    Constitutional lawyers have already said, tbf, that brexit may require all devolved regions agreeing to leave
    Carwyn Jones has said on this issue that he would not try to veto Brexit.

    I'm still annoyed at brexit but have conceded the fact that it has to happen now. The options are brexit or brexit with Farrage as PM... still hoping for Scotland to leave and join the EU and the reunification of Ireland!!!

    Same. It's now trying to make the best out of a bad situation.

    Just go take your meds, Farage will not be PM, nor was he going to be; about as likely as a reunified independent Ireland and independent Scotland in the EU

    Farage as PM isn't an option on the table as far as I'm aware...

    I'm fairly certain Scotland will leave, I doubt Northern Ireland will although I do fear violence may ensue if they don't get the border poll.

    If Westminster overrules the referendum do you really think that all those out voters won't turn to UKIP?

    See above.

    I'm very scared about NI violence especially if the boarder closes. If that happens the government should give them the boarder poll.

    Some will, most won't, and it wouldn't happen anyway

    I imagine I'm a bit more interested in international politics than most in here.. but ah well:

    Exit polls in the Spanish General Election suggest Podemos (anti-establishment left wing) and the Socialist Party (centre-left) may just have enough seats between them to be able to form a coalition government. It's significant because they couldn't form a coalition after the Dec 2015 election because of the Socialists reluctance to work with Catalan/Basque nationalist parties, whereas they should be able to do it without them this time. Also Podemos are now larger than the Socialists, it was the other way round last time.

    That will happen without central British action, Foster has already refused a border poll. It'll get worse from there as unionists turn against the DUP.

    Are you suggesting that NI citizens actually want a border?

    Sinn Fein are rightly raising the question of a United Ireland and we should have a poll to determine if leaving the EU is enough of a shift to make us support a UI. Ideally there would be no border, but since it'll be left to us to sort with no help from Westminster, there could be border issues.

    I don't think it would shift enough, but I hope they give more space and at least listen to reports bigging up Irish trade.

    Arlene is an idiot, and I hope that the DUP suffer for it.

    I'd be supportive given that they are our brethren and don't seem to be allowing the third world to enter en mass.

    Voting Brexit things haven't calmed down and British Politics is in a complete mess and its looks like it's going worse and it's at least going to continue to Christmas . Hopefully Corbyn will be gone by Tuesday and May will confirm her intention to lead the party by the end of the week

    There is no mechanism for Corbyn to go any time soon short of resignation

    Having remembered that the Asian markets will be open just checked sterling against the dollar and Euro. Opened a little under 2pc against the dollar and a little over 1pc down against the Euro, hopefully Osborne coming out of hiding tomorrow will rally it

    Obviously it isn't necessarily due to Brexit, I would expect a 1.75% change over a weekend to be perfectly normal.
