Those of us whose ancestors migrated from Britain feel a connection, however remote it is now. So when Brits shake off the shackles of the EU we remember our own history of how the colonies broke off from Britain to declare our own independence. The state of Texas has its own history of declaring independence from an oppressive regime. When the present day Brits declare their independence, we say "Right on!"
All the best to you, bros.
And to think, it was only last week ago we celebrated Magna Carta Day!
