Wow. Brexit.

Despite voting with my gut and going for a Leave vote, I'm kind of shocked to be sitting here watching the UK come out of the EU after our referendum. We have Brexit. It feels weird, the day is already light at 6am and I'm looking at a world that doesn't appear any different - but it is. I've not slept and have been glued to the Sky News results show since the polls closed at 10pm last night, there are still a few more areas of the country to declare at this point but it's obvious just looking at the figures that the Remain camp can't mathematically win now. With a bit of luck David Cameron will resign within the next hour or two (hopefully taking the odious Osbourne with him). Exciting times! (Photo credit - Pixabay)

From the sounds of the early morning news he'll be making a statement within a couple of hours - I personally think he'll be gone today @Inlemay (and good riddance!)

@chrisandmark I have heard moans about him, we only see what we get on News and TV - never the full picture. Barry always keeps us updated, but the lad is still sleeping and hasnt said a word yet. I am watching sky news to see the developments. My hubby says that the change will have an effect on our Gold Price - It should go up - hopefully as we have shares we would like to sell for travel money.

@chrisandmark Yes, I have read, weird.

The only reason he's resigning is because it's the best power play ever. He just managed to destroy Boris and company who are left in a lose lose situation. He's simply letting them deal with the crap they started

I wasn't really passionate for staying or leaving to be honest @Marcyaz but am always glad to see things going badly for the Tory party!

UI applaud the Brits for taking back their country. If the predictions of calamity happen the pro EU should be thrilled because it will prove their point in the long run. But are they scared to be proven wrong?

The Remain camp are proving to be very sore losers @JohnRoberts !

You've just empowered racist and xenophobes while managing to destroy the economy in the next three years all with one fluent motion. Good on you.

Racists and xenophobes - if I had a penny for every time someone on the losing side has said this I'd be a rich woman by now. Empower YOURSELF @Cherganski - these are exciting times for the UK, I'm sure all the doomsayers will be proved wrong to be honest and personally I'm happy to be given a chance to stand on our own two feet as a nation that doesn't need our Eurocratic babysitters!

@chrisandmark Just go out in public and speak a foreign language loudly and see how you are treated after last thursday. You can be sure of whatever you want. No law against wishful thinking but the consequences of the choice made by racist xenophobes and all around uneducated people susceptible to propaganda are upon us already. There has already been a spike in hate crime. And the pound has once again plummeted today after being artificially kept steady for 3 days. This is before any action is even taken

@Cherganski See, while I respect your view it seems you (like the majority of the Remainers) are unnecessarily rude to anyone who doesn't share your view of the EU being a utopia. I live in massively multicultural Birmingham and there doesn't seem to have been any reduction in the amount of 'foreign languages' spoken, in fact the majority of my 'foreign' friends have all been in favour of Brexit. The problem is it vastly diminishes any moral high ground the Remainers have when they consistently denigrate the Leave voters - nothing says 'sore loser' like name calling. For the record I am neither a racist not a xenophobe, I'm not uneducated either and am so anti-authority that I'm completely unsusceptible to propaganda - I am, however, completely baffled by the mud slinging that is STILL going on by Remainers at all levels even now they've got to admit they lost the vote by more than a million...

Your potential leaders are resigning as fast as they can. Trying to lead the country at the moment would be a poisoned chalice. No-one would be able to keep the people together at the moment.
