You hate me?! I thought you liked me... :(

On a different, and more serious note...

Brexiteers like Boris Johnson are prepared to sacrifice the Good Friday Agreement for their project

Are you people insane?! :shock:

Yes, that’s what’s scares me most about Brexit and I think of you look at my (Elessar’s) historical posts, I’ve made that clear for about 3 years.

So, in addition to all the political and economic reprecussions, the UK will have to face domestic terrorism. Again!

Is it worth it? Really?

That and the fact that we will no longer be able to drive on the continent. Our 'Independence' is going to be well worth it.

"I'm not racist, but..."

Racists don't hate other races. Thy hate everyone. But most of all they hate themselves.

You just found that out, huh? Well, boy... If only there was someone who could've explained to you islanders that this would happen.

Oh, wait - someone did. Everyone else on the planet, including the (the) president of the United States!

Until the final agreement is signed, it's not too late to back out and make a U-turn. Once it's finalised, it's game over. Until then, you still have time to call your elected representatives and demand to reverse the decision.

It's really up to the voters.

My belief from the outset, was that the only way you can fix a broken system, was from the inside, not by putting yourself on the outside of it.

I also believe that we will wind up as nuts deep in the EU as we were before the referendum, paying the EU as much as we are now (if not more), having about as much, or even less control of our borders, and as an added bonus, having absolutely no say in how it's being run. I wonder at what point things will start looking up, as I don't think it will be in the first ten years after we've "left".

I'm not really sure it's up to the voters. There's a belief that re-holding a referendum, sucks of Scotland's problem. Keep on pushing for a vote on something until you get what the complainers believe is "the right result". We had our chance to choose, and it went the way it did. If it was the right or wrong decision, then that's life. Hopefully someone might learn something from it.

I just find it REALLY curious that the larger percentage of the social/political groups who are going to be the ones most fucked over by the immediate results of Brexit, are the ones who voted for it, ie Labour voters. Explain that one, please!
