Hopefully, bodes well for Trump in the election. Smug liberals and their Democrat demigods can keep preaching how there's nothing wrong with the status quo and that anyone that doesn't fall into line has a learning disability or is just a bigot, the people disagree. The fact a candidate like Trump can even get this far is proof of that

Oh yes independence from those English Bankers, instead they'll have to deal with German Bankers. Makes perfect sense.

The Germans are capable of turning Scotland into another Ireland.

NI calling for reunification, Scotland for another indie ref. I feel for the young people who voted overwhelmingly for remain but were outvoted by all the old buggers who don't have to live with the consequences.

You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!

This board about to become more popular. I took the precaution of checking Vermont service center's processing times the other day, I-130 petition for sibling relative processing applications made in November 2011

Calm, calm. There's still two years to consider things. According to Beeb reporting, LePen is calling for Frexit, Wilders is calling for Nexit, the Swedish right party is calling for Swexit and the Northern Party wants a referendum for Italy. The dominoes could start falling, and where would Scotland and NI go then? Germany's push to negotiate with Turkey about admission to the EU could accelerate the breakup, so opinion in those parts of the UK will be very volatile over the two year period of negotiation. Maybe Scotland wants to merge with Germany and learn to speak Kraut?

Nicola's "mandate" could very well evaporate and her push for a referendum exposed as having more to do with her personal ambition than what would be best for Scotland.

Disappointing. That's it, just disappointing.

Good thing I have a US passport. Not in a rush to go back to the UK now, especially since this will likely give Sinn Fein/IRA a boost in Stormont.

But it's OK, because apparently leaving the EU will eliminate unemployment in the UK and will also reverse climate change and fix all the derelict town centres. Right? I mean, that's why we'd do something like that isn't it? Not just because a few Romanian car washes are upsetting the sensibilities of Daily Mail readers who barely remove their heads from their arses long enough to take a shit.

I recommend avoiding TIO for a while. It's like a 1970s skinhead party in there

I think he renounced it, or at least he once intended to.

Will this vote cause the price of HP sauce to fall. My wife paid almost $10 I think, she refuses to tell me exactly how much she paid.

Jesus

There is a grocery store in town that sells it at the same price as A1 sauce. $3.99 or thereabouts. At least they used to, haven't looked for it in a while as I still have some left over from my last trip back. Which may, as it turns out, be my last.

They should start their own EU, with hookers and blow.
