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

Hi,

until 2019 the UK is still a member of the EU. Which means hope continues until March 2019 that this pointless and stupid Brexit decision can be reversed. If Brexit cannot be stopped I hope it is the softest Brexit possible.

I am proud to be an EU citizen who was born in the UK.

Have fun
Martin

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

Not only is Brexit not going to happen, but the United Kingdom is going to end up a full member of the EU, complete with Euros, Schengen and all the rest of the single superstate nonsense.


Just you watch.

Want to have a CHF 1000 bet on that?

Edit....lets go for 2 CHF 1000 bets. One on Brexit and a second on the Euro.

Hmm. A massive run on the pound might chivvy that one along.

The US wouldn't like it, but they have, er, distractions of their own at the moment.

I'd be happy to loose actually. But I won't (or wouldn't if DB accepted the bets)

Just you watch.
Well A50 has been invoke so BREXIT is happening. And while it is possible to reapply, being accepted is not automatic and furthermore the EU is moving on with its plans for an EU army, a finance minister, a Euro Group fiscal budget and seemingly even Euro Group bonds... so a more integrated EU than before, can't see the U.K. in that.

And what if say, we switch conspirancy mode on for a second and there is a secret deal between the remainer tories and the EU to engineer a Brexit just to show the Eurosceptics that their plan leads to catastrophe. That would make a lot of people angry at the Brexiters and discredit the concept of Euroscepticism for at least a generation, while also killing off incipient movements in places like NL and DK. Once sufficient anger has been vented and apologies offered, UK will be readmitted and all will be friends.

OK, highly unlikely to be true. But just suppose if.

We don't even need to get into conspiracy theories for the first bit. Among the speculation immediately after the referendum were the suggestions that:
  1. the rest of Europe would be watching the UK's march towards an exit and if it wasn't too painful, then the rest could fall like dominoes
  2. the Pro-EU lobby would like to make life as difficult as possible for the UK in order to discourage the others

Heck, that's just stuff I remember off the top of my head; no need to look for conspiracies, vested interests are already there in the open.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has described UK plans to ensure the rights of EU citizens in Britain after Brexit as "a good start".

And in other news, "House prices never fall" and Is Francis the first Protestant Pope?

If the events of the last year have taught us nothing else, we should be able to take on board the fact that we cannot anticipate every outcome.

And here's the full story. It might take a few more weeks of playing nicely to win back some confidence.

No, that most certainly is not the full story. Not by a long way!

Pathetic, disgusting, rude comments and bullying from certain users like this one, sent via the rep system, via messaging and via email etc. are not shown in your picture! Moreover the list of rep is also not complete as older ones are missing.
