Logical question, not that anything at all has been accomplished, but still.....the votes are in and Britain, temporarily, has voted to exit the European Union. Temporarily...not temporarily the exit stuff; but temporarily the "Britain" part, because Scotland and Northern Ireland voted remain. So it's England and Wales, or soon will be. Cameron and Osborne and Johnson and Corbyn and Farage will have accomplished what the Scots couldn't, or didn't want to, the dissolution of their union with England.
And Northern Ireland? What was that Hudson said in Aliens? "That's great, this is really fuckin' great, man. Now what the fuck are we supposed to do? We're in some pretty shit now, man!"
So much for Good Fridays. Maybe Gerry Adams can build a fire, sing a couple of songs.
So what's next? For starters-- a campaign for a referendum. Are you serious? "So nice they tried it twice"? This one takes advantage of the disorder now gripping the ruling parties while at the same time puts the truth, and the lie, to the "reclaim our government" bullshit of the exiteers. This one is for Britain, or whatever assumes its place: Leave NATO.
Withdraw from NATO. No US military bases in Britain. And more importantly, you want to control your borders? Then withdraw all British military forces currently active in other countries; close all British military bases outside the "borders" of Britain.
And then? How about a referendum to abolish Thatcher's Nationality Act? Keep the home fires burning.
