There is also 100000 names on a petition to make London independent of the rest of the UK and stay in the EU. I think Boris started that one. Rumour has it he voted to stay. he didn't actually think they would win the vote.
Quite the opposite in fact. First, I didn't have a vote. Second, if I did, my vote would be for remaining in the EU but with pressure for reform. I am of the view that the EU should be about trading, financial and pragmatic co-operation without full loss of sovereignty for any member. The impact of the decision will be felt in different ways by different sections of the community depending on exactly how they benefited from EU trade or EU support. All said however, a vote is a vote, not as Cameron rightly said, a Neverendum.
Would now perhaps be a good time to point out that this is the BKIR message board and my interest here is in the performance of BKIR and the possible impacts of the decision on BKIR. There are plenty of other places in which the merits and legitimacy of the referendum result can be discussed, challenged, etc.
You sound like you are from the pro leave camp. You are trying to downplay the imact of leaving. The markets read it right; is spells disaster for the UK. City of london is goosed.
Caramroon tried to blackmail Europe and he failed and had to fall on his sword. Not sure how he dares show his face in pubic. As for that bafoon Boris!!! He was booed getting into his car. u really want him as you next PM?
UK has become the laughing stock of the international community for making one of the the most incredibly stupid decisions in its history.
The queen should pop the pair of them over her lap and spank their bums...
Discussion in the house will likely support the conclusion that the vote was the vote ... unless the petition gets more than 16,141,241 + 100,000 thousand votes ...
Markets appear to have over reacted. The UK has not gone away, the business of doing business will obviously change though. For BKIR where 70% of its revenue is domestic, doesn't appear to have warranted an immediate 25%+ write down. Unlikely this would seriously hurt its much smaller UK business either.
No doubt another set of solid results just around the corner.
Unfortunately there is no politican in England strong enough to call for a 2nd referendum and pull it off. Nicola Sturgen is possibly the only one that would have the qualities needed. It would solve her problem as well though.
