So, what are your plans for L-Day?

Party or Pining?

🤗 or 😭?

Nothing.

Brexit will have been cancelled by then and celebrations already done and gone.

Hoping that Olivia is right.

Otherwise, battening down the hatches, stocking up on perishables and tins, fuel, logs for the fire etc., and preparing for the worst.

Hopefully it won't be as bad as that, but there will certainly be some consequences that nobody expects, as we keep finding more and more problems as it is.

I genuinely fear for a civil war if it is cancelled to be honest.

That would go down about as well as a shit
Sandwich.💩🥪 🤮

@themueslicamel

It would be a civil war if it went ahead.

PS: don't agree. Give it six months. The shit show will be so ugly that the British people will begin to revolt against this travesty.

I expect to feel really sick. I also expect to see some MN Leavers crowing and crowing, on the day itself, and then going strangely quiet when the long queues of lorries waiting to cross the channel build up and when food prices start to rocket.

I will be in an EU country.

If planes are not allowed to fly in/out of the UK, I want to make sure I am somewhere I am happy to be and not exposed to civil unrest if things go wrong here.

My plan is to head out a week or so before 29 March 2019.

OliviaD68 Wed 29-Nov-17 19:15:36

@FickleMatter

Now that's a plan.

SoulStew Wed 29-Nov-17 19:19:02

I will be partying! Or, tbh, I’ll be on here, crowing.

Corcory Wed 29-Nov-17 20:07:03

Hubby and I will be opening a bottle of bubbly.

FickleMatter Wed 29-Nov-17 21:12:25

@OliviaD68 - you are welcome to join me at my Mum's! She is lovely, the food is good (and plentiful) and she has a sweet little dog. smile

OliviaD68 Wed 29-Nov-17 21:14:57

@FickleMatter

Count me in!

But my guess is you'll be here because this insanity will not go forth.

NotCornflakes Wed 29-Nov-17 21:16:51

Hopefully sitting at home in an independent Scotland still in the EU!

MedSchoolRat Wed 29-Nov-17 21:20:52

Trying to enjoy my extra year of employment -- which is due to planned Brexit. Trying not to feel bad for many colleagues who will have lost their jobs -- due to planned Brexit.

TheApprentice Wed 29-Nov-17 21:23:02

It will be my birthday. But I don't suppose I'll be celebrating......

AfunaMbatata Wed 29-Nov-17 21:27:15

Downing diazepam and wine .

GhostofFrankGrimes Wed 29-Nov-17 21:40:32

Kissing my Irish passport and proudly celebrating the fact I will still be a member of the EU family smile

lalalonglegs Wed 29-Nov-17 21:45:08

I wish I could be as optimistic as Olivia. But I think we will be in a transition arrangement/have obtained an extension to A50 so the full horror of this madness will have been kicked down the road for a while at least.

mumisnotmyname Wed 29-Nov-17 23:22:07

I will still be on our overseas assignment all being well, paying off our mortgage as fast as possible to give us as many options as possible in the future.

I suspect the U.K. will be in a half way house designed to protect us from the worst of the impact until it is too late to turn back.

I may buy a house in Scotland and hope that it manages to get back into the EU, but that is a longer term plan as is just giving up on returning to UK.

camel You're a Brexit supporter IIRC. Would you be preparing to fight/ picking up weapons if it was cancelled? Who exactly would you wage war against? The government? Remain voters (how would you identify them)? Chuka Umunna? Anna Soubry?

I think talk of civil war is sheer hyperbole, frankly. From what I've seen of Brexit supporters on social media, they're very fond of shouting and sloganeering, but don't actually do very much else.

OliviaD68 Thu 30-Nov-17 11:44:08

@twofingerstoEverything

Good point.

Indeed. Anyone remember how Farage's 'million people march' on Westminster went? I think three people and a dog turned up.

I agree with lala and mum about the halfway house/transition arrangement/extension to A50 scenario.

I think it just means a protracted and miserable death rather than an equally devastating but shorter shock, TBH.

I might have left the UK by then. I don't want to, but I don't see many reasons to stay.

Whereas our march in March mustered 100,000 despite various groups saying that it had been cancelled. I thought blow that, I have booked a place on the coach and am going, and obviously a lot of others did too.

themueslicamel Thu 30-Nov-17 21:14:11

I think 3 people and a fog turned up as leave won.

If a democratic process was illegally overthrown you might get a few more show up.

I would be there lawfully protesting too, and I suspect other might not be so law abiding.

Or dog even!
