This is probably going to turn out to be cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Limey bastards must be suffering from scurvy. Pretty sure Scotland and Ireland are going to take advantage of this to break away from the United Kingdom and join the EU as independent sovereign States. You so stupid.

RE: The European Union UK Referendum
I think people in the U.S., despite the internet, especially as far as I am concerned, are not quite privy to EU politics.

It always seems that those in the EU are more aware of U.S. politics than anyone here is aware of how they are doing.

It is a fascinating conundrum.

1st emotion: Surprise: Wtf? Leave??
2nd emotion: Pride: Scotland overwhelmingly voted for Remain.
3rd emotion: Laughing: Where I work is overwhelmingly foreign and European. They all voted no in the Scottish referendum. They'll probably be voting yes in the next one.
4th: Anger. It was mainly the over 60's, the fucking baby boomers again, that voted leave. They've fucked this country up yet again just before they die off. Gen X and the Millenials are the ones who are going to have to live with it despite the majority voting remain.

Expect to see England reapply when the baby boomers die. Scotland won't have to.

But it's also not any of this happens tomorrow or even next week.
it seems that they have 2 years to make it happen and that's only after they officially declare their intent to leave.

I thought it would happen right away or at least by January next year.

But it's an advisory vote? So does that mean it's not really binding?

Quote:Britain's referendum doesn't automatically trigger an exit from the European Union, which has led a few commentators to suggest that lawmakers might simply decide to ignore or slow-ball the process. So could they? "In legal theory that is possible. In practice that is absolutely not possible," said Alan Renwick, the deputy director of the Constitution Unit at University College London. "If there is a vote for Brexit then on Friday the PM will indicate how the process of Brexit will begin."

Who wants to bet who's next? I can't decide between Denmark and Holland.

Pound lost 10% in a single day. Euro 3.8%. Holy fucking shit.

Cameron's legacy. Took us out the EU and maybe destroyed it. Broke up the UK. Fucked a pig's head.
Blair's legacy. War criminal.
Major's legacy. Fucked Edwina Curry.
Thatcher's legacy. Evil incarnate.

Cameron was for the remain camp IIRC? I doubt he even wanted to hold the referendum.

I wouldn't mind putting a little punt on it being France.
