    France and French show courage today.
    What a huge margin 65,1% for Macron!

    Excellent idea to have a #fuckBrexit day in May.

At the end of the day, it's the UK and the current government that is messing it up because you have Bozos in power, not the EU that is doing what it has to do.
    The EU is using bullying tactics with leaked stories of a huge divorce bill, and stories about how they will make it tough for the UK etc etc. This is not tabloid talk, it's from the horse's mouth. Of course it's understandable because if the UK gets a good deal then what is stopping other countries to want to leave and get a good deal? Think about it. I am glad Theresa May is standing tough. I hope she does so after elections. She could just be talking tough now to get votes, which I hope is not the case.

    British people are very robust to blackmail. The more the EU tries to make it tough, the more Brexiteers are recruited.

    Believing that this were ever feasible is proper tinfoil hat territory, it's just fear mongering of the highest order by tabloids and 19th century throwbacks like Jacob Rees-Mogg (ironically and amazingly, these are the same people who use the term "Project Fear" for Remainers, the absolute hypocrisy is disgusting)...

    ...and the net result is cutting off your nose to spite your face.
    What do you mean? It is happening before your eyes. Single currency, removal of borders, European army, common market, common employment laws. What else do you want as evidence of a federal Europe?

    I am sorry behrooz jaan but the only country that has bullied and constantly bullies Europe since the 1940s have been Russia and then United Kingdom.

    at least Russia has oil, coal and wood to last for centuries, UK has nothing but fucking fish and chips

    UK is the 5th biggest economy in the world. The EU receives substantial amount of its budget from the UK. It is one of the most attractive places for immigrants to come which is evidence by the camps in Calais. Why don't they stay anywhere else in Europe? Britain has always been an attractive place for immigrants, probably because compared to other EU countries, taxes are low and businesses are cheaper in terms of revenue.

    well, they are not getting a good deal and they will definitely not get a good deal at the expense of Europeans.

    And yet folks who still think Britain's huge economy will stay huge when its value to the US-Europe dynamic for companies, banks, political entities (as the kind of balancing "guy in the middle") disappears! and disappear it will, don't doubt it. EU is a corrupt, monolithic organisation - but it isn't going to go anywhere.

    There are a lot of people who have odd delusions about Britain's power and clout, but I've never met anyone of Iranian origin (zero/first/second gen immigrant) who believes in Brexit. Genuinely intrigued about Behrooz, unless he is trolling.

    Even the ultra pro-Brexit nationalist tabloids (who never reported like this before) are starting to show what's going to happen to Britain's HUGE ECONOMY

    If you do, please can you back this up with evidence.

    Dr.

    I am not trolling. I am serious. I know many Iranians who voted for Brexit, also many non-EU immigrants like Indians and Pakistanis who voted for Brexit.

    There are scare stories everyday. I don't buy into them. I guess time will tell. I believe Britain will be much better in years to come thanks to a clean hard Brexit. The EU is struggling with mass unemployment and there is absolutely no way it will have less challenges than Britain. Just wait and see, we'll be here.

    what does that signify? I mean, Iranians and pakistanis voting for brexit ?
    98% of iranians voted for handing over control to the corrupt decadent clergy. in addition, i am pretty sure around 65% iranians voted for Trump. i just fail to see how is that related to the discussion above? could you clarify please

    Well you live over there so you know more detail and you are on ground level every day but there are no stories about banks moving their headquarters back to Brussels or Paris or Frankfurt.

    Please recognize that hundreds of thousands of brits work In France and Germany. once you kick out your germans they will kick out their brits and it might balance out so you will still be faced with the same unemployment problems in UK with one exception.

    The hundred thousands european jobs that existed in London, Mancs, MerseySide and also down south will be gone.

    Do you buy into a round earth, or that that unicorns are a myth?

    I'm just wondering, because if is interesting that you call banks shutting down shop, tens of thousands of bankers moving to Frankfurt and Paris, American banks moving out of London "stories"

    You didn't give me any evidence apart from "just wait and see, we'll be there". I guess that's what some people said before the 1979 Islamic Revolution of Iran. Just vague comments of "have some faith", "believe" are the same vague stances which religious and cult leaders use to convince stupider people into drinking whichever flavour of Kool-Aid is available. Evidence, please.
