    Its looking like the people in the UK have had enough.
    Exit polls show the Tories picking up a true majority, Labour losing a lot of seats and the liberal Dems getting just 13.
    If Boris takes it, he can push a parlimentary vote for brexit before the end of December and send Corbyn off to a home for has been reds where he can spend his time hammering Stoli, playing Risk and dreaming of his socialist Utopia that almost was.

    I doubt Northern Ireland and manta will like these results.

    USMCA passes (any minute now). UK gets Brexit done. US and UK make new trade deal.

    Dow is back up above 28,000. What's not to love?

    It'll be very interesting with this impeachment thing with Trump if it blows up in their faces.
    The ramifications could be very interesting especially for the media.

    Haven't really delved into UK politics - just monitored. But I must say I am pleased with their conservative conversion, and prospects for a Brexit to free them from the tyranny of the EU not unlike what we 'Mericans did from King George, but without the bloodshed.

    Ireland I think is the EU. May no longer have any open border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

    Ireland is indeed EU. This should make it a little clearer.

    The Isle of Man and the FOUR Channel Islands are not part of the United Kingdom, and never have been. The Isle of Man is an independent territory - a Crown Dependency - with its own democratic parliament [The House of Keys] that is older than the English Parliament. The Channel Islands, Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark, were all part of the Duchy of Normandy, and were so before the invasion of 1066. They are, therefore, senior in 'entitlement' to ALL of what is now called the United Kingdom. They also have their own government, which is why they, and the Isle of Man, still have their handguns. The Channel Islands are also classed as Crown Dependencies, just like Gibraltar and The Falkland Islands.

    The native language of the Isle of Man, Manx, is an odd mixture of Irish and Norse, as befits its history. The Channel Islands, unsurprisingly given that you can actually see people waving to you on the beaches in France, are mostly English AND French speakers, with a system of government legislature based on what we would call 'seigneurie' in Québec. You'd have to look it all up, if you are interested enough.

    How will the Catholic's and the newer small radical groups look at this situation?

    Good question, it depends how it plays out. The small radical groups are intent on causing trouble and have being murdering people for the last twenty years, but on a smaller scale than in the past. So it will be business as usual for them in or out of the EU.
