    Default OK which of our Europhiles is this?

    Pensioner declares home republic in protest against Brexit | Daily Mail Online

    Anti-Brexit pensioner declares home an 'independent republic' and charges visitors £50 for a visa with plans to adopt the Euro, elect a President and sign the Maastricht Treaty
    Dr William Riches' new state is his house in Newnham, Gloucestershire
    Academic, his wife Judith, their children and grandchildren are the only citizens
    New 'Independent Republic of Middlewatch' has £50 visa to enter post-Brexit
    He said: 'I was so mad after the vote to leave that I decided to put the signs up and declare my home an independent republic'
    Republic is purely symbolic and apes famous 1949 film Passport to Pimlico
    Can't be AssSnob as he has no sense of humour

    though 'AssSnob's Republic Supporting Europe' does work in a Father Jack way.
    WTFH is a Possible 'WTFH's Anti-Brexit New Kingdom' has a ring to it.
    AtW maybe 'Squirrel's European eXclusion' zone works.
    Can't be Scooter, Darmy or NAT but 'Expat Reunited Republic Of Rhineland' seems ok.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    Maybe we should declare war on his republic. We stand at least half a chance of winning it...



    Edit: and to answer your original Q, it says he's an academic; that counts all of the remainers out.

    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    No I think the study of our remainders is academic!

    As far as I know none of the above referenced are pensioners.

    Bit obvious really. Whoever heard of a contracting professor or university researcher? I doubt any Brexit-in-tears are academics either.
