Yeah, could someone explain to me the DUPs thinking? Surely they are going down the same route as Cameron and getting confused between tactics and strategy (tactics being strengthen the border short term, strategically though Brexit inevitably weakens the Union long term). Just don't understand what they think they are going to get from this.

Even if a border poll is staved off, Scotland is going to go and an NI with an EU border to the republic and one to Scotland is just not tenable.

The re-imposition of the border plays to their neanderthal wing and emphasises they are a different country. They were never comfortable with this blurring of the border carry-on. They also believe that repeal of the Human Rights Act will allow them to get away with discrimination against LGBT and foreigners, while also putting an end to the Fenian's taking their grievances to the European Courts. Personally I don't think there's a chance in hell the Brits are going to break an international treaty brokered by the US and lodged in the UN for the sake of Ulster backwoodsmen.

Will British citizens living in the E.U be living there illegally once the Brexit is official? What will be the status of Irish citizens living in the U.K and vice versa U.K citizens living in Ireland?


That is the $64,000 question.

Would be surprised if there isn't deep in the bowels of one of those treaties we voted on some rule against member states making separate deals with non member states.


All up in the air.

Know a couple of mates of mine living  in London  years  who took out a British passport in the last year or so just in case.

There's 300000 U.K citizens living in Spain, they'll have to move back to the U.K. The amount of people both leaving and returning to the U.K will  be mind boggling

Like feck they will. Agreements so they can stay and amnesties at worst will be in place long before Britain exits.

Yep, certainly a possibility. Plenty of horsetrading to do. Serious national self interest will come to the fore.

Might throw Gibraltar's future into the mix.

Really complicated now.

We were talking about europe here and one fella is of the opinion that leaving europe still won't happen and Cameron leaving (the smart move) is not what Gove or Johnson would want as if say Johnson was elected leader he cannot go to the eu with a peoples mandate as he isn't technically the peoples choice and therefore he would need to hold a general election.

As before if Cameron had went forward he would have had the peoples mandate and with him leaving it messes their plans up.


Now if a general election was held and a party go in that was pro euro (labour) and judging by the back lash and people realising how bad things could get this could happen then they could come to an agreement not to leave the euro.

fingers crossed??

One hell of a call, obviously it would need done before Article 50 is activated, that said - if you are out you are out, I think others will follow.

Near time, had he showed any sort of leadership the vote would have been different, how he became leader will always amaze me.

I like corbyn but not convinced he's a viable leader. They'll end up with someone who's tory-lite like khan or the like.
