I propose a Swiss style Cantonal, federal Government for the UK
Britain doesn't have a mountain of cash like Switzerland because we are not neutral and insist on having wars to keep the taxes flowing.
Britain doesn't have a mountain of cash like Switzerland because we pour it into the EU to keep Slovakians and Bulgarians in Mercedes and farming subsidies.
Britain doesn't have a mountain of cash like Switzerland because every politician who ever obtains power instantly spends it on whatever they feel will keep them in power.
Britain doesn't have a mountain of cash like Switzerland because we encourage the feckless to breed, third world beggars to plunder our housing/benefits stock and politicians are in charge of education
Britain doesn't have a mountain of cash like Switzerland because the British are criminals by nature and anything that ins't nailed down is nicked, sold off cheap and the proceeds invested in Stella Artois or Skunk
Britain doesn't have a mountain of cash like Switzerland because we make FUCK all. Our education system doesn't support engineering or manufacturing, it supports morons who can tell you Wayne Rooney's star sign and nothing else.
Britain doesn't have a mountain of cash like Switzerland because anyone can become British. Unlike the Swiss where even if you are BORN there, you have no automatic right to Swiss Citizenship and your local community will decide if you have added enough value to the community to become Swiss. No mumbling in Gujurati that you understand what housing benefit is and can you bring all your relatives too please. In the back of a lorry from Kurdistan.
Foreign youth commiting crime in Switzerland is an interesting one. If you cannot control your Kurdish son because he is "out of control", the whole family gets booted back to Shitistan. I LIKE that approach. We cannot even send Africans back to Africa or Terrorists back to Jordon—thanks to the EU.
Swiss jails are not full. Ours are, to overflowing.
The Swiss pay £100 Million a year to get the good bits of the EU. The UK pays £30 BILLION a year to be ruled over by shaved Belgian Baboons.
Rant over. The EU is shit, we've tried it, it is too expensive and I don't like taking orders from people who live abroad and have never voted for.
Now, whether you agree with all of that or not, one cannot deny that it would be a fucking great state of the nation address!
Old Holborn carries the following tagline on his blog.
Free Speech and I don't care who I offend. If you are easily offended then you are a cunt. If you read the Grauniad just fuck off and die. I am not here to make friends, I am here to rant and vent my spleen.
You can't say fairer than that!
