    Britain exits stage left

    So the votes are in and England says fuck it to the EU. The world market has already responded by taking a dive. So what do you guys think?? Is Europe going to implode?? Apparently Cameron says fuck it too and is resigning.

    I'm genuinely surprised, I honestly thought we'd stay. It's turning into a right shit storm already, father turning on son, brother turning on brother. All on Facebook though so it's okay. It's like some middle-class civil war.

      i've always felt that cameron had a smug, obnoxious air to him, but seeing him fail so spectacularly still isn't worth the fallout from this.

      also, by resigning he's coming off as a complete pussy (at least to me) but maybe i'm not seeing the big picture here.

        Yep, really disappointed. Pound has crashed, biggest drop on the stock exchange since 2008. Scotland has announced another leave vote (which they will probably win). The whole UK political scene is completely fractured. 3.5 million European's living in the UK - unsure what their status will be. Similarly there are millions of Brits living in Europe (often retired) who may have to return to the UK. Not necessarily booted out but with their UK sterling pensions and no reciprocal healthcare may not be able to afford to live in EU countries anymore.

        Its a fuck up

          I think you sum it up fairly well

            Yeah anyone who has any ties to Europe, personally or financially is almost certainly going to have a hard time of this. Hopefully everyone will calm down and treat this as just another bit of red tape to get past.

              I'm no fan of his but for once he's making the right decision. He called the referendum and vehemently backed the wrong horse, he's got to go.

                England and Wales both voted to leave. Scotland and N. Ireland didn't, but that's democracy. There's talks of another Scottish referendum, and a northern and southern Irish border poll....

                I'm just curious if I can still win the Euro millions. What sucks if I did, is even though it's tax free, I'd still have to give half of it to America. Looks like I'm going to feel like Jason Bourne with the amount of passports I'm about to have!

                  If you think Cameron is a smug shit, you have something in store for you with Johnson, Gove and Farage

                    Yeah good point - I wouldn't trust Boris to wipe his arse with both hands. Another Etonian like Cameron...

                      If I had a forex account, I'd be buying the fuck out of Sterling, right now.
                      Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

                        I'd be careful - the markets are going to be jumping all over the place for the next few months.

                          I've got two silver linings from this referendum:

                          1. Farage will finally fuck off, and
                          2. My ex is going to be deported

                            I don't do day trades. The Pound will recover.
