    You would think that's a given now wouldn't you? How the mighty are fallen, Osbourne was a shoo in for PM before the last budget, he will be on the rock'n'roll by Christmas

    I'm fairly ignorant as to how markets work but would expect that to stabilise fairly quickly. Baht is holding up ok at the minute though, so maybe holidays will be ok?

    Pound lost 10% against the $. Also € lost.
    As Thai Baht follows the $ I guess most holidays got more expensive.
    Guess I could check France, Spain or even Greece

    President Trump will assure that Britain will not be forced to "the back of the que", as obama and hillary have suggested.

    Donald seems to appreciate independence and freedom more than those two muppets...and fuck globalization!

    It would be wonderful to enjoy the "special relationship" between the Yank's and Brit's again.

    Surely it can be argued that EEC functioned well before UK (and DK and IE), so it can be argued that EU will function just well without UK.
    One little problem ... When the joining was voted on in 1972 all was different and there was little concern about the finance draining states nor immigration and certainly not ISIS.
    UK is a major contributor to the state to state welfare system in the union.
    IMO UK was not a simple "came and left" event, but likely a devastating blow to EU.

    What is next ...
    I can see a modified EU nexus where UK will enter into a relationship that may look like a limited partnership strictly based on trade.
    Kind of like EEC.
    I can also see other countries raising similar referendums.
    Denmark and Sweden being next.
    The Netherlands should be next based on their highest outflow of money per capita, and after the UK (maybe DK and SE) departure that will become increasingly uncomfortable.
    France will hold for a while, but if DK, SE and NL leaves it too will have a referendum and if that is successful it will leave Merkel holding the money bag.
    She largely created the problem and her support will fade and EU will blow up.

    Never mind all this talk of markets and money, does this mean they can no longer tell me which stinky cheeses I can or cannot eat ?

    Trump probably can't spell queue. If there is a God ( and I have my doubts ) then I really, really hope He spares us a Trump/Johnson love in.

    Hope this gets thrown out....its done now just get on with it!

    Brexit: Petition for second EU referendum so popular the government site's crashing | UK | News | The Independent

    The 48% of voters who wished to Remain in the European Union are so mortified by the Leave result that a parliamentary petition calling for a second referendum has been set up.
    ‘We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based on a turnout less than 75% there should be another referendum,’ it reads.
    At the time of writing, the petition is difficult to access, presumably due to a surge of traffic. The count is at 55,000 right now and climbing at roughly a thousand signatures a minute.
    All petitions to the site that receive over 100,000 signatures must be considered for debate in Parliament, as was the case with the cannabis legalisation one.

    Whatever else happens this has been, to my simple mind, a great day for democracy. I voted remain but I honestly feel very proud to be British and be living in a country where what the people say matters.

    Seems to be the way it was split, lots of young people wanted to remain. 85% of 18-25 year old's wanted in. The people have spoken though.

    EDIT: You wanted out? Oh - misunderstood in my excitement
