Brexit

Someone said :

It's people outside London who want to leave. Britain would be more than able to commence it's own subsidies with the money it saves from propping up Bulgarian ditchwhackers.
And everyone in Northern Ireland is subsidised by London.

Oh dear, it looks like I have offended you again with my common sense....

The threat by France in recent days to abolish border control at the Channel Tunnel if Brexit happens smacks of the kind of bullying Ireland was subjected to when we voted no to Lisbon and were told by Sarkozy we had to vote again. I dont think it will work against a country with more or less the same population as France. Its especially ironic coming from a country that tried to stop Britain joining in the first place.

Hmmmmmm....
Did De Gaulle not accuse Britain of having a deep seated hostility towards the founder member states of the EU?...
Hence his reasoning for trying to block their joining...
Looks like the chicken have come home to roost..

If they don't have any right of residence in eu countries post brexit , will they all be selling up and moving home ? There might be a property crash in Spain

When the EU started bullying countries that voted no to treaties on integration it took a step away from union by consent to union by coercion and threats, ueermining its democratic legitimacy in the eyes of its people. At least we got to vote again unlike the French and Dutch, whose govt are afraid to give their people a say.

Why should they do if Britain are no longer part of the EU? I certainly wouldn't blame them.

Well two can play at that game given France has been under a state of emergency since the Bataclan massacre. France needs Britain's cooperation against terrorism. Hollande is throwing his toys out of the pram because EU countries are in revolt against "ever closer union". I predict integration will reverse considerably and if Brexit happens more will leave and possibly collapse the EU.

Im not sure I would ask for Britain's support against terrorism as it has a lot to do with their bullshit "war on terror".

Well there hasn't been a mass casualty terror attack on Britain for some years whereas there were two in France last year. So I think you're wrong.

Really was it France that invaded Iraq under false pretences then?

Ibec predicts that sterling will lose 15%of its value (from now a drop to 65p) which I think is quite conservative .
Who knows how far sterling could plunge when currency speculators decide join in.
will it cause property crashes? Britain? Spain? Cyprus? Malta?

I think Iceland shows a country can survive outside the EU. It got out of its own mess by not bailing out bondholders while the EU forced us to bail them out, lumbering generations with debt that will never be repaid.

It has an enormous domestic market of 60 million people unlike Ireland so international trade is less important for them than to us
