But will they admit it to anyone in public or just double down?

Now that the former empire is weakened - possibly more so than it has ever been - it'd be a perfect time for countries around the world to dredge up old grievances. Call it World War Festivus.

mistahtom: Well, quit falling for Russian propaganda.


The history of widespread Euroskepticism in the UK (particularly England) well and truly predates Russian internet propaganda. From a trade and general convenience perspective it made good sense for them to be in the common market and the EU but from a small-minded antsy perspective it also pissed them right off.

All countries have this in some way or another. Try arguing on Fark that the Second Amendment (particularly it's modern revision by SCOSA) is stupid and Americans have repeatedly proven they can't be trusted with guns so they should massively cut back on that. Some Americans agree with that sentiment but far more disagree and also object to having their stupidity pointed out by foreigners.

I make myself unpopular where I live when I point out that I really hate our flag, specifically the union jack in the corner. Small-minded pathetic Aussies pour out of the woodwork to shake their fists at me because they demand our country continue to tie itself to mother England's apron strings symbolically because they can't conceive of us being our own country free of those ties. It's kind of the opposite to Brexit when I think about it.

They'll increase the number of brown people having left the EU, more immigrants from south Asia will arrive than pre-Brexit. It's why some communities with large Asian populations voted to Leave, it's a family reunion opportunity for them.

So 6 years on from a 50-50 vote where "leave" could mean anything to anyone, despite a constant drumbeat of economic disaster and ruin from the media, and the least popular series of prime ministers in history, the "remain" side can not even muster 60%?

Yeah, this isn't exactly a "win" - and I say this as someone who joined the LibDems as a single issue remainer.

Doesn't mean anything when people keep electing a party that wants to be bound by it.

Stop pretending like the Brexit vote meant the Tories had no choice in the matter. They proceeded because they wanted to, not because they had to.

Is the survey significant?  It still looks 50/50 to me.
When crypto-PM announces austerity measures next month, I anticipate Northern Ireland to vote to rejoin the Republic, immediately also rejoining the EU.  Scotland might also vote to leave.
That means rejoining the EU could be a good deal for England and Wales, the "UK".

Give a rest laddy. 57% is huge, and in three months time it will be 60%. The Brexiteers are given to celebrate the Charge of the Light Brigade which was an unmitigated disaster, just like the Somme, Yrpes, Verdun, Dunkirk, market Garden.

Didn't London largely vote to remain, and it was all the areas around it?  Off to the googles...

They wanted it, so they should get it good and hard. Hit the gas, if there is a reversal at any time prior to the nation becoming a smoldering wasteland, Brexiteers will claim it just wasn't given the chance to work. That's probably why they pushed their Brexit goals back 40 years.

As fark's resident Brexit cheerleader loves to point out, Brexit is perfect and going along wonderfully.

I'm sure there are other folk in Britain that are just like him. So until those folks accept the reality of the situation nothing should change. If the UK is reduced to nothing but Britain and Wales with both with a cratered economy that is just the price they seem more than willing to pay for 'sovereignity' (or whatever)
