    This is just speculation and fear is a powerful tool to push people into different directions but those two states voted overwhelmingly to remain.

    Any thoughts on the future of the country?
    If Remain had won the SNP would still be pushing to break the UK apart. It's their reason for existing and to be blackmailed into abandoning our own democracy to appease the EU's trojan horse is a big no-no. It's more likely that the Scottish people will drift further away from the SNP as time goes on, especially after a genuine Brexit.

    This again seriously!!

    Have anyone of you been to Ireland over the last 20 years?? Have you spoken with an irish person regarding the matter?

    I have no doubts that it would be at least somewhere between 70 - 80% strongly in favour of remaining in the EU.

    We are going backwards yet again, the same pointless arguments about unworkable solutions or unrealistic goals.

    Technology - Proven not to be a solution

    Ireland leaving the EU - this is not happening so ergo again not a solution.

    The UK along with all existing members of the EU lose their abstention veto in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon Treaty when the system changes to that of majority acceptance with no abstentions or veto’s being allowed.

    Yes, and all countries taxes will be regulated from Brussels from then on too.

    thanks john , i keep praying the kingdom of england and its welsh principality will eventually find a political party with that aim and have a referendum as soon as possible but sadly cant see it happening any time soon but one can only hope and pray.

    But not our problem either.

    Admittedly a 300 mile hole in the EU's tariff wall could lead to the latter bleeding to death, but that's show business and nothing for the UK to worry on.

    i think the problem being borkie is the uk would no longer exist.

    oh i know you have the current largest population of the nations of the disunited kingdom , but you would only have 54% of the landmass , scotland alone has a third.

    Selling slightly over half of the current uk to the international community as the continuing state would be quite an act of salesmanship.

    As the old boy said in that funny film , if you cant control the whole of "your " own islands , who is going to take you seriously?

    Bit mair managed decline and you should be fine borkie.

    Yes, I went to Ireland 10 years ago, thanks. I didn't have time to speak to all 4.7 million people because I went for a hiking trip.
