BREXIT and subsequent events

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

No worries, it'a just a crowd control measure, shuffle a few office chairs, give the Brits some time with a worthless currency, so they can't go on vacation or eat tenderloin steaks every weekend.

They will slowly 'get it' and vote themselves back in with some fancy sideline measure in a few years, and probably with the help of an onslaught of celebrity support. I mean , whatever Jason Statham believes, so do I, cause he's a really cool Brit.

There's An Interesting New Theory On What Will Actually Happen Post-EU Referendum

Fuck knows what's going on with the EU referendum result - on Thursday the people spoke, with 17.4 million people voting for Britain to leave the European Union.

Since then the Conservatives' David Cameron has resigned and the Labour Party has gone into disarray.

Now a comment has been posted to the Guardian's website, with an interesting theory on what the results of the referendum could actually mean, and it's exactly the opposite of what you might expect

To leave the EU Britain would need to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, announcing their intention to leave, however the theory says this may never happen.

The comment reads: "If Boris Johnson looked downbeat yesterday, that is because he realises that he has lost.

"Perhaps many Brexiters do not realise it yet, but they have actually lost, and it is all down to one man: David Cameron.

"With one fell swoop yesterday at 9:15 am, Cameron effectively annulled the referendum result, and simultaneously destroyed the political careers of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and leading Brexiters who cost him so much anguish, not to mention his premiership.

"How?

"Throughout the campaign, Cameron had repeatedly said that a vote for leave would lead to triggering Article 50 straight away. Whether implicitly or explicitly, the image was clear: he would be giving that notice under Article 50 the morning after a vote to leave. Whether that was scaremongering or not is a bit moot now but, in the midst of the sentimental nautical references of his speech yesterday, he quietly abandoned that position and handed the responsibility over to his successor.

What do you think is going to be with property markets in the UK and the EU? I believe in the slight fall of prices in England and Spain. Spain will suffer a wane of demand for real estate from British buyers who were extremely active in this market. And in London the weak pound will play its part to attract new foreign investors (according to brokers' forecasts https://tranio.com/united-kingdom/news/ ... e-eu_5152/) The real estate market in Britain may even benefit from heightened foreign interest

I don't think they want any more "foreign interest" buying up property in London. The housing shortage is already a big complaint by Londoners. The economists are predicting a recession, which would slow construction. I find your article a little on the optimistic side.
As for the rest, who knows what will happen next. It doesn't seem like they've got a plan, except to wing it. :popcorn:

If there is an amusing side to the referendum, it's been the number of people who say they've changed their minds, or that they voted OUT, but they didn't think it would matter, or it was only to get rid of Cameron. Well that certainly worked, and now they might end up with Boris. :mrgreen:
Or those Brits that don't want Europeans to live in Britain, but who expect to continue living in Europe under the same conditions as before, like good old Andy here:
The visa question is the main topic of concern for these homeowners abroad, who wonder if they will still be able to own their homes and reside overseas in the EU with the same ease as they have been doing until now. This is the main worry for Andy Sherlock, a pro-Brexit homeowner in Portugal, as he explained: “I think Britain should leave of course, just as long as I can live in my home in Portugal.
LOL.That sounds fair.

The Scots are getting screwed by both the EU and the UK. Nobody cares about their opinions.

O GOD HOW SAD (Waugh)

Actually, even Hove in Sussex has payday loaners, betting shops and a surprising number of excellent off-licenses.

You can buy a renovated fisherman's cottage for 600,000 pounds sterling, too
