ALL TEMPORARY. The EU thing was for decades ahead. The people who voted out were the brave ones. Accept it.
Not my prediction, the prediction of the vast majority of experts on the economy.
The vast majority of experts on being working class grafters have given up on listening to these people, evidently. Maybe it's because the 'economy' isn't helping them much, unless they live in certain districts of London etc. People have had enough of the bulls**t pal. Look at the result.
But we don't want that "future pride"! If voting age was 16 and above, Britain would have voted to remain in the EU. The whole thing has been based on immigration, and to be quite honest, it's not exactly going to do much about all the people who are already here.
At least I know for sure I'm leaving this country for sure.
Well it's a good job that 16 year olds who don't have enough life experience don't have the right to impact important decisions on the future of our country. Wisdom comes with age I'm afraid.
Or perhaps we should vote, seeing as either remain or leave and any other major political vote, we are going to have to try and clean up the mess left behind a few years down the line.
That's the problem with politics. Everybody loses.
Is there a plan? I'm not sure there is.
Lots of people want out, but for different reasons (immigration seemingly most important to many/most), it makes negotiating an exit extremely difficult and many people probably won't get the sort of exit they were hoping for.
Do we pay in and accept EU rules to remain in the market? I suspect that's an issue that divides the leave camp almost as closely as the overall decision divides the UK.
June 23 , a national bank holiday .
How we will bask in the sun every June the 23rd British/English Independence Day. Rejoice
(if it happens, obviously)
Well done Britain, we've shafted ourselves
And he's gone ! Yeah Boris for PM
Well the public are going to be blamed for problems for years to come, as we voted out.
And now it time for Osborne to punish us, with the threatened tax hikes and benefit cuts using the you voted for it defence
I don't blame him for stepping down. "You don't drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there"
This will not be an instant change. We'll just get shafted more and more over the coming two years. The Brits would riot if all the changes came into place at once, but if they're introduced one shaft at a time, we'll take it. My job is also funded by the European Social Fund and has helped to reduce unemployment in this country to it's lowest ever. That will now surely change.
Nigel Farage was quoted on T.V this morning saying that the '£350Million' a week that would be pledged to the NHS upon leaving was a mistake. The lies now unravel.
A sad day and one many will regret over the coming years.
I feel physically ill and incredibly sad.
A dark day.
This is 2016. What happened to tolerance, inclusivity, openness?
It only stretches so far. We're not the world's charity, and nor should we be. Look after your own first, and then you'll be comfortably able to look after others. Life is not a fairytale unfortunately.
I look forward to Boris privatising the NHS and shafting the working class with further cuts as we look to balance the various funding the EU would receive whilst also losing a fair chunk of the current EU national workforce...
Look at Cornwall, the people vote out and now they have to ask the government to assure that the EU funding they received does not dry up...
Plus no doubt Scotland will hold another referendum, and even the Irish are murmuring about unification...
If only 'decent people' voted for this, then I prefer to be an indecent person...
Look after your own by risking millions of jobs, making our economy worse and handing over the NHS to right wing leaders who want to make it private. Great logic there.
I'm reading up on the info on how to apply for an Irish passport, as I feel that my British one that I only renewed in January is going to be worthless soon enough (I mean it has 'European Union' plastered over the front). Two passports for easy travel around all our favourite theme parks on the continent.
I'm British, Irish and a smidgen of Swedish. At least not being in the EU doesn't stop me from being European. Strangely this morning I feel more European more than ever before.
Don't get me wrong, I think the EU needs massive reform, needs a major re-thinking of what it's for and represents. It's failed some parts of Europe, but at the same time I'm not wholly convinced it's also fully to blame for the employment and financial problems they have either. It's also done a great deal for many countries in Europe, particularly the ex-Soviet bloc. Sheila Hancock said it so eloquently as one of the few good parts of the Channel 4 debate. But certainly, the vision it had in 1992 - its fair to say the world has changed a great deal since then.
I also wish the 'leave' campaign hadn't touched the issue of immigration at all. I think the rest of the world looking at the UK right now... it's not good. I'm ashamed of that.
If Scotland demand another independence vote, if Northern Ireland begin to consider unification, given the results in the different nations... well there won't be a stronger UK. We won't have one. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will cease to exist. Great Britain will cease to exist. Which wasn't exactly the outcome that people were voting for? If Scotland demand it, I think we have to call for second nationwide referendum for the people to decide which is more important to them: leaving the European Union or the continuing existence of the United Kingdom.
The proud British tradition of blaming everyone else for our problems, shooting ourselves in the foot and blaming someone else for that too continues.
See you in Tuvalu.
