Lets be clear here if the referendum was based on sound fact's from both sides it wouldn't be an issue but the fact is it was barely carried and alot of it was due to misinformation and because it was more seen as a protest vote as well. There's also the fact that the vote itself was deeply divisive across generations and territories and its a complete mess. The whole thing only started because it was the damn tories being stupid in the first place and blaming Europe for their own inadequacies. Now they risk the UK breaking up in the next decade because of it.
The only thing that might save them is if it's decided that parliament has to vote on triggering it and if things get bad enough beforehand there might be enough pressure on the MPs and enough shift in public opinion to basically say "screw this" and call it quits on this. The fall in the £ and the risk of prices rising across the board and job losses can swing things very quickly if it bites hard enough.
As for the middle east dont make anyone laugh that whole region is a cesspool filled with ignorance stupidity and Darwin Award State, they didnt exactly bring much democracy there only blew open pent up frustrastions. Russia and 'Murica aint making things any better but the place is a dump as it and it'll take a century or more or a nuclear war before they wise up and realise how stupid they are. Once the oil dries up out there they're screwed big time all that bad karma will come back to bite em.
Looking at the coverage of the UK government briefing on Brexit, it looks like the penny is starting to stop (and not just in value!)
I missed the first thread so apologises if this has already been discussed but something I'm interested in is if there is any likelihood of another referendum being called in the UK instead of the Britex process being triggered officially? Has there been any talk of that?
I only ask based on previous votes in Ireland such as the Nice or Lisbon treaty where by a referendum was run a second time and the people changed their mind.
Could we not call it 'The Brexiting'
It has been suggested and ruled out by May.
Personally I wouldn't.
Hopefully it won't harm the British economy too much because it'll be bad for all of us if it does.
It will harm us either way I think. Hopefully lessons will be learned.
being politically attached to Britain was a disaster for us. brexit is the heave we need to break the lure of that easy market.
It would be wrong to waste a good crisis.
