I am beginning to be convinced there will be another vote. But one of the problems is that Britain has very few friends in Europe and some people will relish evicting them. I think in a month or two that feeling will recede.
I think you are right. The Brexit campaign was mendacious.

Nicola Sturgeon says MSPs at Holyrood could veto Brexit - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-36633244

Overplaying her hand I would imagine.
Not necessarily . Nobody knows what will happen.

Still, a bit like Dev delaying the legalities of Edward VIII abdicating, she is making the most of what power she has.

The frustrating thing about that is foster could speak up too but won't. Their campaign failed in ni to a 12 % majority and they are that deluded they've been patting themselves on the back.

56% must include a good few protestants.
Any Protestant farmer who voted leave must have wanted penury

Wouldnt matter what Foster says. If it requires NI consent she doesnt have the numbers. Even if she could muster up the UUP. SF and SDLP can block it with a petition of concern. The way around it is westminster taking back powers from both storment and holyrood which would be mana from heaven for independence movements.

I suspect robinson wouldn't have suipport Brexit in the first place and would have been willing to articulate NIs economic interests after this vote.

what is needed is a campaign to manifest this majority in distinct arrangements for NI which minimise the the damage. I'm not sure who can lead this?

The UK pays 350 million per week as part of running the EU, it will be interesting to see how the EU plug that hole in there finance if the UK does leave.

It is 11 million per week.  :o :o

Most of the contribution goes back to farmers and disadvantaged areas in the UK.

It will be interesting to see how London plugs that hole.

Yes you did!

You admitted you read the article which explains, right at the start, that Britain doesn't pay 18bn a year (your 350m * 52 weeks). But you pretended you hadn't read it and posted the anti-intellectual rant anyway.

I posted 30 words.  It was hardly a rant.

I didn't pretend anything, I said I read the article.  The UK pay a lot of money into the EU every year which will leave a huge hole in there finance if the UK leave.

Stick to your crap[tion] competition if you can't argue without being facetious.
