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

Quote:
Given that the words "illegal" and "crisis" seem to be reasonable descriptive words for it, is there any meaningful solution to be found?

What should the EU (or anyone for that matter) be doing exactly?

Clearly closing borders isn't working and the current housing of them in German and the shanty town in Calais, which is a tinder box on the brink of blowing up, is just losing votes and popularity to whoever happens to be in government.

Muchos talk about how things are going to hell in a handcart but not much in the way of workable suggestions from any of the critics.
When I was at university I had a professor who always said, before you start solving a problem, first formulate precisely what the problem is. If you can't do that, let the solution be. You're just wasting your energy.

Europe right now is still at the point of not knowing what problem they are actually trying to solve but bouncing solutions around nevertheless. Often in politics agreeing on the problem is the difficult bit. Once that is done the path ahead become obvious.
