    Wish they'd hurry up already and let us get on with dealing with whatever the consequences are.

    Maybe we could tow our island off the coast of France and allow the UK to merge with the US?

    Not yet, I'm sure that will change as the date approaches.

    They'll huff and puff but I can't see them leaving. Even if they did it could well be a boon for us as the only English speaking member of the bloc.

    Sky News just lumped us in with Britain last week as the (geographic) British Isles floated off to its new location under Iceland. There's no escaping the Big Brother.

    I can. I'd be surprised if they didn't leave, actually. I think the campaign for leaving will be a very nationalistic 'rule brittannia' type one, and that it will gain a lot of traction.

    A lot of people, happily ignorant to the facts about what consequences may come were they to leave, will vote to go their own way.

    I do also agree with you that it won't necessarily be all bad for Ireland either.

    And if they do pull out I reckon their lives should be made as difficult as can be, in terms of free trade, freedom of movement between countries, etc.

    Wouldn't it be great if they had to apply for a visa to come to Ireland. We could get rid of stag parties in Temple Bar in one fell swoop.

    BRITS OUT (of Europe)

    Not true, eligibility for the Eurovision is not determined by EU membership.

    I can't see the referendum passing, but if it does I am curious about the ramifications for the statelet to our north.

    nicola sturgeon wants all four parts of the UK to have to vote in favour for it to happen

    which could provide a handy way for cameron to pass the blame if it all looks like turning into a giant disaster and he needs to back out of letting the english decide

    I don't think Cameron thinks it'll pass as it would probably put a significant impediment on London's ability to be the major centre of global finance, especially if the rest of the EU decides to be a dick about an exited UK.

    Combined vote for Tories/UKIP = 49.5% :eek::eek:

    However, not all Tories are anti-Europe, not even sure a majority are. Also, it's hard to figure what the turn out would be like in the referendum. Also have to factor in whether all the other major UK parties will present a united front against British exist or not.

    I can see Cameron "striking a deal" that will mean the Tories will campaign for a no.
