Did anyone notice this guy hosting the BBC news' pink shark tie?


Is that what's on his tie ?

I was squinting trying to figure out what those pink thingies were...

LOL, nice tie old chum !

The Pound will settle but It will probably settle a bit lower than it was.
I know the average was 1 pd to $1.60
Now it's down to 1 pd to $1.20.
Keep in mind this is just the vote.
The final leaving part is two years from now and who know what will happen between now and then.

Looks like it's official. Congratulations to the UK for leaving the EU!

Of course the EU has already declared to make an example of the UK, should they vote to leave.
They certainly hate democracy.

For anyone who's interested:

Here's the link to the live BBC newsfeed with everyone chitty chatting about what's now going to happen.

It's funny listening to the different reactions, some happy faces, some sour grapes faces.

I would say slightly more than half are the happy faces?

52%. Looking at the demographics, those that really understood what this was about won by 60-40 at least.

I can't parse the meaning there, but it doesn't really matter.

Except that the BBC leans towards the 'remain' camp... so they're interviewing more sour grapes faces than happy faces.

Me thinks the newspapers will be plastered more with end-of-the-world headlines in the coming days.

Will you keep Cameron? That's a big question, because of the negotiations about the brexit terms.
Will Scotland and Northern Ireland stay with England or the EU?

And what will happen inside the EU now? Will Denmark follow? The Netherlands? Italy?

So many questions!
But I am kind of happy, it is over. Cards on the table.

What a brilliant dawn.
I've never felt so elated at an election result. Ever.

Hopefully we don't keep Cameron. He can resign or be forced out. George Osborne is gone (Thank Christ) that's for damn sure.

I should think Scotland and N.I. will stay in the UK

Hopefully they'll be a cascade of referendums on EU membership, results may vary of course. Could be wrong though.

Congratulations.
And thank you for providing a ton more ATS fodder. Which would have happened either way, come to think of it.

Hopefully our politicians won't make a massive mess of the chance we have.
But yeah, more grit t'mill

I would like to see a united Ireland.

It would look nicer on a map

Mainstream American Media coverage of this is hilarious.

"The sky is falling!"

"World War III inevitable!"

"Brits = Xenophobic Isolationists"

Absolutely hilarious.

you know what'll actually happen? Things will be a bit # for a little while, then return to normal, probably better for the UK in the long run. The world is certainly not coming to an end.

Return to normal will start in 2 years +
UK will be the ball in a roulette of bankers speculation. For at least 2 years.
Not a funny thing.
And I am kind of afraid of Frances reaction.
Will they throw the UKs stuff out of the window?

Voting by age.

Old people voted to leave, young voted to stay.

Interesting...

I wonder if it has anything to do with old people remembering a pre-EU Britain, whereas young people only knowing an EU Britain ?
