    On Friday 24th June 2016, 51.9% of the British voters have decided they wanted to withdraw from the European Union. :eek:

    It’s a historic moment that will change the course of history for the people of the UK. For the last 43 years the UK has been a member of the EU which has shaped the way they trade, travel and interact with our neighbour economies. Today, this is all about to change.

    We have published an article :arrow: HERE, explaining the implication and especially what are the options to move forward: Norway's style/EEA option (i.e. like Canada Dry, the taste of EU without the name), the Swiss option, or the WTO... or nothing?

    What do you think? Is there any implication for you? Are you planning to relocate out of Britain? Ask for another nationality? Ask for permanent residency? How does that affect you?
    We welcome your comments here.

    I live in Scotland, our government is fighting tooth and nail to keep us inside the European Union. As far as I'm concerned there's no need to do much but wait. When Scottish nationality becomes a real thing I will apply for it but this will only happen once we are independent which may happen sooner than later.

    The main consequence is financial with the pound tanking lower than in has over the past 30 years there are fears that much of our investments will have radically gone down in value.

    Thanks for your comment. With Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland has probably the only stable leader currently in Britain; and we can trust her to make enough pressure for the best result for Scottish people.

    I'm wondering how the people who are against the Scottish independence referendum from 2 years ago are feeling right now after Brexit.

    Some have switched in favour of independence but the exact numbers are hard to quantify. If we're to believe the polls on the matter which have fluctuated quite a bit over the past 4 months it's not as many as we'd like but there is a shift happening. The question nobody knows for sure at this stage is whether this will be enough to secure independence when the next referendum arrives.
