Brexit is about anti-globalist nationalism. The EU was supposed to prevent another European war. Its turned into a morass of centralized un-elected beureaucrats run amok. Globalism run amok. Now the media is telling you the sky is falling because the UK left. The Queen of England was caught on-mic saying there would be a European war if England did not leave, or because of this coming war it SHOULD leave. The people of the UK did not want an unfettered influx of mainly male "refugees" who were war fighting age entering their country.

Icelands football fans chant is incredibly powerfull, reminds me of their "pots n pans" revolution , maybe a key factor in their victories, so maybe if england fans had the pooeyflute going they would have had more chance?

SCHLAAAAAAAAAMMMMYYYYYYY!!!!

By the way, I don't think I have told you guys how Schlammpeitziger is pronounced:

Schlam - As in Scamp
Pei - As in Pie
Tziger - As in Cigarette

So basically it's like saying 'Scamp-Pie-Cigarette'

Trust me. I did a German introductory course in 1998.
  Wed. 6/29/16 9:46am NotarealDoctor:

Spidermank, I think that this is probably true. Just imagine, 10,000 Englishmen and women, almost united in playing Rule Britania, what a beautiful site. They could never lose!

Can you believe Neil Cicierega got a lot of bad criticism from fellow amateur mash-up artists because according to them he broke the rules of slowing the speed at which one song plays to accomodate for the other? They totally lost the plot!
