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

Legally Britain is a full EU member until they invoke article 50; so they do not have to ask anybody.

If the British Govt. don't want to respect the British people's will that is no problem legally and there is already the Greek precedent about the austerity referendum.

"the EU does not respect the will of the people" Nothing to do with the EU, they cannot force countries to leave regardless of how the countries people vote.

Boris is only interested in becoming PM; as soon as he succeeds then Brexit will be conveniently forgotten.
I keep reading about this possibility and I'm flabbergasted! No wonder the argument about giving up democracy being in the EU was of no importance to most the Brits - they got nothing to give up, obviously!
What a waste of time and energy this was if the result can just be ignored. And how stupid does the idea of a second referendum sound under the present circumstances? Wtf for? ROFL.
Why doesn't GB just put the Queen back in charge - at least be honest about just being a commanded populace.
(She might even do better!)
