    ItΕxit ... are people finaly Fed Up

    First BrExit, then ObExit (not giving HillyClit a third Obummer term) and now "chaos' in Italy that could lead to the third largest EU economy departing the euro or even EU ... ItExit

    THREE stunning defeats for establishments in about six months

    Italy referendum: PM Matteo Renzi resigns after clear referendum defeat

    Italy wakes up on Monday to the threat of a banking crisis, political turmoil, and a group of anti-establishment populists banging on the doors of government. Eurozone beware and EU be warned. Italy is the euro currency's third largest economy and it's in for a bumpy ride. And there are more unpredictable votes to come in 2017: in France, Germany the Netherlands and perhaps here in Italy too.
    <snip>
    The referendum comes in the wake of the Brexit vote in the UK in June, and coincides with the rise of the anti-immigrant Front National in France and populist parties elsewhere. It also comes less than a month after the election of Donald Trump in the United States.

    Maybe if they listened when countries voted against further integration and expansion treaties but the eu ploughed ahead anyway they would not be in yet another crisis!

    I read that 2 out of 6 Germans want out of the EU. With France and Holland both having elections next year could be another couple of referendums on exiting.

    Burn it all down.
    Get out there in the game, don't sit up in the bleachers. That is the philosophy of pimps and preachers.

    Italy is used to this , they have had 63 Governents in the last 70 years , looks like it will be another caretaker govt until elections in 2017 or even 2018

    "obexit" is one of the most stupid things ever , I thought presidents could only stand two terms anyway ?

    Electing HillyClit would have been like a third Obummer term ... except he appears to be sober.
    So come 20 January 2017, Obexit will be 100%

    Given Hillary's presumption that it was her turn to be crowned Queen of the World, 'Obexit' is entirely appropriate. It was an upset of the Dem Establishment by the great unwashed masses. Thank goodness the Electoral College fulfilled its function.

    if Obama had been allowed a third term or the Dems had picked a less tainted candidate than Hillary , do you think we would have seen them same result , Obamas approval rating is still fairly high , over 50% I thought

    Anyway doesn't matter , still think it is a stupid Acronym , Brexit is catchy , none of the variations are

    With the current uncertainty in the EU, you would hope the Dutch voters won't be so apathetic come election time in 2017. 37% is an incredibly low turnout.

    Approval ratings now have the same credibility as election forecasts - zilch.
    Yes, it's too bad that Obexit doesn't have the same ring to it as Brexit, but the parallels are still there.

    Didn't the voters / Trump do the same to the GOP leadership during the primaries ?

    Obexit is just plain stupid

    Still perfectly happy with my country (Norway) voting no in the first place. Twice. Voted no myself in the second referendum in 1994.

    Too bad there's no cheap pun available for No (ruttin') way... Quitaly... Love it 555.
