    It might be easier for young New Zealanders to gain work permits.

    There are also going to be some sporting implications. The quality of the premier league could drop, European players maybe have to be subject to the same rules as non EU players, ie have to be established internationals.

    English Jelly babies from New world should become cheaper, while buying online from the UK should be cheaper, in the short term at least. Your running shoes will likely be cheaper if buying from the UK , however as most will be imported they will eventually increase their retail price in the UK

    Is this just the start? Will France, Italy etc follow and cause the disintegration of the E.U?

    Yes .... the ongoing nightmare of the non elected euro political elite controlling all the nations of the union will continue to fall apart ....

    I have a UK passport via grandfather from Ireland, I believe I read something from another friend in the same situation that they're ok, is that the case? Had mine issued before the EU was a thing etc.
    Also if it were currently expired, would brexit have an impact on my being able to get it renewed?

    Brexit a big thumbs down to the neo-liberal agenda. Perhaps other countries will follow suit. The EU is a very flawed model, not that Britain was part of that, but obviously had other implications in regards borders etc. I don't blame Britain for leaving, in fact I think it was brave and much of the rear lobbying by the Bremain camp will be proven false.

    Clip, I assume you mean Southern Ireland ? If so you should retain a European passport that in two years won't include Great Britain . I would get it renewed smartish though

    Hopefully you find my posts helpful, but in no way should they be construed as advice. Make your own decision.

    I have an Irish passport (free because I am over 65) although I a told that that has changed. I am entitled to a United kingdom passport on two grounds. 1, My parents were born in the Irish Republic before 1922. 2, Because I served as a regular soldier in the British Army. I have also registered my claim to UK citizenship with the Home Office in London and I have a reply to present to whoever at the relevant time. There is also a grandparent clause that allows the issue of an Irish passport but i am not sure of the details. I have been here since 1960 so I am sure I could squeeze NZ citizenship out of someone if I really wanted to.

    When I enquired about ten years ago, I was entitled to an Irish passport as one of my grandparents was Irish born. Also I am entitled to a British Patriality Certificate on the basis of another grandparent being Britsh-born. Perhaps if you have a Northern Irish grandparent you would be entitled to both UK Patriality and Irish Citizenship?

    Are you referring to the "lobbying" by independent economists and other "experts". Being "brave" may have the cost of a shrinking economy. When the health service and social security system feel the pinch from reduced funding from a shrinking economy, lets hope those Brexiteers voters give up their places in the queues to those who voted Remain.

    They should try again. Won't be hard to get a couple of million signatures supporting a replay.
