I'm really curious how Gibraltar is gonna work itself out.


Spain will make demands and the UK will tell them to go shit in their collective hat.

And all the Europeans living and working in the UK.

My own shift co-worker is Spanish, and 90% of the maintenance team are Polish, Spanish or Brazilian.

Likely, as we're being idiots.

Unfortunately for Gibraltar, there is a LOT of cross-border activity which will have to be shut down now.  If Spain holds out, for joint sovereignty or nothing...well, Gibraltans voted to Remain for a very good reason, that their economy will be up shit creek without free movement into Spain.  They'd have as strong an argument as Scotland or Northern Ireland for sorting out their own arrangements, and due to the unusual legal standing of Gibraltar as a UK territory, could even possibly make them stick.

I'm sort of looking forward to everyone suddenly realising we're going to have to untangle 40+ years of laws, legislations and working practices and rebuild them from scratch and it's going to be as messy as fuck.

With many a fuckup and loophole to be inevitable.

As for violence, England for sure. I've got a personal bet on wigan but it's fucking ugly in Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and bits of the north Wales coast that I know about. Expect Bradford, Birmingham and Rochester are getting the same.

The reason I'm betting Wigan is that it has by far the most England flags hanging out I've ever seen in one town. London included. The graffiti also expressed dissatisfaction with non white residents quite strongly.

I do need to take this moment and give a shout out to Scotland for being, well, Scotland.

The thing is, too many people view their vote as a means by which to piss off the other side.  And then they are shocked that real things happen.

This is pretty much exactly how Arizona operates.

QG, could you have a play with this? Suspect it will be relevant forever.

Well Wales is financially fucked now, without that EU investment.

Everything I'm seeing on the news is depressing me more and more right now.  I've said it often, but I really mean it now - this country is fucked.

I'm even considering going back to Australia.  That's how bad this is.

Cornwall is fucking doomed.  They voted 56/43 to leave and THEN they want promises that the UK government will make up the missing investments.

London, meanwhile, is trying to organise its own secession movement.

I'm not 100% on how serious this is, but I've seen references to petitioning Sadiq Khan to declare London a breakaway state or of having London join Scotland.

Some yahoos in Texas are getting secession boners from all this, as well.

Well, I mean, they always have them, they're just pointing at them more vigorously now.

You got outplayed, Texans.  And by non-Americans, no less.

You talk about secession all the time.  We didn't even care about it until the election last year, and we were told it would fuck up the world economy, and we still did it.

Texas: all mouth, no pants.  Hence the vigorous secession boners in plain sight.

Some Canadian bitch just posted that the only people this matters to are the British, and that Canadians and Americans need to STFU.

So, I gave her links to the stock market.

Texans have never been anything but mouth.  They think they're "the west", but they're basically a bunch of trailer parks in Southern Illinois.

Hmm, that would be the kind of turn of events that would force me to reconsider my current position in opposition to that southern border wall plan that keeps cropping up
