Prime Minister Theresa May is to officially notify the European Union next Wednesday that the UK is leaving.

Downing Street said she would write a letter to the European Council, adding that it hoped negotiations on the terms of exit and future relations could then begin as quickly as possible.

The move comes nine months after a referendum in which the UK voted to leave by a margin of 51.9% to 48.1%.

None after they all see how badly the UK gets f*cked over by the EU.

Don't count on it. There's lots of tough talk, but it's in no ones interests to dr*t anyone over.

aren't the far right or anti-EU elements in some countries enough to trigger a vote on it?

If it wants to cut off other countries from contemplating leaving (which it totally does) it is definetly in the EU's interest to play hard-ball, letting the UK off the hook would send the wrong message to the EU agitators.

What?

I mean, I would love to be wrong, but normally in divorces nobody thinks of the children and it is all about getting revenge. I expect Scotland leaving the UK would be just as messy with both sides going through some brinkmanship to 'win'

It's unlikely.

This article is a nauseating cesspit of casual misogyny.

It's at least nice to know that despite our governments' and cultures' many differences, old folks on both sides of the Atlantic share a love for NCIS.

I agree with the nauseating cesspit, but not seeing much misogyny, tbh.

I understand that sentiment but the status quo is so important across the EU that a bit of tough talk is inevitable, but serious damage? Less likely. German and French industry relies on the UK every bit as much as the UK relies on them.

I accept the EU Commission stance that the UK cannot be seen to have a better deal outside the EU than in it, but I don't agree with you that the UK will get "dr*ted over".

Not really. 7% of German and French exports go to the UK. 44% of UK exports go to the EU.

No one EU country will be massively effected by trade barriers with the UK. Trade barriers for the UK to the EU, on the other hand...

I imagine that English exports to Scotland will massively increase.

There's another petition around here for the North to join Scotland. If Scotland leaves they want the border to run along the river Dee and to the mouth of the Humber.

I'm no expert on your politics, but I would think a petition like that has about as much chance of succeeding as a petition for Texas or California to secede from the U.S., right?

Yeah it's never gonna happen. It's a bit of a fantasy really.

But it's a result of being the afterthought. London always comes first and we just get the dregs and hand me downs.

That is sort of confusing to me, though.
Does your area have much in common with Scotland, politically speaking? I mean most of the North voted to leave, while London was overwhelmingly Remain, as was Scotland.
Is it just a "f*ck you" to London, like an anti-government/anti-elites thing?

(Really not casting judgment here - I just honestly don't know.)

We feel we're treated more of the same way as Scotland and N.I.

It's like, the further away from central London you are, the less they care about you.

(Also, a lot of the people signing the petition are remain voters)

This is an article on the petition from my local paper
