Liked that fiction. Perhaps there will be once a channel between Britain and Germany or more from the continent. We have 3sat between Austria, Switzerland and Germany and arte with France. So I would be delighted, if I could learn more of the british way via television in a channel with approach, of course!!And that 24 hours a day.

There is already a channel between Britain and the rest of Europe: der Ärmelkanal!! The English channel

Indeed and you can also name a 2. channel, the 'Eurostar-channel- or tunnel'!
But still not enough ( for a veritable Maulwurf-mole)!

A channel through the channel
Britain is not as separated as they feel (floating lonely in water...)

Thanks to Mister Cameron the day is coming nearer
Difficult issue: who is to blame for miseries?
the government - mighty managers or economists - the market crisis - banking institutions?
The EU - a scapegoat? The new sports for Englishmen: chasing goats
better than to think what could be done in Britain as well as in rest Europe to understand and respect each other - that's so exhausting
> Difficult issue: who is to blame for miseries?
I am not a fan of monocausal explanation. But there is something you can measure: When a ferry leaves Calais for Dover, trucks are full with merchandise. When the ferry returns to France, lorries are near empty: Britain has little to produce and sell anymore. Former Prime Minister Thatcher managed to rid GB from those old, tired warhorses that was Britains industry. But what followed wasn't a more modern, competitive industry but trading at the stock exchange - almost exclusively. And now this form of trade has shown its limitations and Britain lacks a second leg to stand on.
Hopefully the majority of Britons are sane enough to stay within the European Union, which is an asset to Britain, just as Britain is an asset to Europe.
I have no clue what those Brixit fans have in mind: Form a British version of North Korea - separated from its democratic neighbours, ruled by ideology?
