    All this is fine by me. But they voted to be part of the UK.
    Good luck to SNP trying to make such a plea to the rest of the British people. Nicola is not serious at all.

    It's not how it works. Scotland is not Chechnya no matter how hard Merkel's puppet tries.

    we never said we are ... but the UK is finished the powers at be in the UK now realise this ... it is the end of the UK and a swift kick in the stane poke for Nato

    It's better to carefully plan the kick in that particular area because the idea is to hit square and with enough force to make the contents of that area hang out of the gentleman's ears.

    Great article

    The EU "is in trouble for two reasons. First, it places utopian dreams of cooperation above the reality of nationalism. People want at least the illusion that they control their own fate. The EU has pretended this deep need does not exist, or that it can be wiped away with glittering phrases and promises.

    The second reason the Maastricht project collapsed is the EU itself. It is run by a corps of unelected bureaucrats, many of them unconnected to traditional society and contemptuous of public opinion."

    At this point that Merkel clone is nothing short of Sakhasvili, EU flags everywhere and no brains.
    She is quite mentally challenged. Independence but member of EU running deficits like us back in the good old days.

    Think you are underestimating things. Yesterday saw the largest number of UK voters turn out to vote to date, possibly for ever, so important was it. It was not even close, forget percentages, roughly 1,300,000 more people voted out than in.

    In many ways some of the EU, including most of the Commission in Brussels, only wanted us in for our money and world stature. Once we were in they hated it, we are just too different in terms of our Law and history. Bit like the nuisance child at a party. Now we have decided, that is it, they won't stop us.

    The EU have said today that they want us out quick, after all, the last thing they need whilst they are trying to save the rest of it is a long running UK sore. The official timescale is out within 2 years of giving Article 50 notice, but that time is mainly to allow for negotiations. It could be faster, much faster if both sides want it. In particular, the UK Parliament can reverse the original 1972 Act after which all subsequent Acts based on it will fall, removing virtually at a stroke any obstacles in UK Law. Obviously not quite as simple as that as there would be a lot of administrative loose ends to sort.

    Yesterday we changed the World's future, some say it will have a bigger effect over the next few years on more people than any previous one day event in history. Our decision probably made Trump the next President much more certain, which is brilliant as the last thing the World needs is Hilary. It is also possible that it will start the Great Recession as the vast debt in the West is unwound, or at least given the World's central banks someone to blame. It has already had a big effect on financial markets, everywhere but especially in Europe. That was the earthquake, the aftershocks will roll on for a while yet.

    After having lived & worked for so many years in the UK it's clear to me that despite what the bleeding heart left liberals have to say the UK chose to leave EU because of just one issue - IMMIGRATION

    Brits are tired of immigration from Asia, Africa and of late Eastern Europe and they want to put a stop to it. Fact still remains that these same immigrants were coming into the UK even before UK became a part of the EU and that's primarily because Britain had these same two corrupt mainstream parties.

    I hope more & more EU states like Holland, Netherland, Italy choose to leave the EU.

    As to the discussion on Scotland, I think the SNP has lost sight of reality in their desperate attempt to become an independent sovereign state.

    Do they really regard being in effect a vassal state or province within the EU as being that after the UK has had to vote out to regain it? Are they that desperate for the money they think they will get out of the EU?

    The dream has been hit, probably fatally, by the three pincer movements of:
    - crashed oil revenue destroying their budget without huge cuts in spending, this is on top of the loss of the England subsidy to Scotland
    - the EU facing the loss of £10B a year in funds from the UK causing huge and deep problems
    - the EU looking likely to implode
    - the EU not having time to even consider Scotland on top of its other problems above plus immigration and Turkey.

    It might have been possible 20 years ago, but now?

    Not quite, we can, to a degree, stop immigration from outside the EU. It was the inability to stop unlimited immigration from the EU that was the biggest nail in the coffin, there were others but that was, as you say, the big one.

    Congratulations to England for their win in referendum to leave EU. This will have huge long lasting consequences in Europe as EU will fall apart in coming years. German and French people will soon kick out Merkel and Hollande from their palaces and we could expect in coming years referendums in Netherland, France, Italy, Greece and maybe some more states to leave EU, what will finish EU as such. It will not be only EU, which will fall apart, but also some states as well UK will cease to exist and we will see independent England, independent Scotland and independent Wales and united Ireland. But also Spain will fall apart, most probably Italy as well and we will see independent Venice Republic again. In time to 2020 Europe will change dramatically. Ukraine will be also divided in Ukraine and Novorussia. Those global shifts will bring to increasing of power of Eurasian Economic Union, to which new states will join, like Novorussia and some Balkan states like Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bulgaria. Death of this EU does not mean, that European states will not join together again. They will, but it will be a totally new project based on totally new fundaments not to repeat old mistakes from today EU.

    No, that's possibly the EU, but much later on. Spain and Belgium much sooner.

    The usual Brussels' lackeys (SNP & Sinn Fein) came on TV to make a point, but I don't think the British public cares. The UK is pretty united as it is. England, Wales, over half of Scotland and N. Ireland are going nowhere as far as I can see.

    Definitely didn't vote for remain. Total Brexit supporter for years. Collecting my winnings from the bookies in the morning Laughing

    A no confidence motion on Corbyn is indeed underway but the problem Labour has it that he has solid support in the Party and Unions, its only the MPs and public who don't rate him. So even if they got the vote to remove him, he would be on the next ballot and would be back in!

    I too believe that Boris will be next. He fronted the successful Brexit campaign, is hugely popular in the Conservative Party, he is clever and has charisma (something Cameron didn't have), he attracted Labour voters to become London mayor. They like him in the US, he has a US passport. Boris is perfect to front the Out negotiations, he would probably include the other parties in the team.

    The procedure in our leadership is very simple. We don't vote in a person to the role of PM, we vote a party into power and it is invariably its leader that becomes PM. That means that when the leadership changes, like now with Cameron, and last time with Blair followed by Brown, the new leader is an auto shoe-in to be PM. That means, if Boris is the new Leader and it is difficult to see anyone getting near him, he will automatically become PM. He may then have an election but it won't be to confirm him in position, it will be to increase the number of his MPs as the Labour party is in disarray. I doubt it would be this year as he will have to get on with the Out negotiations. Next May would be my bet, when the bulk of them will be done and dusted. They will want to get on with it so we can shut our borders to unlimited EU migration of which there will be a lot now we are leaving the sinking ship.

    Thanks and I agree with the first chunk.

    It is unlikely that the UK will fall apart. Scotland might be idealistic but the people are not stupid. The support in many fields they get from England is considerable and now that North Sea oil is a busted flush that will become more important to them. They voted to stay in last time when the financial climate for independence was better. Plus England, if it actually wanted to keep Scotland (the politicians do but us the people don't care) the bribe to stay could be increased. Wales won't, its too small and in an even worse financial state. Northern Ireland is more difficult but it will stay, again due to financial issues but also the is no way the English will abandon their Protestant population into a Catholic Ireland, we fought a 30 year civil war about it. So, the UK will be the UK for a fair old time to come methinks.

    The rest I tend to agree with. But don't forget that one of the main financial drivers for the Euro was the effective devaluation it gave to the DM giving Germany a huge boost. What is certain is that we are rapidly heading into a period of huge and potentially very dangerous (if the US influences it) period of time when no-one knows what is going to happen. We are entering uncharted water.

    One of my mantras for the last few years has been "If anyone thinks the next 10 years are going to be the same as the last 10 then they haven't been paying attention". That prediction is now starting to play out.

    UK =/= Empire
    Yup, the UK will not collapse like the USSR but the EU will. It will be a bit tough on anyone not in Northern Europe. The UK may even forge stronger ties with Ireland.

    The British Empire ceased to be an Empire after WW2 in the 40s when India left. That was the point the US refused to allow it to continue and the final nail was the Suez crisis. But unlike Rome, which kinda disappeared for a few hundred years, the British Empire has morphed and in the guise of the City of London is still extremely powerful. God only knows what the real wealth of the Rothschild family is worth and what power they wield but it is immense worldwide. Bear in mind that in comparison the 'newly rich' Rockefellers were estimated to be worth $2.5B in the mid 1930's. A handful of Anglo/American families have the financial resources to wield power beyond our imaginations.

    The unthinkable has happened with the United Kingdom voting to leave the European Union. (BBC)

    Arguably, this is potentially the most serious development in world politics since the collapse of the Soviet Union. (Curiously, both catastrophes happened ‘voluntarily’.)

    What lies ahead? Let me outline three concentric circles – Britain’s future comes, of course, in the First Circle; followed by the fate of Europe in these uncertain times; and, enveloping the above two circles, the shift in the ‘co-relation of forces’ in the international system and world politics.

    Unsurprisingly, David Cameron has done the honorable thing to do – draw a line on his public life as a statesman. He made a disastrous miscalculation by assuming that the conservative British people will never want to take a peep into the abyss. Well, they have, and he needs to quit. Three cheers for British democracy.

    More important, however, the verdict itself is such a fractious and contentious one that it opens ancient wounds in Great Britain’s gory history. Scottish and Irish nationalism will inevitably rear their heads and militate against Britain’s departure from the European Union. So, how long can Britain survive in the present form? That is the troubling question.

    Second, the British vote also strikes chords within other EU member countries – especially in Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland and so on. There is a pervasive weariness over the EU, accentuated by more or less the very same grievances that Brits have harbored – over migration, loss of sovereignty, security concerns, decline in welfare system and austerity, economic inequality, and so on.

    So, what happens if the EU unravels? This is the second question.

    If we go back in time and recall the impetus behind the European project as such, we are bound to come across ancient ghosts that the continent had desperately needed to bury but are still around – the great mutual revanchism between the peoples of France and Germany dating back to the 16th century, in particular. It is vital that the European project survives to ensure that those ghosts of history remain forever in the attic.

    Even if EU doesn’t unravel, Britain’s role as a ‘balancer’ will be keenly missed. A new equilibrium will need to evolve. Which is not easy since Germany is already much more equal than the others in the tent.

    So, will the German question, the most daunting spectre of modern European history, resurface? This is the third question.

    In the international system, there is certainly going to be much volatility. Britain’s exit from EU deals a body blow to the US’ trans-Atlantic leadership. Indeed, there is no alternative but to mothball the Trans-Atlantic Partnership Agreement. It was meant to be a ‘platinum grade’ FTA, as John Kerry one put it. Washington may now have to settle for whatever is available, which may be no FTA. The advantage goes to China and Russia.

    Beyond that comes the US’ geostrategy. Certainly, if Moscow is wringing its hands with pleasure today, there is good reason for it. A disheveled, disoriented Europe makes a weak negotiating partner for Russia. Combined with the strong ‘Russian lobby’ within Germany (and France, Italy and Greece, etc.), it becomes highly problematic for the US to keep the sanctions against Russia going.

    So, will the US’ containment strategy against Russia be sustainable for long? This is the fourth question.

    Then, there are the unavoidable fallouts – euro’s uncertain future, for instance, and the concomitant turmoil in exchange rates; or the decline of London (‘The City’) as the world’s financial capital; or the capacity of the US dollar to retain its status as the world currency; or the surge of yuan; or the investment flows in general, etc.

    The post-cold war multipolar order rests on four key pillars – US, China, EU and Russia. If one pillar becomes shaky, the architecture weakens. Serious repair and renovation work will need to be undertaken. But the big-power rivalry doesn’t easily allow that.

    The good thing is that this momentous development has happened before Hillary Clinton and her neoconservative retinue moves into the White House in January. It comes as a badly-needed reality check for them on the serious limits to US power in world politics.

    The one thing that is missing in all the comments is whose fault this catastrophe for the EU is. Many blame us, the British, but whilst correct it is actually wide of the actual culprit.

    The real responsibility lies in Brussels. When Cameron went cap in hand (almost pleading) to negotiate a better deal the EU Commission had so badly read the situation that they basically saw that as weakness and sent him away empty handed. We have to believe that either they wanted the UK out, unlikely given the cashflow, or they believed that there was little chance that the UK would actually leave so were unbendingly tough negotiators.

    Talk about a Pyrrhic victory, it could go down as one of the worst strategic and costly errors by a major power ever.

    The real responsibility lies in Brussels. When Cameron went cap in hand (almost pleading) to negotiate a better deal the EU Commission had so badly read the situation that they basically saw that as weakness and sent him away empty handed. .......................

    Western politicians always do this, most recently with Russia. Ruskies (or anyone else) try to negotiate like mature adults and those clowns immediately come to a conclusion that other side is weak.

    WHy it looks to me ,that Cameron played a double game?
    In front of Cameras saying how UK should remain in the EU , but with the fingers crossed
    that the leave the EU wins. Cameron could have easily rigged the elections with the
    help of bribing people here or there. but he didn't. and when Brexit won , Cameron
    seemed very relaxed ,same with his wife and urged the world to respect the decisions
    of british people.  So is indeed suspicious , they could have very easily rigged things ,delay the voting ,then prepare the voting centers with a trap. but nothing of that.

    He could also have said the results were so close that does not justify leaving. but instead
    he ask the world to respect the results and RESIGN so he cannot be pressure to block
    the referendum.

    After all , people need to remember that the Brexit vote ..was all about something.
    about a total rejection of muslin migration. Any one with appreciation for his country to continue to exist as an european nation , even a evil man like CAmeron , should have seen the danger
    of Open Borders for millions and millions muslin refugees from the middle east. i cannot image any sane person to support that unless is a billionaire and do not have to worry about security since live in another country . So it was like a red line ,turning UK into the middle east.

    So it was like Cameron was saying one thing with words and another with his actions. The same goes for Neocons in United States. there are many who dislike the idea of open borders of USA
    and even more for muslin migrants from middle east. and then jumped in the side of Trump.
    like Pallin ,Only hard core neocons like Clintons support open borders policy. Since they have properties world wide and not attached to any place.

    Im just wondering in what way UK leaving EU , will benefit Russia. ?
