Norway and a few others will hopefully take the plunge

Hopefully some of the other main contributors of the EU will now have their own referendum.

There are a lot of disillusioned people in Europe.
People who like us, didn't expect the EU to get so big, and have to support so many poorer recent members.

Hopefully the whole flawed sorry mess will now collapse.

You know Norway isn't in the EU, right?!

reallybadidea Fri 24-Jun-16 08:08:17

Brexiters are so well informed aren't they?

That's what I'm hoping too. Absolutely horrified by the result but desperately clutching at straws and wondering if this might be the beginning of something better.

Sorry, obviously not Norway but apparently there is some appetite in other EU countries for an in our referendum

Norway isn't in the EU. Well done op, showing how intelligent and well versed in the EU many leavers are.

FFS! The ignorance is astounding!

Yes, I'd say loads of countries are looking at the shitstorm about to befall the UK and wanting a bit of that action.

ApocalypseSlough Fri 24-Jun-16 08:13:43

It'd be funny, except it isn't because it was giving uninformed little Englanders a say which has got us into this mess.

Unlike a lot of British DH and are able to move if when the shit hits the fan which is the only positive from this result.

er, that is one poster remember

When I have stated that I was not interested in being part of a supranational state not one Remain voter I spoke to has even known what I was talking about.

Switzerland aren't in either and they seem to be doing ok.

DoinItFine Fri 24-Jun-16 08:42:28

Albania aren't in. How are they doing?

DiggersRest Fri 24-Jun-16 08:51:16

Switzerland were never in though. This is different.

There does seem to be serious commentary on moves towards a referendum in The Netherlands, and perhaps Denmark.

And then there's the ongoing difficulties in the southern eurozone.

So, yes, it's possible that the stresses on the EU will become excessive.

The ignorance confused
And these people have the vote.

General election on Sunday in Spain. Podemos is very anti-austerity.

ChasedByBees Fri 24-Jun-16 09:08:03

Amazing knowledge of Europe there.

ghostyslovesheep Fri 24-Jun-16 09:18:27

Brilliant op - I hope that was a joke!

Norway by the way had free movement of labour as part of its trade agreement with Europe so if you voted leave to 'take back our borders' good luck!

Gartenzwerg Fri 24-Jun-16 09:21:27

Savagebeauty - are you suggesting that only people as clever or enlightened as you should be able to vote ?

ghostyslovesheep Fri 24-Jun-16 09:22:56

People should understand the consequences of their vote
