I suspect there will be far greater consequences than a shit exchange rate. Still, when you make your bed, you then have to lie in it.

Yes, it's going to be very 'interesting' to see the reaction from our former partners.

Gove is being put forward as Chief Negotiator.

Remain votes cast.
Tomorrow I will either be miserable but a bit wealthier. If we Remain I will be happy and who cares about anything else.
Nige will be pleased as he can stay on the Euro gravy train for a the indefinite future.

It's a bright shiny new day in the UK, everything fresh sunny and clean after the rains. What a perfect day for the UK to wake up to such good news

He did the right thing to resign. Question is who should take his place? Would be good to have Dan Hannan or Michael Gove.

I don't really think he had any choice, he backed the remain group, in fact led it, and parts of the UK disagreed to the extent that the remain people lost. So as leader he had to fall on his sword and go. I suspect that either Gove or Boris will take over. I can't see any treachery involved.

His campaign of deceit lies and unfounded fearmongering against his own country, was treachery in itself.
Though in fairness that was the weakness of the whole remain campaign as they never yet put forward a credible reason for staying in.

The main reason the remain campaign is in such shock and distributing tantrums all over the UK, is because they honestly believed that the majority wouldn't have the courage to vote leave, as it was 'safer' to remain in. Well, looks like the British have showed how unpredictable they really are, and how much they stand with the country their ancestors built and to pass on British culture to the next generations. I hope the 27 countries left in the EU get their own referendum vote, and a chance to go independent. Every country deserves a say in the way their country is run. It's not that we are against immigration or any other EU country and its people. We had to save our culture and the future of the U.K for the next generations of Brits. We wanted to govern our own rules that suit to our lifestyle. The pound may have fallen in just 4 hours, but let's look back at it in 4 years and see where we are. Sometimes in order to better yourself, you have to go it alone or you don't grow simple as.


WELL DONE TO EVERYONE THAT VOTED LEAVE.

The major problem that I forseee is that the UK negotiators will have to do something to protect the single market for our manufacturers etc. and that will mean joining the EEA, which in turn means accepting the 'freedom of movement' which has been the major thrust of the 'leavers' by telling people that leaving the EU will solve the migration problems that the UK is purported to have.
