Oh, jolly good. Well done us.

 

Now we no longer have to worry about having the monstrous evil of socialized medical care when we're travelling in Europe. We can pay for private health insurance! Now we no longer have to face the horror of our sons and daughters spending time abroad on ridiculous Erasmus schemes which allow us to study anywhere on this benighted, awful continent and meet, get to know and even fall in love with dreadful foreigners who don't "share our values."

================= :lol:

Scotland

 

As expected, Scottish voters were much more in favor of staying in the EU than the broader U.K. population, and backed remain by 62 percent to 38 percent for leave. Less than two years after the last referendum on its membership of the U.K., the Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has already called for a further vote.

 

and

Sinn Fein's chairman, Declan Kearney, said in a statement: "This outcome tonight dramatically changes the political landscape here in the north of Ireland, and we will be intensifying our case for the calling of a border poll."

 

"The British government as a direct result have forfeited any mandate to represent the interests of people here in the north of Ireland in circumstances where the north is dragged out of Europe as a result of a vote to leave."

i saw one guru on CNBC said that " they voted more than they wanted , there won't be breat briton anymore, only got smaller poorer england in future".

but i do respect those redneck pommies ....just hope they understand that so call the "de-mocracy" some times can be "damn crazy", do they willing to pay the price for this "freedom"?? :unsure: guess we will find out soon enough!!

Democracy wins and Brexit are told they didn't know what they were voting for. So lets have another vote and change the rules.

 

"The final result showed 17.4 million people voted Leave, while 16.1 million people voted Remain.

 

Since then, a petition has been created by William Oliver Healey, calling for the "Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60 per cent based [on] a turnout of less than 75 per cent, there should be another referendum".

 

Turnout for the EU referendum was 72.2 per cent"

So, let me get this straight:

The "Leave" vote was strongest in rural England. Now that they've won, they want Brussels to bend over backwards to give them preference over everybody else?

 

OK, history shows by how much the morons dominate EU Bureaucracy. But could anyone be that idiotic to reward a bunch of renegades that burn their membership cards in the most acrimonious manner, by giving them preference over the remaining members? Isn't it far more likely that the EU negotiators will demand British contributions remain at least at membership levels, even before they begin talks about new arrangements?

 

As to the rest of the world, every country will now need to start new negotiations with the UK, since trade will no longer be covered by previous treaties with the Common European Market. If that doesn't lead to those trading partners demanding better deals from little Britain, compared to Greater Europe, the World is even madder than I'm already convinced it is.

However, I half expect our current Government to abandon the Australian people in favour of English Upper Class. The bulk of the Lib-Nat coalition seem to care more for their British ancestry than their ethnically-diverse Australian constituency. I find it also doubtful whether the Opposition can muster the brains and courage to turn it into a belated Election Issue.

Another view from the British Steel Industry:

Gareth Stace, director of UK Steel: a challenge "like no other"

"The decision to leave the European Union will send shockwaves across the UKÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s steel industry. Our sector is well versed in having challenges thrust upon it, but itÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢s clear that this is like no other.

 

"It is now more essential than ever to create the right business conditions in the UK that allow the steel industry to survive, invest and thrive. This will ensure that our vital supply chains, such as defence, automotive and construction, can rely on the production of steel in the UK so we are self-sufficient and can never be left at the mercy of others.

 

"Government now needs to fully and finally tackle head on the uncompetitive electricity and policy costs that have historically hindered the growth of steel producers and seen thousands of high-skilled jobs lost over the last year. We need to see all major projects, from HS2 to Hinkley Point to airport expansion, all using British Steel instead of procuring from foreign companies that offer no social value to the UK and its communities and economy.

 

"Government can now match words with actions and take the lead in dealing with subsidised exports, most notably form China, that are slowly destroying steel making in the UK. It must come up with clear and concrete actions to ensure that we can still trade with the EU, while at the same time ensuring that trade tariffs have the teeth to guard against dumping of Chinese steel. An exceptionally challenging ask, but one the whole UK steel industry stands ready to support."

 

What arrogance!
Kick the Chinese in the shins for daring to sell stuff at lower prices, yet demand everybody buy British goods at inflated prices. Moreover, his whinge about "
uncompetitive electricity and policy costs
"
seems to point back into the dirty old days of coal-fired generators, and stuff the environment.

 

What does he expect to be done about legally binding supply contracts covering renewable energy, current construction projects, etc? Has he even contemplated how other nations will take any attempts to break trade agreements and delivery orders? Not to mention the impact high British steel prices would have on the cost and efficiency of public works projects.

 

 

If his opinion should carry, I predict a long period of economic misery for Little Britain.
