That is just the fear mongering by traitors.. this is better for us in the long run.


Traitors, what? Silly Pohms

Wake up man, this is going to get real hot real fast

It will be better in the long run I have no doubt, but prepare for the storm you will have to endure first

NPR was talking about that earlier today. Speculation that the young ones enjoy the unfettered travel and cultural exposure offered by the EU.

What experiences you have when coming of age become deeply ingrained. Of course, the oldsters did travel as well.

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.


Cameron has to go, he has NO Brexit plan.

Lots of sour faces from the remain camp, with the Lib Dem Leader (not that he's significant) fuming and stating that he doesn't want to live in a country outside the E.U.

Scotland are unhappy (nothing new there), with the talk immediately turning to another independence referendum.

Cameron gave the people a chance to decide where our future lies and the people have spoken. The BIG question now is will they listen?

I have a feeling that many of the EU countries will want to strike up some sort of agreements with regards to 'unfettered travel' for the UK.

Brits do a ton of travel in Europe for pleasure and work (many holiday homes etc)... and I don't think those countries that benefit from it are going to want to see a dip in their revenues.

It will be interesting to see how everyone irons out these various wrinkles over the next couple of years.

There will be a storm for sure, but we will once more be a free and independent Nation.

Took a while for the USSR to come to terms with it.
The adjustments and corrections will be challenging.

I also think that the result will bolster other countries campaigns for holding a referendum.
The Dutch will vote out next...how many will it take to leave for the EU to fail?.

No doubt about it.

Politicians, diplomats, representatives, and parliament on both sides of the english channel will most definitely be earning their paycheques... for a change.

I have a weird feeling that the people who fervently voted to leave will be the ones that are most negatively affected by it.

They will now know the true consequences of ignorance.

There are a lot of oldsters who plan on retiring to warmer climbs, rather than stay here when we haven't had a decent summer in years. It's better for them in the sun, less of a burden on the uk health system too. I know my parents both in their late 60s enjoy going to Spain all winter, getting out in the sun and socialising. Better than being couped up at home suffering SAD.. After seeing no sun days on end

Well, I am truly surprised. I was fully expecting a remain win - a close one, but remain getting a win none-the-less.

The high turnout compared to general elections shows that people were really passionate about this. It is a shame we don't get this sort of turnouts in general elections as things might be quite different if we had. Too if the government appeared to listen once in a while. The result certainly shows that people are dissatisfied with the current government and our position within Europe.

Where do we go from here? Well everyone is waiting for Cameron's speech, as I understand that although it was an exit win, the referendum is not actually legally binding and the government can take the result as advisory only. Not sure when he will make this speech - the BBC are saying that it will be before markets open at 9am.

I've already been reading official comments about it. Sounds like it is a credible possibility.

LOL leaving the domed city of Diaspar? Although there may be the underground tube system leading to the city of Lys, it is the only other city as the rest of the Earth has been ground to sand. There is the other option of space and to use the buried space ship outside the city walls. But as the populace of both cities have an inbuilt fear from just thinking about what lies "outside", actually physically leaving will be even harder.

Why does Cameron consider himself conservative? Is it different in London? Why would you want more terrorist muslims? Isn't that basically what this referendum was all about? Correct me if I'm wrong but the UK wants walls built on its shores! Go trump!

I get the impression people are over-exaggerating because they fear the unknown.

I don't think the EU will collapse. It might shrink though. And I think it's a tug of war. Eventually things will lump back together again, and then break apart again -- each time learning from past mistakes (hopefully). The failures of the EU can only serve as future lessons (hopefully).

In a way, if the EU kicks the bucket it'll bring back memories of traveling Europe and getting a ton of passport stamps and having to carry all kinds of different money.

Coming from America, that was kind of cool.

Unless this chart is upside down...oops

The pound just took the biggest dump in history. FTSE loses 8.5% already.

The older English voter that chose leave will be hurt the worst by it. Their pensions and spending power just took a massive hit.
