    Now is not a time for puerile/jubilant triumphalism. Instead, we must focus on dampening the fires of hysteria, restoring confidence, reuniting the nation behind a positive vision of a prosperous future UK, and collectively taking the country forward in a calm, considered, and responsible spirit

    This means holding politicians well and truly to account, going forward, and ensuring that we mitigate risk and ward off the circling vultures – preventing them from capitalising on/worsening societal conditions e.g. in terms of rights, freedoms, inequality, spatial deprivation, and division

    Whichever way we voted – rich or poor, young or old, urbanites or rural folk, North, South, East, or West – and whatever our reasons for doing so, it now falls to each and every Brit to make the most of our revitalised Democratic powers, for the common good and in the national interest

    We will pause before changing our leadership and effecting withdrawal under Article 50; let’s each and every one of us support the public/private/third sectors in making the most of this time by steadying the ship and charting a sensible course through uncharted waters

    Probably not - the changes to immigration, if there are any substantial ones, are unlikely to apply retrospectively.

    Now its time to back peddle and make excuses when Scotland/Northern Ireland leave us, and when we lose the very 'sovreignty' that you people were trying to re-gain :rolleyes:

    I agree, instead of sulking because you didn't get what you wanted, or jacking off your bregos (c wot i did ther?), the discussion in where to go from here needs to start occurring.

    Fine, Scotland might well leave. Then that needs to taken into consideration, but the rest of the UK isn't going anywhere. Leaving the EU is just the beginning of the discussion.
