Oh it just keeps getting worse, this is depressing.
[QUOTE=Camundongo;50580278]If Leave do win, I could easily see a new Scottish referendum in the near future at this point - Remain is thrashing Leave up there at the moment.[/QUOTE] This will only be possible if it's a significant remain vote in Scotland but leave win.
[QUOTE=mickers;50580229]fuckin basildon [t]http://i.imgur.com/lGE3S5g.jpg[/t][/QUOTE] Take it from someone who had to stay in basildon briefly last year; it is a horrible place and brexit or not its going to remain horrible.
Leave 100K lead. The night is still young, but FUCK.
Today I learned there was an Egyptian frog deity called Kek.

Well, leave breached 1 million votes. Still too early, but interesting.
Maybe if the Remain campaign didn't spend its time trying to fill the UK's people with the fear of hellfire and damnation this would be smoother. Said this before with the Yes/No vote in Scotland, trying to scare and threaten people made things 100% worse.
Dat City of London result. Shame there's only something like 7,000 voters living there, but hey I'll take it.
Oh yes.

Both sides were as bad as eachother.
I'm still not really sure how leaving the EU would benefit the UK, or everyone who lives inside of it. There was just so much nonsense and shitflinging from both sides.
[QUOTE=Ctrl;50580305]Leave 100K lead. The night is still young, but FUCK.[/QUOTE] Was literally just about to post this. I predicted it would be a minority leave victory, but was always hoping I was wrong I mean I get it's still early to predict it but this isn't looking good.

it was neck and neck earlier but leave has a big lead now, not looking good :/
Swansea vote Leave - that's a bad sign, right?
[QUOTE=HazzaHardie;50580343]it was neck and neck earlier but leave has a big lead now, not looking good :/[/QUOTE]There's still something like 38 million votes to be announced.

Both sides. [t]http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WP0ud0kTWno/VcJVzUrnGpI/AAAAAAAAEro/0aRRGD1VLpo/s1600/SweatMan1.png[/t] I don't want to sleep with it being this close.
London's going to have to go nuclear for Remain to turn this around

Leave are just as bad, if not worse, at this

[QUOTE=Camundongo;50580348]Swansea vote Leave - that's a bad sign, right?[/QUOTE]The running theme so far seems to be areas that were expected to be pro-remain have either had smaller leads or gone to leave on a knife's edge; predictions beforehand haven't held particularly well. [QUOTE=HazzaHardie;50580357]I know that but it's a little bit scary[/QUOTE]True, this has been a fairly interesting referendum so far, as far as prediction errors are concerned.
[QUOTE=smurfy;50580367][media]https://twitter.com/bbclaurak/status/746147476017655814[/media][/QUOTE] To be fair Farage kinda conceded like 20 mins into counting. Night is still young..
Thankfully my constituency, North Down, saw sense and won remain.
What I think this referendum and the last general election have shown is that a lot of the polling companies in the UK are apparently pretty bad at their jobs.
[QUOTE=Camundongo;50580388]What I think this referendum and the last general election have shown is that a lot of the polling companies in the UK are apparently pretty bad at their jobs.[/QUOTE] The polling for this referendum was all over the place and should always have been taken with a few spoonfuls of salt
[QUOTE=Camundongo;50580388]What I think this referendum and the last general election have shown is that a lot of the polling companies in the UK are apparently pretty bad at their jobs.[/QUOTE] It's due to the way they poll, particularly with online polls it's mostly young people who take part so the older generation doesn't get proper representation in the polls, which results in weird surprises like this.
Vince Cable has chosen an interesting night for party politics in an attempt to oust the conservative government.. [editline]24th June 2016[/editline] Also I would love to know the turn out based on age etc but I am 99% sure its not possible?
