We know we will have opt-outs: of the Euro, of Euro bailouts, of any European armed force. If that ceases to be the case, we will have to leave. You forget I did l live both in the Midlands and in the South East. The former area had big Indian & Pakistani communities and the latter Italian immigrants in particular. Italian was commonly the first or only language spoken by older generations and Fiat and Alfa ruled the roads! I've also travelled a lot to Poland and know the people there to be some of the nicest and hardest working you'll find. We don't have a Navy the size of any other two anymore and several of the Empire colonies have outstripped us. Forget Independence Day: let's live in the real world.
