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

Boris seems happy to play May's whipping boy.. buffoonery at its best, tripping over himself, testing the waters with one statement but meaning something else entirely.. 'tis the trickery trade of a grinning fool - pure theatre.. but again at the expense of the electorate.

but that's not true. there are people here from all sorts of countries not in the eu. it's not all black and white and extremes. it will end up somewhere in the middle

this weekend is the next milestone with Austria. come Monday project europe could be breathing out again. italy as well
But Austria supports the EU?

Quote:
Don't interfere,' Austria's far-right presidential candidate tells Nigel Farage
Far-right candidate Nortbert Hofer has ruled out calling a referendum on Austria’s membership of the European Union, and called on Nigel Farage, the former Ukip leader, not to "interfere" in Austrian politics by calling for such a referendum.

“It is not something I want. We need to build a stronger union,” he said

This time round. Polls for the parliamentary elections show the FPO with a clear lead. And parliamentary elections are not for a ceromonial position.

Trust me on one thing and one thing only Loz, no matter what you think you believe, the hard core FPO would be a step too far for you. They make the BNP look like a bunch of ballerinas.
