Used democracy to ensure we retain our democracy.

I believe long term we will absolutely be better off, we have also exposed a couple of traits in Boris and Nigel that really should exclude them from running the show.

We need cameron and osbourne to stay in post. Otherwise would we prefer gove/boris/farage to be doing the negotiations. After all they are so experienced and do such great jobs......

The nest few years will see lots more turmoil, it looks like "we" have broken the seal on the status quo.....

So, does Brexit mean the end of the IVA and a return to the old way of registering kits?

But what is his role in life now? The UK is heading for independence, so his party (of 1) is now redundant.

I reckon he'll fade away in the near future.

The basic issue of being told what to do by an assembly of politicians in a different country.

Superficially it was immigration - fear that a whole load of refugees and migrants will flood into Britain. However, I can't see that things will change either way on that score.

However, for many people it was because the EU was heading rapidly towards becoming a "United States of Europe", which was something that Britain didn't sign up for when we originally joined. Also, the people with the power in Brussels - the EU Commissioners - are unelected and cannot be removed by democratic means.

It's a mess, whichever way you look at it - whether we'd chosen to remain or leave.

I struggle to voice a political opinion, but I have to say I think the UK has made the right choice to exit the EU. I suspect it'll be painful for a while, but we're already on the road and I do think other countries will follow one way or another.

It's a good thing I ordered my holiday Euro's a week ago at 1.30!!!

Looks like Cameron's out of here. Let's hope he takes Jeremy Hunt with him, perhaps then something good will come from this.

Just one thought- UKIP and Farage wanted to leave the EU. Does this mean they're going to close down the party on the basis of "job done"? Oh pleeeeeease! I like my TV and I get an almost irresistable urge to punch it when Farage is on their gurning like a slightly dim-witted Cheshire cat.

To me it's a sign that maybe the sheeple of the world might be ready to exert some common sense and begin to take back their countries.

I am not usually a political animal but I am worried for the future.

Unless we can get trade and workable immigration process deals done quick I fear for a number of industries.

The only reason Nissan, Toyota and Honda are in the uk is that they can sell cars to the rest of Europe without import taxes, will they stay if this changes.
Where will the next generation of aircraft come from, Airbus is a eu consortium, jaguar, tornado and typhoon are all eu collaboration, U.K. Can't afford to design and build the next generation on their own, buy USA ?
As for agriculture/nhs/hospitality, until we get realistic about personal ability (not everyone should/can got to university, we need a unskilled, skilled and proffessional workforce, all of which are equally important) and that there is a mix of skills and capability and therefore people needs to accept that manual labour is a valid and valuable occupation we will require imported labour willing to do these jobs for the foreseeable future.

IMO this is all compounded by having a parliament made up of career politicians that have no commercial or industrial experience compounded by the fact that les than 10 mp's have science or engineering qualifications. In the future, without Eu support, we will not be able to rely on the finance and service industries and the sooner the government realises that to grow the economy we need to buy raw material, make stuff with them and sell them outside the uk in order to prosper.

Sorry, Rant mode off.

That seems to be THE problem all over, not just in the UK.

Head line reads Turkeys Vote for Xmas.
Little England has just caused a global financial crisis and threatened the long term stability and security of the western world.

Next on the cards Scotland will break with the UK.

The whole & sole reason for Mr. F's existence has completely vanished, with the clear vote for Brexit. Sadly, I don't think he will.

I must admit I am shocked. It just goes to show how out of touch our government is with the wants of the average british citizen. The splits in the voting are very interesting, London essentially voted to remain with the rest of England voting to leave. Those people in the small towns and villages who have felt abandoned for a long time voted against the capital.

I am concerned about our future but if the government were more in touch with the little people then this could have been avoided. Most 'leave' voters I have spoken to are not concerned with trade, there concerned with immigration.

Both sides took a very extreme view of the consequences of voting for them or the other side. The truth will be somewhere between the two and, once the dust has settled, I doubt that we will be able to assign on a macro scale how well we do or otherwise as a country to this decision.

However, there will no doubt be winners and losers on a more local scale and that will bring out a whole load of 'I told you so's" from both sides. There will be loss of specific jobs as a result of this (including where its an excuse and not the real reason) and that will hit the individuals involved hard. There will probably be jobs created as well, but it will be harder to determine which ones these are.

Regardless of what people think about the balance of the money we paid to the EU and then got back, investment from the EU was targeted to some good things that I doubt that our government will continue to support to the same extent. For example, regional development in some of the most needy areas, and funding for R&D will now be exposed to austerity measures. That worries me.

At least in a couple of years time, if you want to work abroad, you will only need to go as far as Scotland!

I guess that most of us will just bumble on as usual. I just hope that the rifts that a 52% 48% vote has created can be healed.

THE issue for me is that the EU is run by a group of faceless unelected Eurocrats. As bad as one may think our politicians are at least they are democratically elected.

Closely followed by bonkers EU laws regarding straight bananas, cucumbers, etc!
