    And now Spain is calling for co-sovereignty with England for Gibraltar. So the odds are getting better each day that Britain is going to lose at least one of its territories, if not all three: Scotland, Northern Ireland and now Gibraltar.

    Sounds like you couldn't have done a better job breaking up your country if you'd tried. Well done. Rule Britannia!

    @Juliet: Can you explain to me how this all started in the first place? I heard that Cameron didn't want to leave, but that he called for the referendum? Why?

    They've been wanting to get their hands on Gibraltar for years. This is just an excuse.

    Britain won't lose 3 territories as there is only 2 England and Wales. It's the uk will lose 2. You'll have to read back to understand the whole Britain, Great Britain and the U.K.

    Because he tried to reform the eu but they said no so he called for a referendum wether or not we should be in it thinking we all say stay but it backfired.

    My mistake: The UK will lose three territories. My point stays the same.

    They're calling for a joint sovereignty but doesn't mean they will get it we can still reject it.

    Mm-hm. Ever studied the American Civil War? When Virginia seceded from the United States, West Virginia broke away from Virginia and joined the States. Virginia couldn't stop them then.

    I don't think any part of Gibraltar would break away from itself because it's only got a tiny population of 30,000.

    Outraged right now that "bregret" is a thing. Talking to someone at a gathering yesterday, the subject of the referendum came up. They said they voted leave, and I asked why.

    Their response: "I didn't think it would happen so I just did."

    People like THIS is why my country will be in shambles. :roll:

    I think it was IckabodSchrek that brought up a current affairs test to allow people to vote. I whole-heartedly agree. Maybe a common sense test also?

    Just saw on the news that it's possible Scotland could veto the UK decision to leave the EU, it's getting interesting!

    I saw a lady on the news say her whole family voted to leave to make a point that they weren't happy with the way things were being done at the moment, but as soon as they saw the leave side had actually won on Friday morning they realised what a mistake they'd made because they didn't think it would happen. Morons.

    Basically during the general elections last year a racist (although they'd claim not to be) party called UKIP were starting to do pretty well and gaining lots of support, and one of the things they said they'd do is to hold a referendum. To try and get the UKIP supporters to vote for him instead (because UKIP don't actually know anything about running a country, just about slagging off immigrants) Cameron said if he won he would hold a referendum too, and when he won he kind of had to stick to that promise :?

    It sorta sounds like it was meant as a bluff that got called, and then went through. Wow, that is just amazing if so.

    That would get shot down right away. At the end of the day it's down to our government to implement it. Scotland don't have the powers to veto it.

    They were hoping that the remain would win it then were surprised to see it lose so they come up with stupid replays. If they didn't think they would win why did the for in the first place.

    It goes back to before the elections last year. As I said earlier that he wanted to reform the eu and they wouldn't do Cameron wanted to do a referendum on the eu. It was put on hold till after the general elections to see if he got back in power then set about is agenda to sort out the referendum.
