    Well put.

    Let's set about forging an outward-looking trading nation, with truly accountable legislators and government, and not wallow in self-pity and fling blame and hate all over the place.

    But let's just make sure none of the poor Commonwealth countries join in, right?

    55% voted to remain part of the UK, knowing that the referendum was coming and that we'd possibly vote to leave the EU

    What you mean is that the SNP don't want to be (so what's new?). Po-faced Sturgeon and her sour-grapes cronies can bog off

    Northern Ireland will want to hold an independance referendum
    I'm afraid that this statement betrays scanty knowledge of NI politics m'dear

    Londoners too want to hold a referendum on London independence
    How many Londoners?

    Do you think, as I do, that we should have a Tory leadership contest, a General Election (in which parties outline what they want*) and then trigger/ ignore article 50?

    *presumably

    Tories- leave EU, stay in single market
    UKIP- leave both
    Lib Dem- remain in the EU
    Labour- uh, um, can you give us a bit longer?

    (Would you vote Tory or UKIP in such a scenario?)

    Also, what do you think about this?

    We wouldn't want the wrong people to have a vote - just like the Leave people managed to make sure that several million British citizens were excluded from the referendum.

    Does this mean I'm gonna lose all my international friends who are from Europe
    Yes. They will be rounded up and sent to Turkey, as part of a bizarre EU attempt to mitigate the Migrant Crisis

    "Britannia unite" Northern Ireland and Scotland think differently
    When it comes to the EU, clearly, when it comes to British unification, possibly, but they also know which way their bread is buttered

    Do not insult history by referring to the referendum results as 'Independence Day'. How revolting.

    Indeed Foo. FTSE100 is up at 6539. Last year it was decreasing. And Carney hasn't even injected any QE yet .....

    And let's just ignore that the England is (arguably) able to take such a stance due to Remaim-voting London
