Great Britain wants to be a sovereign nation again.
Luxembourg is where the SECOM licenses are granted. They have much to lose.
Geebus their deep state seems as bad as ours.
Why do they want to stay in the EU so bad?
Come to Washington Boris, get a heroes reception from the Don.
A people—or in this case an historic coming together by four nations—does not morph into a nightmare by pivoting back to a proud heritage, The “nightmare” is when a people lose their way and abandon their family achievements, won over generations of struggle.
“Why do they want to stay in the EU so bad?”

International socialists hate freedom. Karl Marx placed no value on freedom.
Luxembourg is the equivalent of a medium sized city. *yawn*
Some people not of German origin also like someone else to do the creative thinking.
These people aren’t too bright themselves.
