I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

So you disagree with John Curtis?

"remainers are more likely to vote tactically than leavers. "

And say that remainers and leavers will both vote tactically?

I shall vote to break the deadlock.

Good try Pontius^^!
I'll leave it to the Brits to determine who are the most concerned with their nation between those that studied the consequences and those that just say "talking consequences is fearmongering".

Scotland will leave the UK. It's inevitable now.

It will take a few years. Just like Brexit.
It will be painful. Just like Brexit.
Promises will be broken. Just like Brexit.
It will be a matter of principle regardless of the consequences. Just like Brexit.

This morning, Nicola Sturgeon has stated that there will be NO 2nd vote on any deal agreed.

I imagine she'd rather be dead in a ditch than hold one!

Just thinking again of BJ's proposal of "using technology to solve the NI border problem".
When you think some posters here believed it was realistic...

From my experience of Northern Ireland, having lived there, that is a typical bend in the border. That example is perfect for moving animals from one country to another at convenient times. e.g. subsidies, etc..

...........or perhaps putting DEEP ditches at each side of the road plus a short tunnel might be another option ...

Where have all the brexiteers gone ?

Where are they, the "We're leaving, period", "Fishermen will be better off", "Project Fear", and "Regain control" mob ?
Wouln't it be time to develop well considered arguments, promote a pro-Leave (or whatever) campaign ?

What do we have now ? Some scarce consideration about fuzzy polls amid a deafening silence...
Is brexiticism "election soluble" ? Did they just vanish 'Zap !' the moment the 31st-Exit Master Ring fell into the magma of extension doom ?

They got bored with all the pro-EU moaning on here and had good South African, New Zealand and Argentinean red wine to drink. Lots more hwere that came from.

Fly Aiprt; thanks for that, can't wait to show my Irish relatives!

I've spent many a happy hour on the back lanes of the border country way back when it was much cheaper to fill up your hire car in the North.

Flyaprt- Just wondering?

I posted once on this subject back in 2016. I have to say I have looked at the thread since and been amazed by the discussion - a lot of good inputs by both remain and leave.

To be honest though Flyapt I am surprised by your rather late but very frequent input. Why so late? Also, as a person living in France, what it is that so concerns you with us Brits leaving? A genuine question I assure you.

I love France in general, as I do most parts of Europe. I consider myself a European.

I voted leave. Had I been on my own without children I would have voted remain to hopefully guarantee some financial security.

I voted leave to ensure my Children and Grandchildren may have a better democratic future. Whilst I accept what you see in the UK is not some form of democratic heaven I think it is better than what is offered by our EU partners..

I totally understand those who wish to remain in the EU and I respect their opinion.

Kind regards
Exeng

Exeng, thank you for your message, and sorry I'm late ;-)
Actually I was not a great fan of aviation forums, have had my share in another life. But I landed here while searching for info about the 737 MAX mishaps, and reluctantly registered.
And then there was this Brexit/UK thread with strange contributions...

I must say, I'm surprised you are asking why I'm concerned my neighbours are leaving. Wouldn't you be interested if Scotland were to leave the UK ?

Not everybody might be aware of it here, but the public is very well informed about this Brexit affair on the Continent. People know what the consequences will be for us, but the usual attitude is a shrug with a "les rosbifs nous auront emm..dés jusqu'à la fin...".

I found some arguments here fascinating, it's not everyday that you communicate with people deliberately having their country shoot itself in the foot...
