This is where I hope Ireland can jump straight in and sort out a trade deal. We are so f**ked right now since 41% of our agri-food and drink exports go to the UK. We still have to rely on the EU for subsidies but thats going to be cut down now without the UK's contribution so we will have to strike a deal with the UK without pissing off other EU countries who want to see Britain punished for leaving.
Yes, we do seem to enjoy that black stuff you call beer.
If the UK stops drinking Guinness, feel free to send whatever you cannot sell to my home address.
There's a lot of uncertainty at the moment.
None surrounding the English continuing to drink Guiness however.
For ....'s sake.
We thought if we got Brexit, we'd be almost certain to get Boris in 2020.
When Cameron stepped down, we thought, "Great, we'll now get Boris at the end of 2015, who can industriously fly around the world in an ambassadorial role, selling the UK and signing trade deals in Asia, Africa and elsewhere'.
Now we've likely got Gove, who is a backstabber with questionable leadership qualities; or Theresa May, who is pro-Remain (which hardly suggests she'll embrace the opportunities Brexit presents) and who is generally hostile towards liberty (EG the Snooper's Charter).
That's because, for all his many other failings, Boris isn't a complete idiot, and can see the writing on the wall - that, no matter what the Brexit campaign does from here, they're ....ed. He's just letting Gove take the bullet in his place.
Post above has got it in 1
I would be sat under a smug "CALLED IT!" sign if I:
A) Didn't still live here, and
B) Work in the sector Gove utterly destroyed with such ignorant malice
But a sense of justification remains in me, watching the champions of leave cower and flee realizing the amount of work the benefits they wanted would take. None of them want to be the fall guy, except someone who already got booted from NUT in a vote of no confidence, and a Remain voter "Taking back control" one despised unelected PM at a time.
Yup. The most optimistic picture I can think of would be Gove taking over, dragging his heels over enacting article 50, but doing it and making a decent job of negotiations; then in 2020, Boris steps in.
Why do you want Boris in?
Of the potential candidates for Tory leadership, I feel he is genuinely enthused by business and entrepreneurialism; that he is optimistic about Britain's prospects outside the EU and has demonstrated both his ability to win elections and act in an ambassadorial role.
He was also shown to be a pathological liar at various points in his career, not sure you'd want that.
Somebody hire Drew to run political campaigns somewhere!
Meet the Tories...
About sums it up.
I'm not deeply familiar with British politicians, but aren't we talking about the same guy who insulted the entire EU Parliament to their faces in a speech this week?
No, that's Nigel Farage of UKIP. Boris is the former Mayor of London.
And both have quit in a way or another. Boris has announced he will not run for PM position, although he was the top candidate, and a few hours ago, Nigel Farage resigned as UKIP leader!!!!! You'd think these 2 figures would have done that if the Brexit vote was a "NO".
Anyone care to explain?
