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

"Two weeks after Britainís EU referendum, Europe has defied predictions that the UKís vote to leave would inspire a surge in copycat breakaway movements, with establishment parties enjoying gains and populists dropping points in the polls.

In Germany, the Brexit aftermath has seen Angela Merkelís popularity ratings surge to a 10-month high, almost returning to the level the chancellor enjoyed before the height of the refugee crisis last September.
An Infratest Dimap poll published on Friday also marks a two percentage point gain for Merkelís party, the centre-right CDU, and a one point gain for the centre-left Social Democratic party.

Rightwing populist party Alternative fŁr Deutschland, meanwhile, has seen its ratings drop by three percentage points to 11%. "

The Europeans are not so dumb that they fail to recognise Brexit is a disaster

The AfD is having some problems internally, which I am sure will be overcome. This might explain a temporary downturn in approval.

The Swedes and Danes are increasingly casting doubt on the EU. Germany is actually concerned about losing further countries. There is a lot of bla bla about we need to take the concerns of the people seriously. To me that sounds like anything other than water off the back of a duck.
