Canada". 

It's just a sham operated by the USA to make us think the land to our North is actually inhabited with people.

We all know it's seasonal people paid to pretend as if they live there.  They move around just like people that tend shops in the cruise port destination cities.

Although I'm pretty sure the polar bears are legit.

Brexit had its pluses.  Brought the cost of our trip to the UK down about 15% over what it would have cost a year before. 

According to what I was reading this morning - all Santa left me was coal; can't imagine why - it looks like things are recovering. Still a huge loss & long way to go.

Over the past 5 years who have been the primary actors in the mass killing attacks using bombs, vehicles, and knives?

I've seen the numbers of these attacks that match (or best) those in the US for frequency, numbers killed, and numbers injured. I'm curious about the bad actors.

The mass killings-Islamic extremists who can't read a Q'uran.

Killings in general over here-a worrying rise in knife crime amongst (mainly) black young people.

True it is always safer being well to do, and conversely never safe to be poor.

Also a person stands a lower chance of being killed by gun violence in places with strict gun laws that are enforced.

Actually, I was just reading that London currently has a higher murder rate than NYC.

Most murders are stabbings that occur in lower class neighborhoods where drill rap is popular.

Don't see how you fell down the rabbit hole, your post didn't seem political to me. Anyway, this whole thread is political. But it's foreign politics, so doesn't count. And it allows me to rant a bit.

The whammy of Brexit is the No. Ireland - Ireland border. The peace in No. Ireland requires no hard border which was doable when everyone was in the EU. But when the UK leaves they are gonna wanna control that border. Only solution - give No. Ireland back to Ireland!

I posted up some graphs and even a list of 2017 mass murders in UK that shows a higher frequency with greater numbers of deaths and injuries. They used bombs and vehicles and knives. There's even a movement to ban knives in the UK.

I think it's a good idea myself. Why should Britain kow-tow to the likes of Angela Merkel and a pack of pompous dunderheads in Brussels? let them screw their own countries up bailing out Spain, Greece and Italy. The rise in fascism in Europe is a direct result of foreign governments dictating immigration and currency policy.

Good thing because their cars all have the steering wheel on the opposite side.  Just screws up the parking situation and there aren’t enough spaces tp go around as ir is.  Makes it harder to get a table at a good restaurant too.   Put a fence around it and keep them otta here.

The remainers were the ones in power, other than Boris. Theresa May is (in my understanding) attempting to mitigate the spirit of Brexit by keeping as many ties to the EU as possible. Again, in my understanding, the point was to disentangle Britain from the EU as far as currency, immigration and unfavourable trade agreements.

My "serves them right" comment was along the lines of hoisting them on their own petard for delaying implementation of the will of the majority.

Now please bear in mind that my view is from the perspective of a long gone expat, who's views of England and Wales are solidly through rose coloured glasses and that I have no intimate knowledge of the whole affair, other than talking with rellies, most of whom are remainers. I get my news through the Beeb and Reuters and of course may be totally off base..

"Pooh?" said Piglet.
"Yes, Piglet?" replied Pooh.
"Is everything going to be OK?"
"In what way, Piglet?" asked Pooh.
Piglet rubbed his nose in a nervous sort of way. "You know, with Brexit. And rationing. And 729 international treaties to re-negotiate from scratch just to get back to here. And," the Piglet ran out of breath then made a small choking noise and swallowed. "And all that?" he finished and looked over at Pooh with a hopeful look.
Pooh Bear rubbed his nose too, but didn't find it quite as comforting as it seemed to be for the Piglet.
"Well, Piglet." Pooh said and then stopped to think some more, for this was a very Big Thing for a Bear of Very Little Brain to consider. "Well Piglet," he finally continued, "It all sounds like a very silly idea to me."
Pooh and Piglet looked out over the Hundred Acre Wood and contemplated the matter. Quietly, Piglet slipped his paw into Pooh's.
"We're totally fucked, aren't we?" the Piglet managed in a hoarse whisper.
"Oh yes." replied Pooh, patting his paw. "Completely fucked."

Pound sterling has fallen to 1.28 USD (again).  Might be time to start planning a trip to visit your lovely country.

May you should build a wall.  Wait, Hadrian already did that, and now it's an attraction!  You see how that all worked out.

Hadrian built it on the wrong border. The new one would have to be built across the entrance to the Chunnel, you know, to keep all that Eurotrash out.....

Offa's Dyke, Hadrian's Wall, Antonine Wall, looked like they all stood the test of time..and that's just three in a tiny little island-think how everlasting a wall would be elsewhere-China could build one to keep the Mongols out..oh  wait...
