Neil D BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4463* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 29 Aug 19


I just spent a couple hours reading through several days of posts on this thread and want to thank the Britcatters for getting me up to speed on Brexit. We don't get much coverage of the issue here in the U.S. I saw one article regarding the suspension of Parliament (we don't use the word prorogation here), without much detail. There's very little interest here; millions of Americans don't even know the word Brexit, yet it's not like we won't be involved at some level. My understanding is that Brexiteers hope to replace potentially lost trade with Europe by signing a more favorable trade treaty with the U.S. This is something Trump will most likely embrace considering his disdain for European leaders and Boris being his long lost clone.
One general question I've long had: Is there any sentiment among Scots for a new Independence referendum and any possibility it would be allowed by Parliament? And what about Northern Ireland? I know that the populations of both countries voted against Brexit by a clear majority. I'm sure it has been a topic of discussion over there, but as I said, we get very little info about it in our media.
