Apparently there is talk floating around that there might be a second referendum. Personally I don't see this happening.

Theres a petition for it to Parliament but no I don't think it will happen. But the UK hasn't a clue what to do now. There were meetings the other day about an independent London. The Tories are in a flux. Labour is in a flux. All the lies from the leave side are being admitted. Some of the "scaremongering" from remain is coming true with currency and job losses.

The EU wants an immediate invocation of article 50. The UK can't make up it's mind on when or even if article 50 should be invoked. It's a tightrope for the EU. If they make it easy for uk then it'll be a domino effect of more European countries to leave. If they make it difficult then they'll be accused of bullying by all the decessionists across Europe. And meanwhile Farage et al get paid by the EU to destroy it.

Its a pity the filming cut out half way. The platform under the man subsequently collapsed, sending him hurtling head first after her.


From the Irish Times:
Sir, – With the increasing prospects of Trump in the White House, Boris in Number 10, Putin in the Kremlin and Le Pen in the Élysée Palace, the next meeting of the G7 may actually resemble the Mad Hatter’s tea party. – Yours, etc,

EAMON FARRELL,

Sandymount,

Dublin 4.

Interesting to see how there might be a rush to get an Irish passport, as allowed under the Good Friday Agreement.
This may drive a re-unification quicker than planned.

@ SR, ha ha, yes the EU has a rocky road ahead too.

Can't see reunification happening for a long time but its nice to think it may happen within our lifetimes.

Edit : Star Trek has us down for unification by 2024 so who knows?

Already started and not only people in NI applying, many applicants from England, Scotland and Wales it appears.

Re-Unification?
Never happen when the majority vote in NI is held by Unionists.

Apparently racist and xenophobic incidents in the UK are on the rise since the Brexit referendum vote. Poles have been told that they are "vermin" and no longer welcome in the UK. Disgusting.

Frankly speaking - I think that the main ally of the Unionists is a large part of the electorate in the Republic. The aspiration for unity of any kind is way down the list for people down south.

Without a doubt there is little support for a United Ireland in the Republic.
Many Nationalists here are themselves happy to remain in the UK , though I do wonder if recent events may change their minds.
The media need to stop trouting on about re-unification, as it stands the criteria for a border poll under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement are not being met.

What a mess !
The only leader in the uk is Nicola sturgeon , the rest are running around like headless chickens .. probably trying to get an Irish passport application form,
We should publish the applicants names !
I bet you farage has a second passport!

The funniest thing about this whole mess is the eu have implicitly only offered Norway style eea, membership .
So there will be free movement and the uk will have to pay even more and best of all no more moaning and complaining out of them because
They'll have no voice .
how much is pound worth now ?
Imagine how much it will drop if Boris is elected leader ha ha ha ha

Btw
neither NI or Scotland voted to leave the EU , there is no reason why they can't maintain full membership of the eu while the ruk leaves , as Greenland and Denmark did .
the uk is after all made up of constituent countries and referendums are about accepting the will of the people.
