Brexit!!!

Wow I've been waiting for this moment for a long time.

Most of my friends and myself are totally GUTTED!!!

In my heart I was hoping for BREXIT, so I'm sort of pleased. But probably this will mean that we'll have another referendum in Scotland for independance. And when that will lead to independence the first thing the Scots will do is handing over all their powers to Europe again. Does anyone understand this?

The most silly thing Britain could do. So sorry for my good friends there. I am working with an Italian who's been working and living in Scotland for the last 9 years and him (and his family there) was not able to vote... this is racism, to say the least.

As a Brit who lives and works in the EU, I have to say I'm horrified by this morning's news. I didn't even get to vote as I have lived overseas for too long. It will take some considerable time for the withdrawal to be completed so the impact will not be felt for a few years. The cost of this decision is immeasurable at this time, but if anybody really thinks Britain will be better off economically due to this they need to do some research.

Such a close call....... it can't be called a UK vote when it was only barely over the half-way mark. So many disappointed people all over the UK and beyond ........

I'm not looking forward to all the fall-out from this.

Why is every one so negative. I think this will create a great opportunity to get some things right. Don't act like Europe is a blessing, it is not and the last two years proved it. Europe is not united and the politicians are not really there to serve the European people. I'm sure there will be good trade agreements at the end and I hope the UK will spend the money they save now in a good health service and other projects that benefit the people in the UK.

acording to the statistics young, educated voter decided with his head, older precariat with the belly. The crash of the pound is only a foretaste of the problems that the UK might get. Scots and Irish might urge to be independent - UK farewell....
Now Cameron is resigning - this is the icing on the cake imho: He should bloody well stay and sort out some of the mess.

Amazingly close. Very stupid to leave i'd say and I voted to stay. It was a complicated issue with good and bad on both sides though so not a black and white issue. Still, a sad day today.

I think this whole referendum has been very bad news for the country and was always going to leave a grimmer future even if the result was to stay. it was always going to be close and one thing it has created is an incredibly unpleasant wave of xenophobia and racism which was already on the rise anyway. Certain media and people have done their best to instigate and spread that hate and mis-information and it was never going to go away even with a stay result.

Exactly right Clive.

I was shocked when I saw the final tally. I was sure it'd swing the other way. Of the many negative elements to this debacle, I'll only comment on what I think it means for the next generation of the UK workforce: this referendum just removed their ability to easily work abroad. I spent the better part of a decade working in Europe as a US citizen, and I was always on the short end when it came to finding work because of all the available native-English-speaking Brits with no visa baggage. But that's now ending for those entering the workforce. Things just got a lot better for any Irish looking for work on the continent. And the Scots are next, once they have their own referendum.

Paranoia wins the day, to hell with opportunities for future generations.

Yes, why, Anita?

I am excited for Britain.

They can finally protect their culture, their borders, and their citizens... themselves... instead of accepting everything from countries around them... according to other people's decisions for their county.

It will take a while until they get back on their feet, but... At least they will be making their own rules about their country.

I think it will work well for them.

Just wow. But, on a somewhat happier note, the pound is sinking fast- London GTG?

Regardless of what history says about the results, the world is just plain stupid to panic on the first day after the vote. The only one that is going to benefit are those with the money to go in and snap up as much of what is value that everyone dumped and wait for it to stabilize and clime again... as it surely will and probably a lot sooner than some people think.

People, both in the UK and Europe and in many other places are missing, ignoring, don't care or what ever, the main issues that drove many people to vote to leave. The out of control immigration problem was only one of several and that problem is not going to get better unless all of Europe joins in controlling it.

For those that think the younger, "well educated" people voted right, I think they do not have the benefit of history to guide them. What history they do know they learned on Facebook and other social media from others as ignorant of anything beyond their last text message as them.

The vote didn't automatically pull the UK out of the EU... there are still a number of things that have to be done before it can even be started. Maybe if Europe and the UK would look at what brought this about rather than panicking and preaching doom and gloom, they can actually make things better. In the long run, I think England has a good chance to over come this while Europe itself will go further and further in debt and get buried with hordes of immigrants.

I sure wish I had a lot of money to buy pounds though... what an opportunity to make a lot of money.

It's not racism at all, your friend is not eligible to vote.

You can vote in this referendum if you are registered to vote in the UK, are 18 or over on 23 June 2016 and are:

A British or Irish citizen living in the UK, or
A Commonwealth citizen living in the UK who has leave to remain in the UK or who does not require leave to remain in the UK
A British citizen living overseas who has been registered to vote in the UK in the last 15 years
An Irish citizen living overseas who was born in Northern Ireland and who has been registered to vote in Northern Ireland in the last 15 years
If you are an EU citizen you are not eligible to vote in the EU Referendum, unless you meet the criteria above.

If I told you, you would never believe me!! Put it this way, I knew it was a matter of time before Britain would leave, or be kicked out either way. Like I said the world will never be the same!


Is there a conspiracy that I'm not privy to or do you have to much time on your mind ?

it is striking to see the correlation between vote and age. It appears the younger population just didn't vote as much.
