Radically, Scotland's new stance is for ABEW (Anyone But not England or Wales) in EURO 2016 instead of the previous ABE.

ebassist doesn't have an intelligentsia. Not since rob bass was banned. There's now only team shitthink and team grouplib.

Every kid in Finland is taught the difference between Finnish and finish at a young age , so the joke is lame. The term is Fixit, anyway.

Not that it's very likely. The Finnish constitution says "Finland is a member of the European Union", and it's very difficult to change.

UK likely to lose S&P AAA credit rating

To quote The Thick of It again, "It's like the break up of The Beatles, During the fall of the Roman Empire, while fucking Jordan's getting divorced from that bloke."
A cheaper pound will make exports more attractive .

I suspect some EU countries will end up suffering more than the UK from this as the whole EU gets called into question.

A bigger concern I think will be the rush into an already overpriced dollar. Something will have to give.

Senior figures in remain campaign say they were 'hobbled' by No 10

Quote:
Infighting has erupted inside the defeated Britain Stronger in Europe campaign, with senior figures saying Conservatives on the campaign team repeatedly blocked it from making personal attacks on Michael Gove and Boris Johnson.

They said that, until near the end of the campaign, Downing Street was paralysed by fear of “blue on blue” attacks. Cameron is understood to have blocked an attack ad – a pastiche of the party’s 2015 general election poster which showed Ed Miliband tucked inside the breast pocket of Alex Salmond. The ad for which all the artwork was prepared showed Johnson inside the top pocket of Nigel Farage.

“We were hobbled in what we were allowed to do by No 10. They were sure they were going to win, and their chief interest was putting the Conservative party back together. There was a huge reluctance to attack Boris. A campaign that cannot personalise an attack is fighting with one hand behind its back,” said a senior campaign insider.

Now we just need the GBP to drop further so I can get some G&G shoes at a better price

In all seriousness, though, damn. The EU's already looking at a quick exit for the UK, hoping it will ease market problems.

Article 50 and the start of a political stalemate

Quote:
Not all problems have solutions. And the political problem now caused by the decisive Leave vote in the UK does not lend itself to any straightforward solution in practice.

Part of this is because there was never a good objective reason for the referendum in practice, and part is because the referendum did not have any legal effect. It was always an unnecessary referendum with no legal consequences. In legal terms, it was a glorified opinion poll.

But the lack of a solution comes primarily from the awkward legal situation in which the result now places the UK. To commence the procedure to leave the EU requires a notification under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. This contains the following provisions:

1. Any Member State may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements.
2. A Member State which decides to withdraw shall notify the European Council of its intention. In the light of the guidelines provided by the European Council, the Union shall negotiate and conclude an agreement with that State, setting out the arrangements for its withdrawal, taking account of the framework for its future relationship with the Union. That agreement shall be negotiated in accordance with Article 218(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. It shall be concluded on behalf of the Union by the Council, acting by a qualified majority, after obtaining the consent of the European Parliament.
3. The Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification referred to in paragraph 2, unless the European Council, in agreement with the Member State concerned, unanimously decides to extend this period.
4. For the purposes of paragraphs 2 and 3, the member of the European Council or of the Council representing the withdrawing Member State shall not participate in the discussions of the European Council or Council or in decisions concerning it.
A qualified majority shall be defined in accordance with Article 238(3)(b) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
5. If a State which has withdrawn from the Union asks to rejoin, its request shall be subject to the procedure referred to in Article 49.
You can see Article 50(3) imposes a hard two-year deadline on the exit process. Unless all the other Member States agree to extend the deadline, the one that sends the notification is out in two years. If there is a negotiated settlement that is a bonus for all concerned, but it is not a precondition.

It would appear that no UK politician, including those who headed the Leave campaign, is in any rush to press the “red button” of the Article 50 notification. The now departing Prime Minister David Cameron says it is up to a successor. One likely successor, Boris Johnson, says there is no haste. The red button will be positioned behind a locked door in Downing Street with a protective case placed on top. It is not going to get pressed by accident, if it is ever going to get used.

And what will happen without the button being pressed may be a political phoney war. It may well be that nothing happens at all: that the referendum result just hangs there, and things carry on an institutional and supranational basis much as before.

And there are events which could make it plausible that the notification button is never pressed. A second referendum — so the UK can vote the “right way” — may take place, after some new “deal”. Or the European Union may itself fall apart, as other Member States jostle for position, or even manoeuvre for their own or others’ departure.

The referendum result was of immense political importance, but there was no framework for the Leave result to have any direct knock-on effects. So there is now a period of waiting, where the various actors involved face off and try ever so hard not to blink.

In the meantime, the laws of the UK and EU are unaffected. The legal situation is the same today as it was yesterday. Nothing has been repealed. And even if the Article 50 notification is made, there are unlikely to be any fundamental legal changes until 2018 at the earliest.

Nothing can force the UK to press the notification button, and nothing can force the EU to negotiate until it is pressed. It is entirely a matter for a Member State to decide whether to make the notification and, if so, when. In turn, there is no obligation on the EU to enter into negotiations until the notification is made. There is therefore a stalemate. If this were game of chess, a draw would now be offered.

I dropped some macroeconomics basics about this on some Facebook ignoramus earlier today. My post was liked by my college economics professor who is now the dean of the school of business of some midwest university. I felt quite smugly self satisfied.
