    It's amazing how much people hate democracy. Been already invited to sign a petition and joint a protest for #bremain. And I'm going to be a **** for not taking part it. It sucks but it's democracy.

    The irony that people want an undemocratic referendum to fix a democratic referendum that they don't consider to be a democratic referendum because the democratic referendum didn't go the way they wanted it to. Democratic. @opta Mad Vlad

    Tbh democracy is just touted to make the average person feel like they have some control over the bigger issues in their life. Getting 30-60% of people to vote once every 5 years for a limited pool of people (the bigger parties control which people get the visibility these days) isn't really a true democracy - especially in a technology age where actually we could have everyone vote on every issue electronically.

    Corbyn on his way out..

    Thing is I actually think its a really good thing for the country that he leaves.

    My rational is:

    There has been rumours that a new tory leader may want to call a new general election quickly, to ligitimise their claim, and extend the conservative goverment.. after such a dramatic referendum, it would be perfectly justfied in doing so.. One of their big reasons was that they felt they could destroy corbyn in an election.. which is not to far off a safe bet.

    With corbyn leaving though, a new potential labour leader makes a general election a much more risky call for a new tory leader...

    I got a warning for calling people who wanted a second referendum morons.

    Any deal reached with Britain can't be easy, so that everyone else doesn't follow suit.

    ---------------

    I think the bit in bold is what I worry about.
    Its pathetic though isn't it? The attitude that Europe cannot possibly allow another model to succeed for fear of other realising an alternative may be preferable. Isn't that the exact view of Europe that Farage is pushing? An entity so undemocratic and self preserving that it will seek to preserve itself at the expense of the improvement of Europe. At a time where the continent is economically stagnating and facing military threats in the East and via terrorism domestically, Europe is going to turn its back on the 6th largest economy, one of the biggest military powers in the region and one of the most advances intelligence structures in the world. All to make a point.

    I don't really see why Remain supports are so worried anything. Surely without the UK dragging its heels the EU is going to glide towards its envisioned future and we can just re-join (minus all our opt outs) in 10-15 years anyway.

    Largest depreciation of any currency ever? Somehow doubt that claim without even checking it. War's, coups, massive natural disasters, all less significant than a EU exit?

    Also reading a lot about the FTSE's performance but seemingly no mention of the DAX or CAC...

    Apparently people are signing up up to a petition to become individual members of the EU.

    Fizzel Should be stating that the pound fell to its lowest value in 31years.

    The Euro will take a hit, but with the mass number of people buying Euros due to the uncertainty and those going on holiday means it won't be as significant.
