Since we are going to be voting to leave europe 6 weeks from now. Might as well decide this altogether?

Should we also make our own continental singing contest and football tournament since we will pull out from eurovision and euro fifa?

You're already on your own planet, if that helps.

What? So, every country that's not in the EU should become a continent?

A continent is a geographical feature, you can't decide what continent you want something to be on. Whether Britain leaves the EU or not (hopefully not) it will still be part of Europe.

Britain has never integrated with European politics and culture so in that sense we are not European. However, a continent is geographic and we will always be in Europe.

Eurovision has been around 30 years longer than the EU, we won't be leaving it over such a trifling matter as a political and economic union.

I think it's a joke given how many people refer to the brexit as leaving Europe rather than the EU

Continents are broadly not geographically defined, they may use geographical boundaries but they are arbitrary and accepted by convention rather than due to an established set of criteria.

Yes we should have our own tectonic plate and raise it high so we can look down on the plebs.

It'd be nice to have our own continent to get away from being called European and all of their ideals about superstates.

Well to a certain extent, but it depends on what you mean by a continent, there is a difference between true geographical continents and geopolitical constructs which we call continents, eg. Oceania.
