I believe that today marks the absolute final last gasp of the empire. It's truly gone. Never to return.

The romans had the same problem. It took them a few hundred years to finally realise they were finished. I hope it doesn't take that long for England to come to grips with it.

I suppose it won't really matter anyway, because England will be just England now. Nothing more, nothing less. Jolly little England. Charming place to visit. Like, say, Norway...

So much for Armageddon

A Prime Minister resigned. The £ plummeted. The FTSE 100 lost significant ground.
But then the £ rallied past February levels, and the FTSE closed on a weekly high: 2.4% up on last Friday, its best performance in 4 months.

President Obama decided we wouldn't be at the 'back of the queue' after all and that our 'special relationship' was still strong.
The French President confirmed the Le Touquet agreement would stay in place.
The President of the European Commission stated Brexit negations would be 'orderly' and stressed the UK would continue to be a 'close partner' of the EU.
A big bank denied reports it would shift 2,000 staff overseas.
The CBI, vehemently anti-Brexit during the referendum campaign, stated British business was resilient and would adapt.
Several countries outside the EU stated they wished to begin bi-lateral trade talks with the UK immediately.

If this was the predicted apocalypse, well, it was a very British one.

It was all over by teatime. Not a bad first day of freedom.

Seems Common Sense prevails here as well, despite all the threats that we were going to get a bloody nose.

Cameron red-faced after German official says Brussels WILL trade with Britain after Brexit

DAVID Cameron and George Osborne’s economic scaremongering over Britain’s potential exit from the European Union has been laughed off by a senior German official.

As always, the only poll to matter is the one where people actually vote.

As we have now seen.

Default re: Post EU Referendum

I would like to congratulate Nigel Farage on this most remarkable victory in the EU referendum. He, more than any other British politician, was responsible for the Tories calling the referendum, and he and his party, UKIP, have worked tirelessly over many years for Britain’s independence. This glorious day, 24th June 2016, will go down in history as the moment the British people finally regained their country from the grip of a dysfunctional organisation in Brussels.

Mister Farage, leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, has worked tirelessly in the face of adversity to bring about Britain’s independence from the Union. He has shown remarkable restraint and courage over the years and his unstinting devotion to Britain and the British people has finally been rewarded with the highest accolade possible: Independence Day.

Congratulations, Mister Farage, on this remarkable, no, stunning, victory that has shaken the Union to its core. History will remember you as the only politician who had the effrontery to look Brussels in the eye and say, NO. I thank not only you but all those millions of hard working low paid British people who voted on that momentous night of 23rd June to finally, after years of wrangling, make Britain a fully independent nation once again.

We are freeing ourselves from the rotten to the core, unelected Mafioso in Brussels who care not a jot for ourselves or anything we stand for, as long as they get their grubby paws on our hard earned cash to use in their favourite pastimes of throwing it into black holes or continuing down the road with Project Fail.

What a wonderful, wonderful day.

Independence Day !



We have an unexpected spring in our steps this morning, and many fellow passengers from several countries have congratulated the Brits through us on the result.

Er, Boris is one of the downtrodden, ignored, and disrespected "ordinary people"?
