Re: Brexit

I think it's a great opportunity for India to go in, divide and conquer

Even the vote for a separate Scotland was discussed more by outsiders than the Scottish and British!

Leave it, let them be. Their country, their politics, their choice.
Lekin Sir, public ko pataa kahaa rahta hai ki woh kya vote de rahe hain.
Kuchh idhar udhar se sunkar ke vote de aate hain.

My contention is only knwledgeable public should be voting.

Sarvi, the big difference here is that the traditional parties Conservatives and Labour have split on either side of this decision. The Conservative party has a pro exit and post exist faction and so does labour.
There are opportunists ofcourse who oppose/support an angle to further their ambitions, however essentially people are either supportive or unsupportive of the idea irrespective of what political party do they belong to.

another point to note, the parties have not actually officially split!

bhau, its a little more complicated this time around as compared to Scottish referendum. Britain is the worlds 5th or 6th largest economy (depending on whose claim you listen to). An exit is impacting not just Britain but other countries too. BSE Sensex fell down 950 points on the news of exist winning! The fate of TATA Steel plant in wales hangs in balance - this is not as much of an impact on India as on UK but it is linked to Tata's liabilities.

An exit for UK will cause uncertainty with the banks based in london and that might drag down other banks. In worst case scenario if other countries in EU get impacted and demand/have similar referendums, the Euro could break up and that will definitely impact the global economy!

why do you think so? This is a country which ruled half the world at some point in the past, now they have to follow regulations set by people sitting in another country and who the british people have not even elected!

A lot of Pro Pak writers were saying - "Look at this and hold a similar referendum in Kashmir".

Else, for those in 'Bregret', it is not the end of the world. Britain anyway is not so tightly tied to EU like France or Belgium or Germany. With pound going downhill, the Britain might be able to export more.

Thumbs up Re: Brexit

NEW DELHI: India and the UK are exploring the possibility of a free-trade agreement after the British voters backed an exit from the European Union.
Although it is still early days to decide on a bilateral agreement, which goes through several rounds of discussions, a treaty could result in cheaper Scotch prices, if India agrees to cut import duty from the current levels of 150%. In return, Indian goods such as garments could be allowed to enter the British market on payment of lower customs duty, while the government is also expected to pitch for easier visa rules for Indian professionals.

Re: Brexit

Its been happening times since the vote. The political landscape has changed almost daily, if not hourly on some days...

within a little over 2 weeks -

* Britain votes to leave the EU
* The PM resigns and begins serving the notice period
* The main opposition party begins no-confidence motion against their leader
* Scotland starts talking about another independence referendum and asks EU to let them remain in EU. The request is not even considered.
* NI talks about merging with republic of Ireland.
* The leader of exit side gets a shock when his second in command announces he is running to be the next PM
* Leader of exit side withdraws from the race (rather does not enter the race itself!)
* Other main character on the exit side (Nigel Farage) steps down from the UK Independence Party leadership position
* British EU commissioner steps down
* British stock market starts its roller coaster with FTSE first going down then springing back up. It was at a 11 month high yesterday!
* British pound takes a beating and starts its journey down
* Top Gear host Chris Evans steps down - nothing to do with EU debate, but still....
* EU blows hot and cold over the referendum with leaders first urging Britain to exit asap while Merkel says the negotiations should be courteous and finally saying negotiations will not start unless Britain officially presents the intention to leave (this will start the clock on the 2 year notice period. If negotiations are not complete within the 2 year span, Britain will be out of EU without any agreements with anyone)
* All exit leaders eliminated from the race to be the next PM with Gove losing the internal Tory party ballot and Leadsom withdrawing!
* Next British PM will be a woman from the "Remain in EU" side - although she wasn't very vocal during the campaigning.
* Another woman starts the challenge for leadership of the main opposition Labour party.

Re: Brexit

^^
So, after the Iron Lady both PM and opposition will be women, thanks to Brexit.

After 50 years, Inglistan and the Eurabian Continent will anyway be a part of PU (Peaceful Union) anyways.
