pour one out for the homies in Gibraltar, for they are fucked
[QUOTE=DaCommie1;50581567]This spells the beginning of the end for the EU, and may spark another Scottish Independence referendum. Are they doing this by popular vote or by constituency? I imagine popular vote, since if it was constituency leave would have won long ago.[/QUOTE] I doubt that Westminster would allow another referendum. Doesn't matter if the SNP sweeps every seat, they need permission to hold one and they aren't getting it.
Bre-enter 2020!
[QUOTE=Silentfood;50581571]no, it just evolves to brexited[/QUOTE] that might actually be even worse
Im not convinced its the richest people affected, they hold the power to fire uk people and move to countries with less tax, or take away wage benefits ect from workers and use the reason because of the GBP drop.
so.. they can overturn the vote right?

I actually don't see how it necessarily follows that Scotland will now leave. This doesn't change the fact that the SNP failed to make a coherent economic case for independence, and a post-Brexit economic shitstorm could actually make it harder for Scottish independence supporters - their opponents would say "look at the shitstorm that happened from leaving the EU, and now you want to leave the UK??"
[QUOTE=FlashMarsh;50581569]why the hell would public sector workers lose their jobs The Tories have rejected Osbourne's austerity budget in case of Brexit and said they will vote against it so there is no chance of job losses for the public sector[/QUOTE] Well if all the financial sector moves out, that means less money will be coming in from tax, which means less money to pay for the public sector, which means the public sector has massive lay offs. On top of that we'll also have less investment, it's essentially just a big mess.
this is going to set a precedent for other countries to leave the EU
[QUOTE=Reagy;50581574]I'm really not enjoying watching this little counter. Also love how the guardian's already publishing shit saying "The British people have voted to leave the European Union in a historic referendum" like as if it's all over.[/QUOTE] Leave is 944K votes ahead. How could remain pull ahead?
So sorry to hear this. I hope it works out.
It has been chosen, we must respect the peoples will.

[QUOTE=RawrBullet;50581583]so.. they can overturn the vote right?[/QUOTE] Oh yeah even if leave or stay wins, the government can just decide to go fuck it in the end as we don't have any legislation to legally bind the referendum. Same with the Scottish one that happened a while ago.
People say this is the beginning of the end of the UK, its the beginning of the end of the EU.
The government legally [I]can[/I] overturn the referendum, but don't waste time entertaining the thought that that might happen

[QUOTE=mickers;50581581]Im not convinced its the richest people affected, they hold the power to fire uk people and move to countries with less tax, or take away wage benefits ect from workers and use the reason because of the GBP drop.[/QUOTE] That's up to the UK government to remedy. If they can replace the EU's business regulations with comparable ones in UK law, it won't make much of a difference. If they fail to, they could cripple paternity/maternity leave, labor rights, environmental protections, and all sorts of other regulations that the EU has and the UK doesn't. If the UK government fucks everything up in the next two years, it will be [i]bad[/i]. It's expected that foreign direct investment will drop 2.2% of GDP if single market access is renegotiated - but if it isn't, it can hit 10% of GDP. If the UK government manages to cock up the next two years and fail to get proper regulations in place and negotiate trade access to the rest of Europe, you guys will be hurting hard across all sectors of the economy. 100% up to the UK government to replace what the EU provided. If they fail, good fucking luck, prepare for a pretty major recession.
[QUOTE=smurfy;50581605]The government legally [I]can[/I] overturn the referendum, but don't waste time entertaining the thought that that might happen[/QUOTE] I don't expect them to do anything.
[QUOTE=YouWithTheFace.;50581596]are we seeing the sparks for Independence referendum part deux except this time independence wins?[/QUOTE] no, because they need permission from Westminster to hold a referendum and they aren't going to get it because the first was marketed as being 'once in a lifetime'. they would also probably lose again so they don't want it (there was very little support from the public for a second referendum in case of brexit in one poll i saw).
My favorite part about these threads is going back to the earlier pages and reading all the wrong posts now that I know the outcome.

We've only gone and fucking blown it.

Well that's a surprise. So what does this mean for the SNP? Could they wrangle another independence referendum in the next few years due to this?
