Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
There is another US factor that so far I haven't seen discussed. If you cast your mind back to 'The Troubles' a very large number of - mainly east coast - Americans were quite willing to contribute to 'the cause'. And all those people have votes in upcoming presidential elections. Trump is certainly opposed to the EU as a concept, but he is also in favour of getting votes where he can. I would not be surprised to see quite a few comments from both sides trying to win the support of these people.
