Scotland will almost certainly go it alone to remain in the EU.

I'm not sure whether NI will follow suit - I think the protestant/loyalists might still hold sway.

My brother voted for Brexit - he believes that the ... "UK" ... will be alright - they'll still trade with Ireland and the EU.

Kindestr regards,

I don't think simply staying in the EU is an option for Scotland. I think they'd have to split from the UK first and then apply to the EU like any other country. It'd be easier for them because presumably their law is already up to EU requirements.

It's tragic that so many people can fall for blatant lies.

My brother is of the opinion that Scotland can't join EU without Britain because of the fees they'll have to pay given that they'll be looking for money from EU rather than paying more, like Ireland.

Post Re: Brexit is coming

Erm, is America still the leader of the free world? Given the treaties signed with it (America) in the last few years (and those under proposal now), the last thing we are is free. I fully expect England to become an American vassal state after the UK crumbles.

We are already America's thrall in the EU, an organisation already hammered into capitulation by U.S. corporations (see TTIP).

I'll never get to be a space tourist :'(

Given Brexit, there are now doubts being raised about TTIP going ahead.

Post Re: Brexit is coming

Given the Tory position on it, even after the leak, I'm left with the impression that it's something of a priority.

It's far too early to make guesses, of course, but I'm fairly pessimistic today.

Sorry :D

It's still hasn't quite sunk in for me.

I really cannot fathom how people have been convinced to vote against their own economic interests.

Is it the beginning of the end of the UK?

It seems that people in Scotland and Northern Ireland are rethinking belonging to the UK.

Greetings,

Indeed it does seem so - however, can they afford to go it alone cost-wise as part of the EU?

What might the Welsh do?!

I had seen a BBC article on Brussels reaction - a sign read "Insane".

I think that the rose-tinted glasses will slowly clear as people in Britain begin to realise that they've made a highly unwise choice.

There's already a website for a second referendum on it.

Kindest regards,

James

This shouldn't be a problem. in 2004 a few poor countries joined EU. Later Bulgaria and Romania. What is the alternative? Staying in the UK and being constantly bullied by England?

On the other hand if there's a wave of countries leaving the EU, Europe may become the butt of the world. Will there be a point in joining EU or what's left of it then?

Greetings,

The financial strain on donor countries as dependent countries remain - like Scotland and NI - will only increase.

It does seem as if the EU is heading for the exit - or should that be #Theexit!?

Kindest regards,

So, will the UK really leave?

All of sudden they don't seem to be in any particular hurry.

I think everything is a bit of a shambles right now.

The Tories don't seem to have a plan at all.

Now Labour, rather than presenting a formidable opposition to the government in crisis have decided to eat themselves.

So far so good.

After Novermber comes and goes, and the U.S. does not vote for Trump, does that make the U.S. population smartier than the U.K.?

Post Re: Brexit is coming

I see there is an amount of back tracking already, specially Scotland is looking for a way to negate the vote and there is a address being collected for a revote on the subject.

Who thinks that the EU should boot UK out ASAP? I'm for the UK staying but now that the people have spoken shouldn't it be the responsibility of both sides for the exit to happen in a swift and decisive manner?

How do you suppose brexit will have any long term effect at all on your economy? The UK imports far more manufactured goods than it exports so there will be no trade war between the UK and the single market. This should be an advantage when negotiating a trade agreement (something you are unable to do as a member of the EU)

You never adopted the Euro as currency. So there will be no change there.

You will be able to have border control. +1 for tourism industry and for the safety of the people who wish to come there and do business with your country.

The UK will still be free to offer all of the financial services they currently offer in the EU, through subsidiaries, if they chose to do so. There are over 150 other countries that exist outside of the EU.

London will remain the financial capital of the world. There is no other city in EU which will even come close. A few years ago there was talk of Frankfurt taking London's place as a financial center. This will never be. Germany hates financial market activety.

The sooner they go the better for everyone.

The whole thing was Cameron's idea. He should invoke article 50 tomorrow. But being himself, he just chickened out and ran away.

I've just noticed how prophetic the title of this thread turned out to be.

Here's a vid of the same chap I linked earlier talking about Brexit
