    Default What if UK & France became a country?

    I'm a patriot, and so are they (The French) still...

    What if UK & France become 1 country?

    UK & France, would be French Speaking & English speaking and we both have nuclear weapons and demographics like one another...

    The French could use Francs if they want and their capital will be Paris and The British could use Pounds and their capital/our capital (in Britain) would be London.

    ?


    1 country, 2 sates, 2 capitals, and a mishmash of Anglo-Franco intermixing to federalise the two, with buildings and links being mixed in between the two London & Paris.
    We could make states only stronger because they both used to be countries & empires, we could link maybe this.

    Right because a Franco-British union has NEVER been suggested before you started this thread.

    Honestly, the very fact that it has in the past back when there were castles and what-not, been suggested.. I like that these ideas have been tossed around in history in support of this now because maybe now could be the time, where no one invades and we try to keep our cultures like languages and whatever. I don't think they want our queen and I don't think we want to give her up, so why should we give them a queen they don't want or lose our own? - Why can't UK & France be independent countries forming as 2 halves of an even greater one?

    It was when Henry V conquered it and that troublemaker Joan of Arc ruined it all.

    Hmmmm this union is not out of possibility if we had a different timeline like say Britain wasn't an island but a peninsula extending from modern day France then the modern area of the UK would probably be the same nation as France or at least far more French influenced (Assuming other butterflies dont happen in this timeline). In fact if the UK was a pensullia I could see France being the world leader since it would have more land area.

    During the Suez Crisis in the 1950's it was suggested but the alt-history people seem to be interested in trying again.

    Honestly... Whenever you ask the French if they would consider to make a full political union with another country, the answer is (1) Germany, (2) Belgium, and (3) Italy.

    UK is far, far at the end of the list. Even if we have huge affinities and sympathy for Scotland.

    As a matter of fact, it could have happened at least three times.

    (1) If the Plantagenet house won the hundred years war

    (2) In 1940, if our gouvernment had the courage (and the time) to accept Churchill's idea

    (3) During the Suez crisis

    I can completely see the attraction. You might get your chance if they shoot Britain the middle finger in 6 weeks or so. Good times!
