Well, looks like the people of UK have decided. They were asked whether they want to have a new recession and Scotland to leave. They said yes.

Heard Northern Ireland wants to leave now, too.

Not surprising, they don't want to be that much separated from Ireland either.

It infuriates me that something this important can pass with anything less than 100% support. Nearly half the country voted to stay. And the majority of them were the young voters.

Best post I saw on Tumblr was "people over the age of 65 should not be allowed to vote. Because it's not their future"...

Looking at the yes/no maps, it's interesting to see how the bigger cities have voted for staying. Looks to me that the more intelligent and better educated people have voted to stay. And, I guess, the ones voting to leave are also the ones who will likely suffer the most from the consequences of this.

Oh they will definitely suffer. Whats-his-pickle who led the charge on Brexit was promising 350million pounds that they pay to the EU (which is a false number, they really pay only about 119million) would be funneled into the NHS. And he's been seen on camera saying that it was a flat out mistake to promise that.

It's really rather horrifying.

Because I fear for my neighbours to the south. Trump is a very real threat in the states. And Brexit has shown that it could be possible.

People who weren't smart enough to check the facts were either scared into voting for leaving or were promised things that can not be delivered, quite the opposite...
