I am friends with someone who is a member of a political party and he shook his head when I told him the news. The pound drops to it's lowest value in 31 years in a matter of hours-that is no coincidence.
The rest of the world warned of the economical and financial ramifications but the voters didn't listen and now others will have to suffer.

They are now asking for a 2nd referendum.
What a joke.
Take a look here.
A parliamentary petition calling for a second referendum has attracted more than half a million signatures, even as unprecedented demand temporarily crashed the website. On Friday a government website saw an “exceptionally high” number of visits as hundreds of thousands of signatures were added to a second referendum e-petition in the wake of Britain’s leave vote
Pure sour Grapes on behalf of those that lost.
Expect more fear mongering and i would expect everything to be blamed on the Brexit.
Great to see Cameron have his arse handed to him on a plate but he just come out and said he has resigned as he will have to do all the hard work just for someone else to step in......totally spineless gutless display,since when was the job about him and not in the benefit of the country?

Maybe this was deliberate to make us think they are lying and against it and do what they wanted and vote leave.
Bit like reverse psychology. Because we have been trained to "know" that MPs lie and experts can be bought, this is what might be assumed. Who would know for sure if they were actually telling the truth until after it happened?

The UK has been independent for 2,000 years without a problem. But now that they were part of the EU for 15 years, everything is going to collapse?

Now that the UK can pass their own laws it's going to be easy to just say "let's allow anyone with an EU passport to work in the UK. Then a reciprocal deal could be made with the EU".

and i know 2 who voted to "Remain", this after the result. My social network was completely "Leave" with the exception of these two who never made a comment anyway.
Hard Cheese, LOL
This is the part I don't get, not only have the UK always been able to make their own laws but they've been leading the way in a lot of respects in the EU, why don't people see that?
I want the whole of the people of these isles to stand as one before our government, and demand that ALL of us get a proper voice

Well, I see the petition for new a referendum is already well over the 2million mark..including my own mark I am glad to say, and I have no qualms about it.
It seems too that A leading 'leaver' Nigel Farage would have had no qualms about that either
UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who has campaigned for the UK to leave the EU throughout his political career, said in May that a narrow win for Remain could cause unstoppable demand for a rerun of the referendum.
Dammit, I think he even used almost the same figures in reverse for his reasoning.
