#9 - Best part is the fact the EU justsaid if Scotland leave the UK…  [+] (13 replies) 06/26/2016 on Suptigorg Puirn Ytagl +4

Oh yeah, it's just wonderful.

We get dragged out of the EU unwillingly just a year and a half after being told the only way we could remain in it is by staying in the UK.

Now we're stuck tied on a sinking ship and the one thing that might salvage our economy, that might respect the will of the Scottish people, might be denied to us.

It's fucking excellent.

bit early to call sinking ship, most likely Britain will be fine, with an agreement for the common market, like Norway or Switzerland.

The EU needs the exports its send to Britain, its accounts for 16% of all their exports...

So don't be a pussy and throw your towel in the ring just because the status quo has changed.

Yeah, an agreement for the common market that will mean we also have to agree to freedom of movement. Old Nige wouldn't be too happy about that, nor would his loyal followers or the thousands of racists that have emerged from the woodwork to shout at foreigners to "pack their bags and fuck off", and post signs saying "No more Polish vermin" through their letterboxes.

well Switzerland have access to common market, and a limited freedom of movement deal and a no right to settle deal... so not too shabby, compromises must be made, but not too many

Not really, the Swiss people voted for it but the EU aren't happy. They've refused to negotiate with them and have threatened to suspend other bilateral agreements because of it.

Brexit will have just complicated things further. I doubt very much that they'll concede now that they know Britain will be watching their answer.

We have no idea how things go, but the onus is purely on the EU, with the idea of leaving so prevalent in other countries, the EU has to form a contingency incase this happens, making concessions to keep a former member in the bloc, rather than pushing them away will;

a, ease the tension of an over bearing central EU government to the countries tempted to leave

b, bring the UK within arms length of where it once was, and consolidate the EU mandate of peace through an economy based convenant

Yeah which means Scotland would have to give up the pound and take the Euro. So when they realise that, the second independence referendum is going to go to shit. The Scottish won't give up their Legal Tender, the closest they've got to an independent currency, to take on Frog money and tie themselves to Greece.

I thught it was going to take the UK 2 years to officially leave the EU so wouldnt they have 2 years to break away from the UK?
#13 - anon (06/26/2016) [-]
Oh no, we just have to wait a little longer.

Spain has already said they'd block Scotland from joining. Pretty sure another country did too.

Yeah, but then they have to re apply from scratch which can take years before they get accepted
