EU Referendum

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what people's thoughts are on the UK leaving the EU. Personally, I was very surprised to see the vote  turn out this way. I am also worried for what Scotland will do in the next few years. Will there be another Scottish Independence referendum? How will the EU referendum affect European and international relationships?

Voted remain. Got fucked as we lost in the polls.

Others voted leave and also got fucked as promises made my leave politicians are already being backpedaled on.

 

Do we need a revolution?

Goddamn fuck.

Are they gonna brexit my ass now?

I still haven't applied for residency after 3 years (stupid!) and was starting to think of citizenship as Italy is a place I don't want to go back until I'm a millionaire and can afford a summer house.

I think you'll be fine for a good while. They aren't going to start kicking people out of the country.

I wonder how the EU will react. Because as I see it, their only option is to treat it as a mutiny and really come down hard on the UK. If they don't, others might follow. So it's better to set an example. Not that I wish bad things for either side, but I just don't see an alternative if you want to keep it going. 

Also, good luck to the immigrants because I'm expecting things like this:

I think that's the attitude that ended up giving the leave campaign as much support as it had. Cameron was trying to negotiate a new deal for the UK but it was clear right from the start that he could get nothing out of all the negotiations. Couldn't even get enough of a deal that he could spin into a good thing. Made a lot of people realise that the EU does not have any consideration for the nations as individuals.

Now because of this elitist attitude, there are calls for referendums in many other EU nations and it looks set that Scotland will leave the United Kingdom. Scotland wants to be part of the EU, but will there even be an EU left by the time it all comes to fruition?

Troubling times ahead indeed but I think the vote highlights more than anything the huge divide within the United Kingdom right now when London votes remain but most of mainland England voted leave as well as all of Scotland voting remain.

Well at least the UK seem no different than other countries on the repartition of votes. Youth wants to do something, middle age people are confused and old people are bat crap crazy in their arguments to leave the Europe (like racism and limited sights of the implications of the leave).

Economics start to fuck the UK which may make them reconsider, since the older you get, the more you have to lose from the devaluation of your savings etc.

@Skybex the EU couldn't be nice in negotiations with a country threatening to leave, before it made its decision. For the rest of the EU, it's the best way to send the message to the UK that they have a lot to lose in leaving. I don't know if it has something to do with a lack of consideration. To me it's more a lack of reaction since UK was acting like a drama queen in thinking they're better off without us and everything,like we should beg them to stay.

@Sprony I don't know if it's the sign of everyone leaving, since the UK came to the EU very late and they left very early because they have an island complex. Euro skeptism is still strong in the rest of the EU, but euro skeptic remain for the most part relatively old, and the youths of all these countries will most probably fight harder than in the UK.
