Control over our laws, as only London & some of the south pays its way I am sure many higher rate tax payers would happily drop Ireland, Wales & Scotland.
Wouldn't it be fantastic if the English could seize this opportunity for a proper clearing of the decks, like the Turks did back in the twenties? Sweep away all this imperial bullshit, get rid of the monarchy and unelected upper house, let the Home Colonies go their own way, and start afresh - like a kind of Singapore of the Atlantic, but without the foul smelling fruit and corporal punishment.

It will never happen. That saboteur at Number 10 is no Attaturk. But a man can dream, no?
