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

Big corporations have amazing lobbying power. It's much cheaper to buy a politician than to relocate a plant.
Just as well then that it is the people of France, Denmark and Ireland that will have final say on anything other than EEA membership or WTO rules. The challenge of getting three countries to vote the same way at the same time will be interesting - the Danes and the French will want to avoid referenda at all costs in case in furthers the idea of more exits and the Irish are skilled in the referendum game and will be looking for just a couple little things like some kind of special status for NI to remain within the EU somehow (Oh and most recent - could you include Scotland in that too please? Thanks).

I don't hold out much hope in getting the 24 states plus the people of the other three to agree on very much to be honest.
