Kind of seems wrong that we are out when the vote was so close. And when Scotland, London, and Northern Ireland all voted to remain. And considering how fast Farage backtracked on the money supposedly heading for the NHS...I fear we will live to regret this outcome.

I think that a large number of the leave voters would include people that have ignorantly used this referendum as a two fingers to Cameron and the Tory government because of all the cuts made over the last few years.
White Van Man has won the day.

To put a positive spin on it, at least we will be able to go to the corner shop and get a quarter of sweets again Very Happy

Isn't that what living in a democracy is all about?

The majority voted out. So we're out.

The trouble with the government,well,all MPs and the media come to think of it,is they dont think anyone exists outside of London,they just go about their business as if London is a different country to the rest of Britain. I live in East Anglia,and to say its white van man who has voted us out or white working class men, is utter nonsense. The vast majority of East Anglia has very very rich people living in it. Its a tory strong hold. Every area voted out apart from the city of Norwich. Its fair to say the area has not been voted out by white van man,but by very wealthy guys.
The MPs want to get their arses out of west minister and come see how the rest of the country feels about issues. Its not all about bloody London !!!!!

That's not the only point the Leave campaign is backtracking about:

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jun/25/leave-campaign-rows-back-key-pledges-immigration-nhs-spending

Scaremongering about immigration was key to the Leave campaign.

It should be pointed for years before the UK joined the EU a group of people immigrated to the UK in their 1000's each and every year with little or no fuss. They are called the Irish.

I think that the exit decision is brilliant for the UK. It cannot be disputed that the result is undisputed proof of democracy in action. What gets me is that those in the Remain camp are such poor losers. When they criticize the decision they in effect not only undermine the process of democracy but are stating that the people who voted Leave don't know what they are on about. These people can be their colleagues, neighbors, family or indeed any other person(s) within THEIR COMMUNITY. It's ridiculous. I find it really concerning that Scotland had a referendum and chose to stay part of the UNITED kingdom, yet when the UNITED kingdom had the COLLECTIVE opportunity and chose to democratically vote to exit, Scottish Parliament then wants to stay in Europe? Not really wanting to accept the DEMOCRATIC vote of the MAJORITY of the UNITED kingdom. So where does this end? Do we then say "well the majority of voters in London voted Remain so London should remain. I can accept that a lot of the Remain voters were not even born pre-being part of the EU but where is there reference point. This vote has shown that the MAJORITY of people in the UK want to leave Europe. I am not anti-Scottish and should Scotland choose that they only wanted to be a part of the UNITED kingdom as long as we remained in Europe, then their previous referendum vote was flimsy in the first place wasn't it?

Apart from that fact people voted for it can you explain why the vote to Leave was 'brilliant for the UK'.

Scotland had a Tory government for decades when the majority voted Labour.

Didn't hear anyone calling for a 2nd general election.

In any case I believe the whole thing is rigged, they'll have another fake referendum and we'll all see what fools we were for thinking we could survive without Germany.

You must be one of those that called for a second referendum in Ireland? The majority wins, they call it democracy.
Why should England stay in the EU just because Scotland wants to? In any case the Scots want away from England anyway so whats the problem?

Yes because becoming a "state" in the United States of Europe is a much better option?

Also how can I be a "Little Englander" and also think "Britain has an empire."?

Lack of education there I think,

Xenophobia won.

I don't want a second referendum or any of that. This country has to move and accept the fact we failed a basic IQ test.

How anyone why has ever come to this country and made a life here must feel - fuck knows.

I don't know why I'm surprised Specials fans should be Brexiters - but clearly they're out there. Very fucking Two-Tone.

Have another read at what I posted:


"Little Englanders AND those who still think Britain has an empire have won the day". It's all in the AND.

Britain does not exist in a vacuum. It will still have to trade with the largest economic block in the world. And it will have to trade to its standards, without having s say in what those standards are.

Lack of education and economic foresight there I think. [

By the way the majority in Northern Ireland also voted to Remain. Wink

It's worrying how little thought went into the constitutional legality of the referendum. As it stands Westminster would be perfectly entitled to ignore the results of the referendum. Shocked

Cameron played a very gunhoo poker hand with his Right and lost.

I can't understand all this talk of 'Little Englanders'? What is a 'Little Englander? Is it a racist who bangs on about how things were "better in the old days" (60's and 70's) Bangs on about the 1966 World Cup. Eats Pie and Mash and Curry (oi Gungadin 'annuver pint of lager and a popadom over 'ere). Say's things like "'ee's Black, but 'ee's alright, 'ee's like one of us" Has a 'skin'ead' and wears 'bovver boots'? (and of course votes UKIP, NF or EDL). This was a DEMOCRATIC vote for ALL people who can vote in the country. What in effect you are saying is that you are not comfortable, or rather cannot accept that. Do you include people with black and asian skin colour who voted BREXIT in your 'Little Englander' label. I ask again, what is a 'Little Englander'? Please, someone enlighten me because I am at a loss with that term.
