And just to top it all, Cameron has handed in his jotters.

Personally I don't agree with Cameron taking sides on this campaign. He should have let his top ministers handle the Remain campaign. He has a duty to the country to take it forward no matter what the decision of the electorate was.
It was obvious that if he lost the referendum his position was untenable. Pillock!

Cameron's political vanity caused this by offering the referendum as part of his election campaign and he is now abdicating responsibility for sorting out the shit storm he has caused.

Polls show that 58% of people who voted for Brexit will be dead in the next 16 years, well done you old twats, you have screwed us all 😡

How can they possibly know that? Were the votes not anonymous?

well honestly, after reading further into brexit and all the reporting, i honestly (quite confidently) thought it would be to remain albeit a close fight. looking at news live as it was being counted was quite shocking. EU or no EU, i reckon it'll affect everyone, no matter which side you're on. no country is perfect just based on whether or not they join the union. it all boils down to leadership, policy making and the person in charge. if he/she is good enough steering the ship in the right direction, the outcome of brexit wouldn't even matter.

though i'm keen to see what they path taken now would be...

You can all do joints and joint ventures in and from my living room.
This sounds like reason enough to start IH-Belgium.  ;D

He was a dead man walking as soon as the result was announced, Gav ( @Megatron1505 ).  Right wing Tory knives were out for him and he'd have been pushed had he not jumped.

Regardless of the economic and political arguments for and against the UK's membership of the EU, it's the cultural implications that most concern me.  In the eyes of Europe, I don't want to be lumped in with the vast majority of those that voted to leave - and I suspect the rest of the 48% who voted to remain strongly feel the same way.  I feel like I have way more in common with most of those that live in cities across Europe than I do with most provincial Brexiteers.

The UK is today more divided than it's ever been.  But then perhaps this referendum result is just explicit confirmation that this has been the case for quite some time.

Totally agreed @GingerMagician , Cameron just had the biggest public outing as a man who cannot deliver on the most major political issues.

The country is certainly divided, and this will probably spell the end of the U.K. in the next few years. My town had the highest out vote in the East Midlands and I know that the issue that vote was made on is immigration .

What other parts of England don't seem to understand is that immigration does badly affect some areas more than others, Boston on Lincolnshire for example. This is mainly due to the work available there (fruit picking) which the lazy locals don't want to do.

We had the same here with Sports Direct, 2000 jobs advertised with only a few hundred applicants from the local community. They don't understand that the jobs still need doing even if they refuse to do them for minimum/ living wage.

I voted in, but I understood the arguments locally for voting out. The country is fractured and it has been for a long time, there is disparity of wealth, resources and amenities when you get outside of London and other major cities. That is what the real vote was against in my opinion. A misguided protest of sorts brought about by a disconnect from the political elite.

pretty much what Singapore is right now. locals whinging non stop about foreigners taking over the local jobs, didn't matter what industry, because of the elitist mindset brought upon the society during the 80s and 90s. they whinge of influx and how there isn't enough jobs available or how crowded the place would be etc..

but what those whinging can't seem to grasp is that these are the jobs the locals themselves don't want to do cause they feel it's beyond their "status".

Very sad day for the world. This outcome affects us over here as well. Makes me nervous about November.
