Nothing to do with Trudeau, it's a very large country, they speak the right language and there are plenty of opportunities for nice photographic sight-seeing days out / weeks out

It's funny that they've still got a problem with the anti-Europeans despite getting these folk what they wanted!

From what I've read the general opinion on Trudeau is that it would have been better for Canada if his dad had had a wank instead.

Much easier to emigrate to England.

My wife would love to live somewhere in the country with access to horses and all this independence nonsense has her looking at the internet and houses for sale in the north of England!

The East Midlands is surprisingly cheap too.

That's because the anti-Europeans are paranoid obsessives on the topic and they are hyper-vigilant for any sign that a PM who was on the Remain side (however expediently) isn't 100% committed to the Brexit cause. It's a significant problem for her and explains quite a lot of her approach. Cameron put party before country and I'm afraid to say May is adopting the same deplorable tactic.

If you're interested around North Yorkshire let me know. I know a few of the agents these days and would be happy to show you around.

So when they finally get their wish of being out of Europe what are they going to try to rip the party in 2 about in the future?

Heaven only knows. It's not an exclusively Tory thing. Look at Labour and the SDP and now Momentum. Politics is full of clever fools.

I know but this has been such a long running thing for them.

Maybe they'll all go away and quietly die?

Many thanks Michael. I am hoping it will all be several years down the road before (or if) we are forced to do something but North Yorkshire would be high on the list, perhaps with Cumbria. Last week my wife e-mailed me the details of an extended farm building in Berwick Upon Tweed which she quite fancied!

Some of them are depressingly young in mortal years (if not in mindset - think Jacob Rees-Mogg, who must have been born aged 50).
