I too would welcome a "Leave" victory, but for different reasons. The EU only makes realistic concessions when faced with a No vote in referendums. The Danish got substantial concessions after rejecting the Maastricht Treaty in a referendum in 1992 and the Irish got some concessions rejecting the Treaty of Nice (not a nice treaty) in 2000. In both cases, the No vote was in the region of 53-55%.ryuzaki wrote:Maybe the best result then would be for the UK to vote out, and the EU to ditch the proposals. Then I move to Scotland which becomes independent and re-joins the EU.

Perhaps we could have further debates after your reading.

Yes, been reading, NI is a Province, Wales is a Principality, not sure of the difference.Obie wrote:Wales is not a province . Northern Ireland may well be.
Of all the nations that makes up UK only Northern Ireland has never been a nation of its own.
Wales was a cletic nation until it was annexed by England in the 16th Century by the English and incorporated into England, but it once was an independent nation.
The United Kingdom does not have the concept of provinces.Obie wrote:Wales is not a province . Northern Ireland may well be.
It was for one day in 1922, 7th December, a part of the Irish Free State. The Irish Free State from 1922 to 1936 was a Dominion and not a Republic. Its status between 1936 and 1949 is unclear/debatable. Only in 1949 did it unequivocally become a Republic.Wanderer wrote:Also Southern Ireland was part of the UK until 1922, and if I remember my history lessons NI became part of the Republic and was also part of Ireland for three days in 1922, before they partitioned off. Boxing Day rings a bell.
