It's all a bit like someone waking up the morning after the works Christmas do and realising you told the boss last night to stick his job as you are going out on your own. ...

Is a thing really clear about what will happen after Brexit - other than the Uk leaving?

It is all speculation, it was the same when the UK didnt join the Euro everyone said they couldnt survive and they did.

It wont make a blind bit of difference to the united Ireland debate - might get us closer to a referendum but will this really happen would the unionists / Uk let this happen and does ROI really want us?

I feel only time will really tell

Brexit will make the Uk poorer. It is not going to be six of one or half a dozen of the other.
Farmers might be hit very badly.
This is important for NI. Political décisions that impoverish people are a nightmare to implement. The Poll taxes are a good example.
Most Unionists think Brexit will be great.

Just under 50% of unionists voted to remain so they don't all think Brexit would be good
Careful now

This is a good read

https://www.rte.ie/news/analysis-and-comment/2017/1117/920981-long-read-brexit/

Interesting indeed. Are we realistically looking at N.Ireland staying in the customs union and the border effectively being down the Irish Sea?

Unionists will be publicly outraged but people’s livelihoods are at stake so they know they can’t have a hard border with the South.

A border going across to the UK will annoy the hell out of them though. An importer/exporter on both sides of the border could do well as a conduit to both jurisdictions!!

Can't see it happen. They're going to go for a hard border, DUP propping them up will see to that - they're just trying to abdicate responsibility for it as per Hammond etc by saying they don't want it and they won't be putting it up, so trying to shift blame to EU. They know if they do put it up and man it they will become targets and potentially restart the troubles.

Still waiting for someone to point out to the brits that if they could just have that magic invisible border they're proposing on the island, in the Irish sea, then no-one can have any issue...

So the Brexit vote is going to cause the troubles?? Feck! Do you work for the red tabs? Sensational stuff
