There is a petition calling for London to gain independence from the UK and remain as part of the EU:

London Independence

It's an unlikely event but it would be interesting to discuss the ramifications of such a move.

I'm guessing as a first move, Barking & Dagenham would want to be part of Essex as they were majority Leave.

Everyone's lost the plot.

😂 what?

Will it ever stop

MaterofDragons Sat 25-Jun-16 12:36:48

oops, I didn't see the Referendum topic. MNHQ can you please move this?

Just5minswithDacre Sat 25-Jun-16 13:35:13

I suppose it does make an interesting thought experiment.

I need to stop laughing before I can fully engage with it, though smile

Have you reported the thread to MNHQ to get it moved?

MaterofDragons Sat 25-Jun-16 15:09:48

Yes, I've reported it. I'm guessing they're probably a bit overwhelmed at the moment.

I think so smile

Ok. Hypothetically all the petitions work and a vote is held again, at great expense.
Then what?

Nothing changes. The majority vote to leave the EU.. What more petitions to do it all over again. And again. And again? That will really help all future negotiations with the world.

Remain wins.. The other side are fucked off and start countless petitions to have a re-vote. So the cycle continues. The world looks on laughing, negotiations affected.

Ok so finally we stop with the petitions and revotes. It's now the GE. The Mickey mouse party wins. Everyone else is fucked off, so starts the petitions. Expensive re-election. Yet again the cycle continues.

People really are losing the plot. I'm shocked that I share my country with so many hysterical weirdos.

Oh for godsake. Do people really not have a single clue?
