If we get a Brexit and it is Ignored by the MP's..

Expect a revolution in this country!

The people will lose the plot in my opinion..



Don't bet on it.

Game shows and reality TV have become more important to the populus of most countries than revolutions that demands that one leaves one's place in front of the TV. They will fiercely share something on their facebook walls for a day or two, but that will be about it.

Apparently even if the country votes overwhelmingly to leave and the people expect our politicians to act accordingly as this is a democracy, It is unlikely to happen. 


Yep, and you'll probably have to share the Union with Turkey too. Not good.

moneyweek.com...

The article makes it clear that our politicians have no intention of allowing us to leave and they can tell us the vote isn't legal or binding on them. .


IS THIS TRUE? Even though the citizens of the United Kingdom have spoken today, and voted to leave the European Union, it's not going to actually happen? The departure negotiations will be bogged down and drag on for many years?

Technically it might be true, however, DC did say that the result would stand. Once he's declared to EU that he wants to invoke Article 50, then we'll be given 2 years to sort out the leave process, which would start with the UK govt repealing an act from 1972, this would need to go through parliament, so yes they could decide not to repeal that act.

basically the UK govt could do whatever they like, however it seems unlikely that they would.

they could engineer some other, more urgent or important crisis, such that negotiations to leave drag out longer and longer to the point where people forget that we're supposed to be leaving, and our time limit runs out, then I guess we'd have to have another referendum to see if we still want to leave or not.
which might happen if it stalls long enough that a another general election has happened, and we have a new govt, who don't want us to leave...?

anything's possible right? they make the rules, they can break them with impunity.

if other EU states have referenda, and vote to leave, then the EU might break up before we've finalised our exit.
we might end up with new trade agreements with other European countries, outside of an EU trade agreement.

interesting times ahead!

Cameron has said the he will be resigning in October to leave the change to his successor.
Doesn't this mean that it is likely the vote will stand and the UK really will leave?

Thanks for the thoughtful reply, CrastneyJPR. Let's hope that those leaders who were against Britain exiting the European Union don't cause a lot of trouble and delay things. If Blue Ajah is correct, Cameron's willing departure sends a strong positive signal to those whose initial inclination is to throw legal and procedural arrows at the process of leaving the E.U..
