Brexit and 'what if'.

A GREAT result: the opposite to what the pundits predicted just a few hours ago. They screwed up the same as they did at the General Election.

Now the EU itself has a MASSIVE problem, thanks partly to one idiot called Juncker.

I voted to stay, but could easily have voted the other way.

It is an opportunity for a political land grab. I think it is probably necessary for us all to become rather more involved.

A great result! FWIW, I never would have voted to leave the Common Market that I voted to join.

Unfortunately it is not worth a lot.

It is good fun to put two fingers up at those in power, but it does not actually get us anywhere.

We have to make what we can of the opportunities ahead.

Scotland and Northern Ireland have both voted to stay, so how is that going to work? The question was raised early on in the campaign, but AFAIK it was never properly answered.

I see EU leader comments are the political equivalent of a Berlin Wall. "just because they are leaving doesn't mean you are all allowed to "

It was a referendum of the United Kingdom. That is how it works, unless any constituent part of the UK ceases to be such.

Its quite interesting when you look at the data.. Scotland and NI had low turn-out compared to the rest of the country.

My own view is this boiled down to competition for jobs and services #1

Your view was that in a vote between black and white you voted black thinking it meant pale grey. Well you got black.
