Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

Sinn Fein already calling for a vote on Irish reunification, Alex Salmond saying a second Scottish referendum now more likely.

And in breaking news - turkeys vote for Christmas.

We just shot ourselves in the nuts. And called Nurse Ratched for help.

Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

I am really, really stunned and heartbroken for my UK friends.
All of them voted Remain.

Watch this and try not to despair about humanity. https://twitter.com/SimonNRicketts/s...45810862940160

Similar stories emerging - They didn't vote to leave, they voted to protest the government.

Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

A lesson in nationalism for you all. Compare the language and tone of the SNP (Liberal Nationalism) vs UKIP (right wing nationalism)

Looks like a co-ordinated move against Corbyn is fast approaching too.

I've seen more fight from a dead weasel. Lovely bloke and one of the most trustworthy politicians going. But utterly incompetent and surrounded by bad advisors who are dividing the party.

The sooner Labour cease to exist the better.

Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

We're utterly f-cked. Don't know what will happen. Scotland will leave UK and rejoin EU. Northern Ireland won't be allowed to do the same. Can't believe this. Horrified

Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

Never underestimate the stupidity of voters. http://indy100.independent.co.uk/art...d--Z1772TI4aNW

There's dozens of examples where people have said on tv, they voted leave but didn't really understand how leaving would affect them (One said it would cost her job)

But, words fail me on this. One of the Leave people went on TV and said immigration wouldn't be limited or controlled after all. People who voted Leave are upset.

So sorry to hear this. It's very distressing to me and I can't even say I fully understand the background or consequences of this.

They still use the pound anyway, like the Swiss and seemed to keep autonomy. I don't know what they hope to accomplish... other than shitting all over any existing trade agreements. If they think they'll really stop the "wicked" immigration, they're morons. You colonize... you're GONNA get an exchange on population in both regions.

Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

I don't even know what to say. We voted to Remain here. If the British Army come back to police the border here there will be violence. All those years of peace building in jeopardy because of the racist English. So angry today. It's a complete nightmare.

Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

And yes the problem is twofold - the British still think they're powerful and don't get that the Empire is gone and they can't take it that migrants want to come to the UK. But it's fine for them to have colonized the world.

Watch how Northern Ireland is completely erased from the picture btw. Just when life was starting to be good for Nationalists here. Utterly distraught. The whole country is.

It's starting to look like no-one actually wants to push the button.

Been doing the rounds for a while now, but I thought worth posting because it's very clever.

Re: Britain to hold referendum on leaving the EU

Also, your Labour Party is apparently hopeless at staging coups. Our pollies could have gotten rid of two state premiers and at least one PM in the time UK Labour has been faffing about trying to get rid of Corbyn.

Article 50 has been triggered. It's happening.
