Since “Brexit Day” the UK looks increasingly ungovernable.
No-one knows where it is headed. As we said before
“Post-Brexit: It’s impossible to predict what the future of the UK might look like or even whether it will exist at all in its current form”
Today, less than a week after the vote, ruling and opposition parties have no leaders.
There’s no plan A, not to mention any plan B and the “UK” could not be more dis-United if it tried.
“Brexit means Brexit”
“No general election before 2020”.
Comments: The sun is finally setting on the “British Empire”.
Britishness is nothing but pomp and circumstance, with no substance.
It’s all empty, all just show.The Union is fracturing.
Thanks to Leave campaign’s 1) non-existent plans and 2) lack of thought about the effects
And here’s Northern Ireland’s lovely, extremely right-wing Conservative Secretary of State encouraging people to vote Leave, cause economic and social upheaval in the UK, the EU and internationally and seriously damage Ireland and its peace process
Remember: Those who voted Brexit voted for the dissolution of this disUnited Kingdom and dysfunctional “family of nations”.
Since Westminister legislated for English votes for English laws, why shouldn’t we have English votes for English exits?
Remember: England and Wales forced the issue
Are Northern Ireland and Scotland happy to live under a UK government, or are we not?
Are we nations or are we not?
Do we have a future in the UK, outside of the EU, or do we not?
As nations do we risk being “ dragged out of the EU against our will”?
Comment: External self-determination refers to full legal independence/secession for the given ‘people’ from the larger politico-legal state. It is the right of peoples to determine their own political status and to be free of alien domination, including formation of their own independent state.
Hellair. This is the UK government speaking. How did you come up with that idea?
“Hellair, Northern Ireland, Gibraltar and Scotland here
The UN wrote it down”
“Article 1 1. All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.
Remember: The Spanish PM’s attitude towards Ms Sturgeon “We’ll only talk to the UK” could be construed as violating the same principle.
Indeed, at this very moment in time, discussions are taking place in Brussels about transitional arrangements for an independent Scotland to remain in the European Union (EU) after the UK leaves. And Robert Fico (Prime Minister of Slovakia),who will be the EU’s next President from next Monday onward, has offered to help broker a velvet divorce for Scotland from the rest of the UK if Scotland votes to become an independent nation.
The moment the UK leaves the EU you are in breach of the GFA because it sets out how the Westminster and Dublin governments are to co-operate in matters pertaining to us. It is inconceivable that Sinn Fein, our main nationalist party, and probably other parties too, would not make representations to the UN”.
All we want to know is, if the UK leaves the EU, can we remain in?
If the answer is No, then the next ones are:
Will we remain in
if Scotland becomes an independent country before the UK leaves the EU ?
if Northern Ireland votes for a Re-United Ireland before the UK leaves the EU?
After all our lovely SOS can’t stop us otherwise she’d be denying us the right to self-determination
can Gibraltar stay anyway?
It’s in the Med! And Senor Rajoy wants it!
Comment: Not exactly difficult questions.
