I'm glad it's over; what a dreary and mean-spirited campaign.

It is definitely good for Germany but I'm not happy 'cause what is good for Germany is not always good for ze Germans. Especially thouse of foreigh descent.

Quote Most of those working full- or part-time voted to remain, for example, while most of those who are not working wanted to leave. More than half of those on a personal pension voted to leave, a figure that rose to two-thirds of those on a state pension. Some 55% of those who own their homes outright voted to leave.The older the voter, the more likely they were to vote to leave: 60% of those aged 65 or more voted to leave, while nearly three-quarters of 18-to-24-year- olds voted to remain.A large majority of those whose formal education ended at secondary school level voted to leave, while 67% of those with a university degree and 64% with a higher degree voted to remain. More than four-fifths of those voters still in full-time eduction voted to remain.Among those voters describing themselves as white, 53% voted to leave. More than two thirds of Asian voters and almost three-quarters of black voters wanted to remain. Some 58%t of voters who described themselves as Christian voted to leave, while 70% of Muslims voted to remain.Analysis of voting patterns according to occupation showed that the so-called AB voters - people engaged in professional and managerial work - voted 57% to 43% in favour of remaining in the EU, while C1s - clerical and junior managerial workers - were divided evenly and C2DEs - skilled or unskilled white-collar and manual workers and those receiving benefits - voted overwhelmingly in favour of Brexit.Ashcroft?s poll also showed that the majority of voters thought the remain campaign would win, including among those who voted to leave.

I guess in the near future United Kingdom will be less United, and Great Britain, wont be that Great any more. Populistic rhetorics have a price though....

Everyone wants instant gratification. The media encourages this. People have little self awareness otherwise they'd know that most of them won't care about all this in a few weeks. (Unless WWIII does break out, or the plague of locusts/end of civilisation really does happen.)P

QuoteOriginally posted by: AnalyticalVegahttp://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/i-real ... 0361.htmlI haven't read the story. But is it about morons who are so stupid they shouldn't be allowed near a sharp pencil never mind being allowed to vote? Or is it about what an awful result this was and how unbearable responsibility is and maybe they should get some health benefits?P

P.S. As a side benefit it would force campaigners to be honest so their supporters can correctly answer the test questions!
