Hey guys I'm half English and proud and I love England, I also love my other two countries but I was born and I live in England and I wanna be close to my English family and black family who live here too. Hopefully I will be able to go on holidays to visit my family who live abroad and stay in contact with all of my fam


My question is should England leave the UK, what are the pros and cons? Personally I think we could do it if we wanted to and it could work with the right leader

We just need a decent petition and then a majority

As a Scottish born man who has lived in Yorkshire since the age of 2 I consider our great United Kingdom to be my country, not just one part of it.

On the basis that I consider separatism to be tantamount to treason I naturally oppose the idea as do millions of our fellow people.

England basically is the the UK. Hence why there is nationalist movements in the none-england parts of the UK.

And for the Conservative and Unionist Party to disband?

UK GDP is about $2.8tn, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish GDP is a little over $300bn so yeah although independence would be terrible thing psychologically and damaging to society at large, England would continue to power ahead.

Losing land, territory, resources, people plus the psychological impact. It would be like losing a finger. You can live without it but you'll always feel something is missing.

Not to mention that we are one nation despite what separatists like to think.

We would only lose like 8 million people but yh sure for some people it might feel like a blow

But do we actually need Scotland and Wales and Northern island even
