    Wish Clivex was still here, so he could held to account for his hopelessly optimistic (some may say utterly fu*cking useless) predictions, as to how it would play-out.

    Maybe this dig in-absentia will flush him out of the shadows?

    100% guaranteed if we leave the EU.......and I would likely campaign vigourously for it myself, in the hope that we would be re-admitted to the EU, in the reasonably short-term.

    Grassy and Sturgeon, all at one, together. Who'd have thought it.

    He's just made a somewhat snide reference to TH on TRF, on 'what does ITV mean' thread, so feel sure your Airbus post has needled him

    Shame he hasn’t popped back up, Drone. There’s no better man for staunchly defending an indefensible position, in the face of overwhelming evidence which repudiates his argument.

    I genuinely miss such pointless exchanges.

    I am firmly anti-independence but even I might vote for it if we were guaranteed membership of the EU for Scotland.

    But it would have to be a cast-iron guarantee.

    Scotland, I have read, would have to renegotiate their membership as a separate entity, so who knows what that might cost in terms of monetary and other terms.

    I don’t think there would be any cast-iron guarantees about Scotland’s re-entry to the EU, but I do think that an application would be viewed very favourably, given Scotland would have been extracted from the EU, entirely against its will. It is a wholly different dynamic to a new country requesting to join the Union, and I’d like to think it would be viewed in that light, in other European capitals.

    If Brexit comes to pass, the United Kingdom is finished anyway. England are effectively stripping every Scot of their European citizenship (and all the benefits that are derived from it) - something which is an order of magnitude greater in terms of the outrage it has generated up here, then using Scotland as a testing ground for the Poll Tax, for the example.

    We, like many in England, can see the writing on the post-Brexit wall, and there is absolutely zero appetite to go down, tethered to the Little Englander ship. As our World Cup record has shown over the years, we are perfectly capable of spectacular failure all by ourselves, thanks very much.

    The TH poll was Stay 27 Leave 20. Presumably these votes were cast before the referendum

    Would it be possible to have a new poll to see how that 47 - and others - would vote now?

    Six years to the day since the vote.

    Almost 2 years since we 'left' left.

    Some of the arguments on this thread have proven accurate - others less so (some of mine included).

    Several Member casualties along the way.

    Grass's considered analysis: Brexit is an even bigger shi*tshow than I feared, and the Tories are even more right-wing than I ever thought possible.

    Can an Irish person please adopt me.

    Tory right continues to believe we can show those Johnny foreigners a thing or two despite mounting evidence to the contrary. Interesting, the Tories have stolen Labour’s clothes with all the Covid and energy costs handouts and borrowed (printed) shed loads of money much to the chagrin of the same Tory right.
