Or is it about what an awful result this was and how unbearable responsibility is and maybe they should get some health benefits?PI think maybe they didn't realize that the U.K. leaving the E.U. could be a catalyst for a U.K. break up.

Article 50 - Good luck! And if that turns out to be too costly and burdensome, Boris Johnson and the Brexit bunch can always try Article 49 - Good luck on that one too! :) Don't get me wrong - I admire the courage, it's one big F-you to across the channel. But not sure it makes economic sense at this moment in time. And who knows this result might actually make the EU a less dysfunctional family.

So they've done that nicely. I should do the numbers to see how close they were to optimal.You are thinking like everyone else...with your twenty-four-hour-rolling-news head. There won't be other referenda for ages, if ever. By then the EU/UK situation will be well underway and the world will still be rotating on its axis. We'll all be worried about something else.P

Discussing this with middle class, middle aged people today it was clear that employees = Remain, self-employed/entrepreneurs = Leave. To them/us it was about what type of risks you were comfortable with or used to. To me this is a fun adventure.P

His English are a bit elementary, but he has the know-how to make the negative positive and vice versa.I only feel sad for Elizabeth. She was crowned as queen of an empire, and she will end ruling a country just a little bigger than Buckingham Palace. Actually, if Londoners are considering to leave UK she may end being a homeless queen.

She's head of the Commonwealth of a couple of billion people. The Commonwealth will surely be the starting point for the UK venturing back onto the world stage after decades of being held in captivity.P

If the U.K. falls apart you could always move to NY :) You may underestimating the amount of anger and discontentment among the general populace. Things may not go back to business as usual.

I've said elsewhere that my dream scenario was to Remain, then get Corbyn as PM. And I'd be off to either NYC or HI. Another dream shattered. P

Huh?All I know is that the UK for the last 43 years was like the spoilt misfit whinning kid in the EU family. When a member of the club demands a special treatment all the time, and then this member decides to depart from the club it can only be a good thing for the rest. A drag force is out. On the other hand, I really doubt being in Commonwealth, derives any meaningful and tangible benefits for the member states equivalent to those of EU.

franklin grahamQuote"We don?t know what the ‪#‎EUReferendum‬ vote means long-term, but I know that this is at least a temporary setback for the politicians in this country and around the world who want a one-world government and a one-world currency. The Bible speaks that one day this will take place. Join me in praying for all of those impacted and that Europe's leaders, as well as our leaders in the United States, will look to Almighty God for wisdom and discernment in these trying and complex times in which we live."
