It's really quite comical how polarised this discussion is becoming.
One half of it is polarised. The half that is insisting that Armageddon is about to befall the UK. It is ironic that many of that half are claiming intellectural supremacy in the midst of demonstrating anything but.
There will be a reasonable conclusion to all this; there are too many people with too many interests in that for it not to happen.
So, the UK will be in the EEA, or some bastardised form of it and there will be some form of common market for goods and labour.
Ironically, on an economic level, ideally I would want to remain within the EU, but with substantial reforms to the political structures of the EU and a contraction of the size of both the bureaucracy associated with the EU and the number of laws imposed by the EU on member states. That is something that more than a few within continental Europe seem to want as well.
Unfortunately, I don't see an avenue to achieve that reform without a shock to the EU system. Again, I didn't vote, if I did, I would *probably* have voted Brexit - with the hope of calls for reform spreading across the continent, leading to a real reform and eventually to a second referendum on whether to stay or go.
I'm annoyed Cameron has quit, although understand his reasoning. Gove is a Tory-boy c**t. May is an evil, evil, evil w***h. Boris is an idiot. If it had to be one of those 3, it would have to be Boris. But by god thats a bad choice to have.
Farage is beneath contempt and is one step away from being an open racist. If there is an absolute silver lining to all this - hopefully this removes the need for their political existence so then that snake and the racist xenophobic UKIP in general crawl away under the rock they've slithered from and never darken us with their presence again.
