    You do the math.

    If it's a good idea it sells itself.

    Yes, leaving the failing EU superstate project as a net contributor is a good idea, just a shame the UK government are so inept they make remaining seem the saner option, for now.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Of course the Irish could have a 3rd referendum and decide to leave again. Now the money stream has dried up even more chance.

    Not so far fetched as under the Good Friday agreement a poll in Ireland and Northern Ireland can be called at anytime to determine the future place of the state, whether in the UK or part of united Ireland which Sinn Fein have asked for
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    All of Ireland should be controlled by the UK. Then Calais.

    The first referendum on the Treaty of Lisbon held on 12 June 2008 was rejected by the Irish electorate, by a margin of 53.4% to 46.6%, with a turnout of 53%.[5]

    The second referendum on the Treaty of Lisbon held on 2 October 2009 and the proposal was approved by 67.1% to 32.9%, with a turnout of 59%.[6]
