Wales got the most help from the EU, and still we voted to leave!
yyyyeahhh, this is what i hear from a lot of welsh people. :( but a lot of them have changed their minds about it retroactively, of course, just like everyone else. really hoping for another referendum now because everyone's eyes have been opened at this point and all.
As for Welsh independence, that's not really a good idea. We're too small to function independently, especially outside the EU.
this is probably true for like... all of britain. scotland would be screwed as well and i don't know
enough about ireland to say for sure but i can't imagine them doing so hot either.
anyway yeah this whole deal's got a lot of people fired up!! i
think it's a great time to go back to england. maybe my euro will actually be worth
something this time. i'm sorry to see cameron go, though. (mfw
) honestly i hope this all turns out. i'm personally optimistic about it and i think everyone freaking out should just shut up and see what happens as it's too soon to tell for sure, but the eu has been sort of pushy and the leave campaign has been dodgy and it all is a bit of a mess at the moment.
but i'm confident the value of the pound will go back up! everyone knew it was going to drop, and the decline has stabilised within the projected range, so like... this was forecasted. i think people are aware that it's the result of initial freakout and will start investing in british business in hopes that the economy will fix itself and then Whoa everything is cool again. maybe. we'll see. honestly i just want to believe something good will come of this all (although i'm still crossing my fingers for another referendum).
oh murkrow posted here too!
Anyway I think unless the government calls off leaving the EU, Scottish independence is inevitable. I was rooting for Scotland last time, but this time I just hope I can move there first.
i agreed with this initially, but like... scotland doesn't even have its own feet to stand on. it's a distinctly british country and i don't think it'll last by itself. :( independence sounds like a Bad Idea to me, even with potential eu support.
Not sure about Northern Ireland though.
I'm quite disappointed that Wales voted to leave. I was on holiday the week before the referendum in Pembrokeshire, and I remember seeing signs at the beaches and such saying "funded by the EU", and I wasn't even actively looking for them. And they voted leave. Wales is incredibly reliant on EU funding because it's seriously screwed over by Westminster.
yeah again!! i don't understand all the welsh backlash against the eu. i mean i can see maybe
england i guess because they're fairly self-sufficient but i mean... why wales??? they're being helped out massively by the eu, along with scotland, and like... i don't get it, really. the eu never had any profoundly negative impacts on wales, and it quite clearly had positive ones. what's the root of all the anger?
As for everyday life. I think things will get more expensive. Unemployment will rise, maybe not drastically but it will rise.
but... everything is already so expensive for foreigners. :( i mean this is a pretty obvious side-effect i guess but :(((
Wales and Cornwall will fall into the ocean.
not before i visit! nooooooo
