Thanks, have reloaded it (after deleting it). This is UBS's official response (published just after the referendum). Has some interesting stuff in there:Attachment 115807
But the leave camp told us that was all a load of bollox and should be ignored. Everything will be rosy,.... in Berlin.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Interesting situation for the Labour party: majority of the MP want to remove the current leader, apparent majorty of party members (very likely the people who paid 3£ to elect a labour leader) want him to stay.

A decent option for corbyn would be to emulate Sanders - leave the Labour party and form his own. let the general public decide.

Serious, not joking!

I am starting to wonder if Brexit will really happen!

It is clear that nobody can force Britain to invoke Article 50.
To invoke it will require an Act of Parliament in a Parliament where the majority of MPs are for Remain; how long that will take is very hard to know. It will certainly require a new PM committed to Leave and maybe later a new general election to replace "Remain" MPs.
This is exactly what I am hearing from people here in the UK at the moment.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

What I don't get is why the same people that had a go at me for fear-mongering and labeling the point and 'going on about it' are now decrying 'why did n0-body warn us?' and blaming the remain campaign for not forcing them to take their fingers from their ears.

Well, neither the Conservative party nor Labour party want it to happen.

But the referendum result clearly showed that that the electorate wanted it.

Typically, the elites would win over the people, but we will have to wait and see...

No it was puerile, to insult and bait fellow MEPs shows the kind of man he really is.
From where I'm standing this looks like one massive act of political vandalism, but as long as Nigel Farage feels vindicated I suppose thats alright

It's alright if the majority sees how much of a dork he is. Better would be if the rest of the world could see that he is an exception.

That is exactly what it is, he is looking to damage ties with the EU for his own personal agenda.

The man is calculating and dangerous.

Ouch, Palin finds somebody smart? I'd be worried.
Respecting the vote of people is enough, no judgement needed.
