    Thank you Jojo. This household certainly has no intention of ceasing to support the RNLI and i'm astonished that anyone would.

    To return to the actual purpose of this thread, can I suggest that you preppers get in a shot gun and ammo, plus, drug barron style doors and window shutters?

    I live in Northern Ireland and I’ve only ever held an Irish passport

    Today I was reading the latest figures of those applying for an Irish passport who are living in Great Britain or Northern Ireland. 98,544 were from Great Britain an increase of 22 percent on last year and 84,855 were from Northern Ireland . An increase of 2 percent

    One must wonder how many of those voted Brexit but now want to hedge their bets!

    I needed to stop donating to the RNLI for the time being/stop volunteering for them if I were doing that until all this is over.

    When do you think 'this' will be over?

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do by way of prepping for Brexit or any other reason I have decided to do my own 'thing' and not listen to or read posts from people who are rude and unpleasant. I know there are real people reading who are trying their best to keep the wolf from the door and making provision as they see fit to weather whatever happens at the end of March and find some posters words, attitude and downright aggressiveness sickening so I leave you with a little regret and wish you all luck for your individual futures

    Or could just be making sure they get the passport they are entitled to in case the rules change.
    It doesn't matter if you are a glass half full or half empty sort of person. Keep it topped up! Cheers!

    No - in a word..........

    Whether we voted for or against - it made sense for us personally to prepare. It is going to be Brexit - despite those who don't want it to be and are still arguing against democracy.

    Hopefully, our government has also made preparations.

    So....

    In a democracy, we are allowed to speak up against things we don't agree with. Bearing in mind that every prediction and forecast regarding Brexit is negative, you must have some understanding as to why people feel Brexit will be one of the worst mistakes in our history, and refuse to keep quiet about it?
