LONDON — Britain has voted to leave the European Union, a historic decision sure to reshape the nation’s place in the world, rattle the Continent and rock political establishments throughout the West.

Not long after the vote tally was completed, Prime Minister David Cameron, who led the campaign to remain in the bloc, appeared in front of 10 Downing Street to announce that he planned to step down by October, saying the country deserved a leader committed to carrying out the will of the people.

The stunning turn of events was accompanied by a plunge in the financial markets, with the value of the British pound and stock prices plummeting.

The margin of victory startled even proponents of a British exit. The “Leave” campaign won by 52 percent to 48 percent. More than 17.4 million people voted in the referendum on Thursday to sever ties with the European Union, and about 16.1 million to remain in the bloc.

A significant setback for the Globalists.

Uh-oh: France, Italy and the Netherlands….what about us?

    It’s Obama’s fault!

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      Now that you mention it.

    • NewFormatSux says:

      Obama went to London to lecture the Brits about how bad it will get if they leave. He would force them to ‘the back of the queue’.

      At that point, Remain was leading in polls. But just like when he went to London to bring home the Olympics, his visit failed, and Leave took a lead. Remain forces recovered and were leading in the polls over the last week, until Donald Trump appeared.

    HA what a joke…
    see the following
    as compared to

    this will be interesting to see how it plays out, as the eu was being pushed to be americanized by us big businesses

    Notice the similarities between the EU and the US?

    The EU formed for mutual defense and inter-commerce between the states,
    The US Federal Government formed for mutual defense and inter-commerce between the states,

    The EU overreaching it’s mandate and intruding into every corner of their lives?
    The US Federal Government overreaching it’s mandate and intruding into every corner of our lives?

    Donald Trump declaring victory.

    England leaving over autonomy.
    Texas next??

    • NewFormatSux says:

      David Cameron attacked Trump for his comments on Muslims, saying his proposal was “divisive, stupid and wrong,”

      Now Cameron is out by Election Day.

    • Roy Bean says:

      TEXAS was never really a full state! TEXAS is STILL a “REPUBLIC”! The reason the U.S claims Texas as a State is by the simple fact that the Texas Constitution makes their State Legislators renew their “contract” with the U.S. Federal government (aka “The Union”) every so often — usually every 4 years but is really left up to Texas legislators to decide how often they do it.

      … Think about it. There’s a damn good reason they call it the “Lone Star” state.

      (Just a little FYI I’m sure even many Texans don’t even know.)

  5. Daniel F X Dravot says:

    To some degree the Brexit vote may be yet another Obama failure. He threatened the UK with trade sanctions should the vote to exit the EU succeed. Apparently he felt that the British people were not sufficiently intelligent to make this decision by themselves. Further, I suspect that his obvious contempt for the British voters may have shifted a not insignificant number of Undecided voters into the Brexit camp. The implicit message is that Britain did not want advice from a narcissistic punk psychopathic man-child, laughing stock and failed racist clown.

    • Ah_Yea says:

      I saw an interview with Obama today about the Brexit.

      Funny how the interviewer didn’t happen to mention Obama’s threat.

      It’s certain his threat was a significant contributing factor, and most likely contributed the push that got Britain to Brexit.

      So, if Obama kept his filthy mouth shut Britain might still be in the EU!

      • NewFormatSux says:

        Obama didn’t want the bust of Churchill, but he wanted the Brits in the EU?

    • Rick Perry's Favorite Hemorrhoid says:

      I disagree. I think Mr. Obama is a very successful racist clown.

  6. Hmeyers says:

    The Remain camp’s behavior and scaremongering backfired.

    Obama, the IMF, virtually every international organization was telling the UK the horrors of voting to Leave.

    Why can’t globalists just Fuck Off?

    Globalists enrich the elites and stomp on the rights of people and keep forcing bad things down their throats.

  7. McCullough says:

    Nobody in the MSM was talking about this yesterday, I guess they just assumed it would never happen, now it’s all doom and gloom. IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!!

    I need more popcorn.

    • Hmeyers says:

      Nobody thought it would happen.

      One of the leaders of the Leave camp conceded defeat right after the polls closed at 10:03 PM.

      Recent polling had shown Remain to be leading narrowly. And conventional wisdom was that the undecided vote would lean towards the “safe” thing to do (stay the course).

      • NewFormatSux says:

        What happened was the campaign by the Remainers was ramped up, declaring that those who supported Exit are racist filth. The Exit voters started lying to pollsters.

        • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

          Thats a nice point NFS….evidently a polling defect that often happens in the USA ?

          The main reason for the assumption that Remain would win is that the Exit folks looked incredibly stoopid when having zero response to the challenge to NAME A SINGLE ECONOMIC EXPERT that agrees leaving would be good for the UK economy.

          It is quite clear that many people did vote for exit as a protest vote thinking Remain would win.

          Is this game………poker, dominoes, chess……or is it a once in a generation referendum? I get confused at times.

          • NewFormatSux says:

            Who knew liberals cared so much about Wall Street over freedom?

            Commentary on Brexit:
            “We got here because we switched from a policy of Americanism – focusing on what’s good for America’s middle class – to a policy of globalism, focusing on how to make money for large corporations who can move their wealth and workers to foreign countries all to the detriment of the American worker and the American economy.”

          • Ah_Yea says:

            I would love to know who made that comment. Someone who got it right!

    Micro management, fraud, wealth transfer to the AlreadyTooRich appears to be unavoidable in the formation of Super States able to compete with USA/China.

    but War is a good thing to avoid…..next time around.

    • NewFormatSux says:

      They didn’t tear down a fence, they put one up.

      Got any more non sequitur cliches to throw in there?

    All the pearl clutching on Twitter from the PC generation referring to the “olds” stealing their future is hilarious. Microagressions everywhere, safe spaces invaded. The hipsters are revolting.

    Nice rubber stamp critique Pedro: totally unconnected to anything else posted.

    Its all you got.

    To be effective: any system must have elements of socialism and capitalism. To deny one over the other is just plain stoopid.

    Are you that stoopid Pedro??? I don’t even think so…..unless caught up in the moment or not allowed to be vacuously vague.

    Prove me wrong:……………………………………….. GO!!!

    • Hmeyers says:

      Pedro is wrong but may eventually understand. But how does calling him names help you communicate?

      Anyway … more interesting note …

      One of the characteristics of globalism is rich people berating working class people as rubes while those same people suffer under their policies.

      And try to pressure their opposition with the media which they own (like all the “Sanders Drop Out” pressure articles and people on TV like even in mid-May when he was winning many states or even after Nevada.)

      It’s rather callous and jackassed.

      I like cold weather, I wonder if Canada is less fucked than the USA.

      • NewFormatSux says:

        Also, the AP drops a ‘nomination is over’ story just before California goes to vote. A close look at the story reveals they had it planned for days, before they had the superdelegate votes on which the story is based. Well coordinated with Team Hillary.

        In fairness, you are the rube for thinking Sanders was serious. All he wanted to do was make some speeches.
        If he had acted like Trump and played hardball, threaten to run independent if he is not the nominee, then the Dems would go with him. Even now, he could threaten to primary the superdelegates who vote for Hillary.

        For that matter, Sanders doesn’t have to agree. Why don’t you start such an operation?

        • Hmeyers says:

          I really can’t make a determination of whether or not Sanders was serious. Only he knows.

          I still don’t know if Trump is serious.

          He said several months ago he’d be willing to spend a billion dollars on his campaign.

          I’m not one to advocate wasting money to no effect and I don’t think negative ads against him will do much more to harm his reputation than he does all by himself.

          But once September comes, he will have to open up his pocketbooks.

          He also needs a ground game and he doesn’t seem to have one.

          So ….

          • NewFormatSux says:

            Thing is, YOU could probably make Sanders the nominee. How much time is there between now and the convention?
            He has so many followers, a credible threat can be made to individual seats. You took out Joe Lieberman, how hard would it be to take out a lower level person?

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        Why post what I actually think of Pedro?

        Because treating him as a thinking human being did not work over the course of years.

        Sanders is a die hard purist believing that certain facts and values are important to bring/maintain in politics. Right or Wrong….fact is….if you want to win the Democratic Primary, that activity requires a different set of facts and values.

        I assumed Sanders was DEAD when he took email gate off the table. But he was probably dead anyway not having actively run for President for the previous 20 years: aka the non-white vote for Clinton. “Fair Enought” as THAT is the game like it or not.

        Trump got into the race to build his name recognition. He’s as surprised as L Ron Hubbard that anyone believed his BS. But hey….if they are going to believe….why not take advantage of them??

        Trumps failure to Pivot is much like Sanders failure to play the game with some different nuances==but neither ready for prime time.

        Yea, verily.
