Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

This discussion kind of makes me feel like we need to do a meta mafia game... You get a role PM where you play as another player, with abilities/quirks related to their playstyle. I think this was done at least once or twice some years back, but I don't think it's been done recently. I played in th...

Re: British EU referendum in June [update: Leave wins 52% - 48%, politics ensue]

Giving the UK a good deal would be extremely detrimental to the EU, which is already facing existential pressure that is being exacerbated by the EU. How so? From an economic point of view, they get to continue trading under good terms with a major economic power. From a political point of view, th...

Spain has been trying to get Gibraltar back for ages, it is unsurprising that they would attempt to do so with Brexit. The EU didn't demand Gibraltaras part of the Brexit, or anything like it. They said that Gibraltar would not automatically get the same trade deal as the UK, unless Spain agrees. T...

She might not be bluffing, but if she isn't then she is an idiot.

And i can't blame the EU for giving preference to countries within it. Spain has been trying to get Gibraltar back for ages, it is unsurprising that they would attempt to do so with Brexit.

The EU does prohibit individual countries from making trade/immigration deals. And it has a pretty high incentive to force a bad deal on Britain. The economy of the (EU-Britain) is about 12.5 trillion, with the economy of eu being about 2.5 trillion. So Britain makes up about 20% of the total EU eco...
