Mexico as new EU member

Well, given something deeply implausible the EU is going to be one member down.

Mexico is also about to have one less trading partner, so it seems logical.

Will at least mean the Eurovision Song contest will be slightly more interesting, "Mexico - nil points" and North Americans will be able to drive to the EU.

       I can't imagine Mexico having nil - if anything they alone could radically improve the balance of music within the song contest.

       Also, when Trump says he'll build a wall and make america great again, he didn't specify if he meant north or south.

       Australia already participates in Eurovision, so we're halfway there.

       Mexico would be welcome! If they end up not liking all those Americans that will flood in to escape the terror and dumbed down hell of Trumpland, and decide to leave the EU, will this be described as Mexigoes?

       Possibly not such a stupid idea....romance language, kind of Spanish culture, so should fit right in..

       It would be more useful for the UK if, as the UK leaves the EU, the Channel Islands (not currently EU members) join.

       Good point. Eurovision negotiations already have a precedent for non EU members. We will need access to the single market of cringeworthy music.

       Don't forget Scotland. I'm all for Scotland staying in the EU.

       That isn't possible. Even with years of therapy, and industrial quantities of medication, somehow the nightmares always resurface.

       Definitely get rid of scotland. I suggest deep frying the entire place and feeding it to the hungry inmates at Battersea Dogs home.

So you've been to Glasgow, then.

       Regrettably, yes.

       //Regrettably, yes.// Oddly, Glasgow says much the same thing.   

       Ricey Bob (a friend of Sturton's, who comes from Glasgow - (and who wouldn't?)) tells me that there was a running book on whether you'd get out of the place alive. If the landlord of the Stoat and Bobcat didn't charge his customers for broken glasses, I suspect you wouldn't have.   

       Oh, and he said to tell you that Big Gertie McFadden's tests came back negative, whatever that means.

       EU = European Union   

       Are you planning to move the country Senior ?

       I've got it. We move the border to the Texas- Oklahoma line. Mexico picks up some economy and joins the EU, the US gets Democrats for the next several election cycles, a wall is built, everybody's happy.
