Cameron fucked up big time IMO - if he wanted us to stay , then why have a vote , also why not campaign harder on the subject - a near 50-50 split was always going to be uncomfortably close . NOw with this result history will blame HIM for all this and he wioll eithe rend up a Churchillian hero or a Chamberlain type appeaser /loser type - only history will tell on that one . Yes - we have grabbed our own destiny back but what destiny is it - to be a third world economy or minor world player or once again at the forefront of world events. I think the EU needed reforms , but maybe we could have done from within , whatever I don't think Cameron got the message across . Maybe the EU should really look at itself more closely now .
I think you should congratulate yourself from your exit from the United States of Germany, oops sorry I mean Europe.

Your either gonna thrive with the new business from India China Brazil etc or you gonna be left out in the cold. Either way I think you have opened up the door to Denmark and Belgium and maybe even France voting on leaving in the next few years.

The leaders of the Leave EU have shat on your face!!!

They won't use this extra £350 million on the NHS, they don't know what they are doing and thanks to the Leave EU campaign Scotland and Northern Ireland might just go their own way. Wales will probably follow!!!

I think after the first few weeks , early in the campaign , I decided to ignore what the politicans on both sides were saying as most from both sides sounded like spin and no actual substance . Can't say for certain but I'm not sure Leave ever said what it would do with the supposed £350m - I think saying it would fund a hospital every week was an example not a promise , plus we don't know how much of that £350m will disappear elsewhere . There will be uncwertainty for years , there will be ups and downs - you can guarantee that whatever happened the "little people " won't be any better off, we'd be the same at best , if this leave fails you can guarantee its the ordinary person who pays for it , if it works , we won't get rewarded . Whatever happens politicians will shit on us .

You don't think there will be referendums or that they'll vote to stay?
I can see Irish unification being a 'hard sell' but not Scottish independence so much.

here is my 2 cents ..........

congratulations on taking a risk and a chance on changing the status quo.
the people have cast their vote.

do not let the worlds top 1% (rich, politicians, judges, etc) scare you.
throw a feral cat into a pit with 100 hungry mice, the cat will die.
that is called strength in numbers.

history has and will continue to prove this when the common people are finally fed up with being taken advantage of.

xenophobia?
tell your politicians, everyone has their place, to take care of your nationals first.
the whole ideology, certain cultures can mingle and co-exist together, is just a fantasy.
if you can't do yours there, then theirs will not be tolerated for them here.
when the 4 horsemen visit a country, no other country should feel obligated to rescue them.
human life is truly cheap.
accept fate.

wish to move some place else?
come to OHIO, especially the northeast.
we have it all.
low cost of living, change of seasons, etc etc etc.
i shit you not.
endless recreation, outdoors and indoors.

if you are a spineless politically correct no common sense nutter,
suppose you are welcome too.
but we have plenty of them already, licking the brown eye on every minority agenda.

oh well.
heavy sigh.
all will continue as usual.
sun will rise and set.
water will ebb and flow.
many beers will be consumed.

have a great weak-end.
but pinch those cheeks together.
May the flies of 1000 camels nest in your armpits !

If you want SYMPATHY ?..........
You will find it in the dictionary between ` SHIT & SYPHILIS ' !

I got a mate who did just that, moved to Columbus, 5 years later he nearly
died froma blood infection from a tooth abscess and not enough cash/insurance
to fix it. When he came back to Scotland he got it fixed for free.

Col-dumbass(as we Ohioans call it) is not in the northeast.
did he get bit by bedbugs too?

ps: columbus does have an awesome zoo though.
so his time there couldn't be all that bad, eh?

Scotland already voted No to independence.

The idea that Scotland voted to remain in Europe has no more relevance than any other region of the U.K. voting to remain.

The UK voted out, and that's it.

The SNP will try for a second referendum - that's all they're about, a one policy party - but let's wait until things settle down a bit.

The Netherlands and Denmark, possibly others, might now also vote out so Scotland might be trying to join just as everyone's leaving. And they would have to join the queue, membership is not a given.

Wee Jimmy Crankie (Nicola Sturgeon) talks a good game but she represents a minority view in Scotland despite the number of seats the SNP hold in Holyrood and Westminster.

Mind you, Rockula, we're all just guessing and speculating.

Who knows ?
