I Wonder What He'd Have Thought of Brexit?

RE: I Wonder What He'd Have Thought of Brexit?
lol, kay, probably just kidding...but..in context..."the Bruce"

It's an anglicised version of a french word, "de", meaning "of".  Robert of Bruce.  It could refer to either a place or a surname (and ofc surnames often referred to places themselves - and, later, professions and even perjoratives, lol)

Thanks for your answer though!

What Britain has achieved through Brexit is an irreversible diminishing of its world position and wealth, Britain will still exist, but it will be a lesser thing, a withered husk of former glory.  In time the folly of our exit will become apparent and we will crawl back to the EU with tails between legs. Its as inevitable as the sun rising in the morning.

The Racists and the Xenophobes and ignorant will cry out to internationalism to save them

and we will say NO!

Britain has been a withered husk of former glory since 1945.  There was painful denial for about 25 years, but then the denial became too silly to maintain.  But forget glory.  Britain has no real position and not a lot of wealth.  Britain has been nothing, a little jaunt to the falkland notwithstanding, and is nothing.  It has not yet dawned on Britain that the denial of the fact that it is nothing is also too silly to maintain.

What Britain gave up through brexit is a chance to put the nothingness that is Britain behind her and be a part of something that has much more potential.  What Britain chose was to continue to be nothing alone in the hope that denial can last forever and the rest of the world would for some reason humor Britain as Britain the glide happily along as if it were still something.
