    Christ this is utter torture. If I was there and had voted for that crowd I would be absolutely livid.

    Nice, if gloomy headline though!

    The EU has our backs by refusing to countenance a hard border on the island. We couldn’t have asked for more support from Brussels than we’ve received.

    The logical route out of this for the UK is a second referendum, but what a struggle it’s going to be to get there.

    What is the reason for this? INFO VOTE© is way more likely after today.

    The obvious answer is for the Brits to get out of Ireland. They can Brexit away then. They would also save so much more money.

      What part of Ireland is that old sport ?
      If you want the North you can have it.
      Write a cheque for ten billion sovs a year and promise them free healthcare.
      Do that and they’ll bite your hand off.
      Until then hop on the barstool next to BB in his favourite expat Irish pub and sing the Wolfe Tones back catalogue while skulling warm porter and singing ” You’ll never beat the Irish. ”
      Your national tongue is currently lodged between the backside cheeks of Angela Merkel’s rear quarters.
      And they ain’t pretty.

        humiliation of this magnitude must hard bad

        i almost feel sorry for you – then again, can’t help but laugh

        “I don’t know a single English person who wants the North” says mushroom boy while the entire UK parliament refuses to countenance even considering splitting up the kingdom, even though it’s the only realistic solution.

    The reason is very simple. A peoples vote requires at least a 10 week campaign by Law. Working backwards that gives a date of January 18-19. By moving the vote to January 21 she has quite cynically taken this option off the table. I guess she hopes to focus minds in Westminster.
