Nigel Farage, UKIP and EU Membership
It looks as though another potential escapee from the EU fold may be on the horizon.

Is Ireland Ready to Ankle the EU? God and St. Patrick, please let it be so.

Quote:THE EUROPEAN Union “shafted” Ireland and will pay the price with a shock ‘Irexit’, a think tank has warned.
Dublin-based Hibernia Forum said the Republic could leave the bloc as revenge for its treatment by Brussels during the financial crisis. Co-founder Keith Redmond said the country had been “quarantined” and forced to take on “toxic banking debt”.

Mr Redmond, who is also a councillor on the Fingal County Council, told Express.co.uk other factors, such as a growing loss of sovereignty, could lead to an Irish EU exit. When asked whether euroscepticism was growing on the island, he said: “For sure. There is definitely a support for stopping what seems to be an unstoppable march to EU integration, EU super state, whatever you want to call it.”

He said a growing distrust of Brussels was centred on three concerns: a lack of accountability from those in power, a loss of sovereignty in Ireland and the EU’s treatment of the country during the banking crisis. Mr Redmond said: “Ireland as an island was quarantined for the toxic banking debt of the EU. They basically shafted us.”

During the inception tears of the EU, Ireland was one of the holdout nations that resisted joining up. It was the most economically effective nation in the cross hairs, but no longer is.

Looks like its "All Ahead Full..." : 'No turning back' on Brexit as Article 50 triggered.

Quote:In a statement in the Commons, the prime minister said: "Today the government acts on the democratic will of the British people and it acts too on the clear and convincing position of this House."

She added: "The Article 50 process is now under way and in accordance with the wishes of the British people the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union.

"This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back."

She said Britain would now make its own decisions and its own laws and "take control of the things that matter most to us - we are going to take this opportunity to build a stronger, fairer Britain, a country that our children and grandchildren are proud to call home".

But not everyone is happy with the circumstances. Leavers, beware: Theresa May is offering the exact opposite of what you voted for
