Any UKers here? What do you all think of tomorrow's vote to secede?

I'm not from the UK but am now curious because I haven't heard of this. Heard of many members of the UK wanting to secede from the EU.

Odds are slightly in favor of them not seceding but it's a real possibility they will vote to secede. In which case there'll be like an 18 month period where they sort out the details before fully splitting. The "no" campaign (i.e. don't secede) has been kinda hamstrung since they just assumed it never had a realistic chance of passing so they've had to go into a blitz of campaigning these past 2 weeks.

On a similar note, California will never become 6 states. Even its own residents didn't want it.

Well that was just some rich people trying to push it so they don't have to pay more taxes while they're in Silicon Valley. Hardly anyone wanted it. If a split had to be done, I would do it north/south, maybe something like:

There is actually a pretty larger conservative component to California but there's just so many more liberals as well.

NoCal and SoCal are so different. I hated SoCal while I was there. Everything is too far between and the scenery is ugly. Also, the sun. Think I'd like to see NoCal.

I've been seeing things about it on Tumblr, however, (surprisingly to me) the people I follow that were talking about it have all been against seceding.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I imagine secession would be very complicated.

Oh yeah Lake Elsinore is right by me, though that is a bit of a funny town. I mean hey if you aren't used to anything else, it's probably better than Detroit.

Yeah, you mentioned that when I tried to get you to hang out with me. I did absolutely nothing the whole week. Disneyland was a fluke because I have a friend out there and he has a girlfriend who works at the park.

Anywhere is better than Detroit.

I think I vaguely remember that, I don't recall if I just gave a no or sort of brushed it off though. CM was in like San Bernandino or something right?

You were indecisive and a bit reluctant. I don't know, I met him at Disneyland.

Scottland won't secede because they'd have to pay a shit ton of money to set up a government

Which means more taxes

Money makes things work. Makes me wonder what the British thought of us when we had a civil war here.

Plenty of people have gotten away from the British in the past and they're doing just fine

And actually they probably wouldn't mind higher taxes, Scotland is more liberal than the rest of the UK and it's one of their primary grievances in hoping to secede. And given the relative amount of devolution in the area, I imagine they already have a fair amount of government institutions already established.

Of course it will have costs, but then this isn't a purely economical decision, and it's possible that short term cost could mean long term gains.

but i haven't heard enough reports from the actually people to know what the general say is
