    It would have to totally enclose all of the UK. Would make a trip to the beach a bit crap. And I don't think we want to stop anyone coming here, just French woman with sexy voices and bodies. If we build a wall all the way around then people from Iceland couldn't get here either. Or Ireland.

    We could make the wall a tourist attraction? Could be walked on.

    I suggest a defensive moat. After all, a Englishman's home is his castle, right?

    Holland does seem a bit pointless. And Belgium to. I don;t think many people would miss then.

    Like they build bridge pillars across water. Just more close together.
