Oh good. One of the last to come in -
Cornwall
Leave 56.5%
182,665 VOTES
Remain 43.5%
140,540 VOTES
Turnout: 77.0%

I've been watching the Poldark series so I was hoping Cornwall would vote to leave. Hah!
The actor in that series is just too good looking.
Yes,...I am that superficial.
Don't tell anyone.

In 45 minutes the markets in France and Britain and England all open up. Cameron will be making a statement at just about the same time.

The political talking heads on the Sky News feed via FOX Business have their disagreements, but some interesting points being made is that this completely undercuts David Cameron's credibility, when upon such a Fundamental National Issue that he championed for he was rejected. This causes one head to say he is done and ought to resign, and the other head agrees he's pretty much nothing but a caretaker until a new PM who was for the Exit.

Other chat is on the point that some top Politician in Scotland won big, because she recently won some huge issue election in Scotland, and that in the vote today 62 percent of Scottish voters wanted to stay in the EU, so maybe something of a split will come out of that and perhaps Scotland will figure out how to stay in the EU or join it on it's own as some independent entity.

Now Nigel Farage is on saying that a new Govt that is for Brexit is absolutely essential, and he closes his speech to huge applause by saying that June 23rd should be named "Independence Day."

New Brit talking head is now on FOX Business saying it's quite likely 4 or 5 other countries will be voting to leave the Euro Zone, and possibly we'll see the end of the Euro as a Currency.

From Narciso's earlier link to Tim Blair:

Reader Steve emails:
I phoned my Uncle Johnny (WWII Parachute Regiment) last night to wish him a happy 90th birthday. He was putting on his overcoat and heading into the rain to his polling station in West Yorkshire. I asked which way he was planning to vote.

“When I was 20 I dropped into France to stop the Germans taking over my country,” he replied, “so I thought I’d better have another go at stopping them now.”

Ha!

effective october and the trigger for article 50 will be left to the next PM.

Here's my transcript of much of David Cameron's resignation speech this morning outside 10 Downing Street:

---Starts off saying we just had a big election and we asked the people themselves. They voted to leave the EU and their will must be respected. There can be no question about their decision.

--- There will be no immediate changes in your circumstances, in the way our people can travel, or in the way our Goods and Services can be sold.

---We must now prepare for a negotiation with the European Union. This will involve the full engagement of the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland Governments to ensure that the interest of all parts of our United Kingdom are protected and advanced.

---But above all this will require, strong, determined and committed leadership. I am very proud and very honored to have been Prime Minister of this country for 6 years. I believe we've made great steps... education, gay marriage,...but above all for restoring Britain's Economic strength...

---...I fought this campaign in the only way I know how, which was to say directly and passionately what I think and feel...I held nothing back. I was absolutely clear about my belief that Britain is stronger, safer and better off inside the European Union. And I made clear the Referendum was about this, and this alone, not the future of any single politician, including myself.

---But the British people have made a very clear decision to take a different path, and as such I think the country require fresh leadership to take it in this direction. I will do everything I can as prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months, but I do not think it would be right for me to be the Captain that steers our country to its next destination...

---In my view we should aim to have a new Prime Minister in place by the start of the Conservative Party Conference in October.

---Delivering stability will be important, and I will continue in post as prime Minister, with my cabinet, for the next 3 months...A negotiation with the European Union will need to begin under a new Prime Minister. and I think its right that this new Prime Minister takes the decision about when to trigger Article 50, and start the full and Legal process of leaving the EU...

I love this country and I feel honored to have served it, and I will do everything I can in future to help this great country succeed. Thank you very much.

Excellent speech. His voice broke at the last 2 sentences, and you can see that he really felt and meant what he said. Good job, Sir.

daddy

Wish 0bama would get the message and do likewise.

Me too, glasater,

but Obama could never give such an honest speech like Cameron, which at the same time praised his country and showed his love for it, because Obama neither respects America nor loves it.

daddy

Leave proponent Boris Johnson is set to give his speech shortly. Worth keeping in mind that "The voluble former London mayor, who was a leading campaigner for the Brexit, said Obama’s intervention on the other side may stem from an “ancestral dislike of the British empire” because of his Kenyan roots. The remarks were widely condemned in the U.K."

Go Boris! Might not be a bad thing this Election to have a Prime Minister in the UK unafraid to speak honestly about Obama.

daddy

Live cameras now showing Donald Trump just arriving at some Scottish location in a gorgeous sleek helicopter emblazoned "TRUMP." Apparently he will have words about the Brexit Vote shortly.

Here he is exiting the copter, wearing his MAGA Ball Cap and followed by his family as he strolls across the Lawn of his Scottish Golf Course, walking behind some uniformed Highlands marching men in Kilts, playing bagpipes---what a spectacle!

The man knows how to make an entrance:)

daddy

Tony Blair is up saying "I'm very sad for the country, Europe, and the World," and a ton of other words revealing that he thinks the idea of freedom, self rule, and national sovereignty are quaint outdated notions that have no place in this modern world. Not worth transcribing---thats the gist.

I didn't realize they had banned electric tea kettles! Had one in my room when I went over in 2010. I was so impressed I looked for a similar one here, though never could find one as quick as the one I had at the Hilton.

Not to get overly graphic here---but think about it. You've only got so much time in the morning (if you are lucky enough to have a job) to take care of "business"---which for most people, is greatly facilitated by the gastro-colic reflex--something in the mouth gets the entire bowel going.

I've had to re-evaluate my take on Paul Ryan.

​Donald J. Trump Statement Regarding British Referendum on E.U. Membership

The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.


Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people. I hope America is watching, it will soon be time to believe in America again.

Miss Marple 2

Trump on now from Turnbury.

Miss Marple 2

Mostly his appearance was about the new course and golf.

Complimentary about the vote, but mostly about the course.

It's a business trip so not unexpected.

David Gregory thinks that he should be talking about Brexit. I told him if he had talked a lot about Brexit, then they would have called him opportunistic (and probably gauch, now that I think about it).

Interesting observation: his voice was more subdued and very complimentary to all of the people of the town.

Seems to me that since Scotland voted Remain, it was smart not do dwell on it too much.

jimmyk

Very good statement from Trump.

Fox Business has done a great job of covering this, with interesting guests from both sides of the issue.

This morning they talked with Sir Bill Cash, a conservative pro-Brexit MP, who talked common sense, explaining that this was a great opportunity for the UK. He also dismissed talk of Scotland having another referendum, saying they can't do it without permission from the House of Commons. A bit of irony there, I suppose.

jimmyk

Trump quotes Obama saying the UK would "move to the back of the line," and says "That won't happen with a Trump administration. They've been great allies, and they will stay at the front of the line.... What I like is to see people take their country back."

jimmyk

Incidentally, the above-mentioned Bill Cash co-wrote this book, "From Brussels with Love":

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brussels-Love-Radomir-Tylecote/dp/0956434665

Looks like a good read, though apparently it claims "the US has coerced and pushed the UK into the EU, to suit its own interests," which sounds a bit odd to me. He said it rocketed to the top of Amazon, and all the profits are going to support veterans.

What's an electric tea kettle?

It's an electric pitcher, for lack of a better descriptor, which heats water super-fast and which you then pour over tea in your teapot (or use to make instant coffee as I do).

Speaking of a great day for freedom, the Cavs rally trampled most of the flowers that were planted for the RNC convention. #ProudToBePartOfIt

jimmyk

Trump and the Republicans need to make the analogy of the UK vs Brussels and the states vs Washington DC. Not that states should secede, but that DC has encroached on the states in much the way Brussels has on the member EU states.

rse

It's also left over from the days when centralized heat was an uncommon luxury. When I was at oxford the summer of 1980 we had an electric tea kettle in the room, bathroom down the hall, and a room heater you would put coins in to heat the room for a certain time period while you were in it but not yet under covers. In the morning you put money in it to do the same while you got ready.

1980 was an extraordinary hot summer in North America and cold in europe. There was about a 55 degree temp drop between atlanta's high when i left and london when i arrived. Normally heaters are not so crucial all summer long, but they were that year.

Captain Hate

Looks like a good read, though apparently it claims "the US has coerced and pushed the UK into the EU, to suit its own interests," which sounds a bit odd to me.

That sounds a bit odd to me too since a primary reason given to form it was to compete economically with the US.

rse

"to compete economically with the US" or NAFTA?

If it is nafta it makes more sense as what the UK has now done flies in the face of moving beyond the nation-state that is honestly at the heart of both the clintons' and the bushes' worlviews. It is the essence of the uniparty generally and why cameron was a continuation of brown's love for un policies.

squaredance

Well the American wing of the globalist/NWO cliche certainly was a long term backer of the EU, though certainly not the originator of it. Certainly no American government has opposed it. Wall Street of course welcomed it as the Euro gave them yet another shuttlecock to pitch around, and siphon off more bucks.

Again, this is a confusion of terms: government vs the people. It is doubtful that most Americans were very concerned at all about the EU until few years ago, and one suspects even today those who do not follow European matters are mostly ignorant of what the EU project is really about.

Still, this view of the EU as being some sort of USA plot is not uncommon in Europe, though hardly mainstream.

Given the support for the EU by the USA government, it is not difficult to see how some could hold this view.

Good morning.

My family and Frederick's godfather have been polled by your's truly. Looks it was a 3 to 1 for leaving. I am surprised since I thought voting booth psychology: You vote your pockebook, would take over. Not that I am disappointed since I have never been in favor of layers of government upon layers of government.

That said, has anyone mentioned that the UK takes over the EU presidency in 2017 since they will still be a member until negotiations are completed. Those could take 5-7 years for fulfillment. So, it will be interesting to watch Boris and his Leave gang take over leadership of the EU at the same time they are negotiating their formal departure.

Life doesn't get any better than watching that circus. Well maybe Trump building his wall with illegal immigrants but on the Mexican side not our side.

Well in general in the DoD and the intel community, NATO, the interlocking European Intel networks (HUMINT and SIGINT), mostly centered on the UK and the Germans, and the security counsel of the UN were seen as the binding force early on.

Perhaps though late 1950s thru the 1960s, the ECC, a later development, might be seems as some sort of aid to WW3, but not the EU. The EU really did not factor much into most Cold war planning. Perhaps it was seen in the 1990s as something down the road, but sort of strategy was perhaps at the margins.

It has been the claim of the EU propagandist that the EU not only has be a bulwark against war in general but has actually been responsible for the peace in Europe since WW2.

This, for innumerably obvious reasons, is as risible as it is bogus, and merely the usual aburd revisionist propaganda.

It is hard to see how practically the EU limits world war, or war in Europe. If anything it is so destabilizing it increase the chances for chaos, turmoil and tumult, thereby increasing the chances for war.

For all the talk of Germany using the EU to yet again attempt to dominate the EU, it must be remembered that the whole ECC/EU confabulation was conceived of by France. It was seen as a way to tax farm the Germans and counter the US (and get some revenge on the UK as some added spice). It did not work out quite that way as the French overreached themselves. Beyond that, the EU has been called "a 1970s solutions to 1950s problems", and so it is, at least in part, but those "problems" wre a perceived lack of power, influence and dignity relative to the USA and the USSR.

Though a Germany on its own is troubling, granted. It is quite possible in time that they could form another alliance with Russia.

One can imagine that this could be the next great European crisis, 20 ears down the line.

Back around the late '80s, we went to a dry run, one man show by Burt Reynolds in Cowlumbus. It was quite memorable. I can still recall most of his stories. The one that came to mind last night was his telling a story of going to a party of old Hollywood pals the night that Joan Crawford died. It was announced to all in the room when Bette Davis made her grand entrance and said in her booming voice, "THE BITCH IS DEAD."

That's what hit me last night.

Hi fdcol63! Great to see you.

I thought Cameron's speech was excellent. Feel a bit sorry for him, but to his credit, unlike some people, he knows when the people have spoken and his time is up.

Trump held a pro-Leave press conference in Scotland before the vote and he scheduled today's post-vote presser before the results came in. I thought it was risky, but hey, this is a time for strong, unequivocal stands. The British people know what side he's on.

Daughter has turned me into a class A coffee snob. I buy beans, grind them (has to be a burr grinder), water has to be certain temperature, pour tiny amt. water on fresh ground to let the CO2 escape, etc. etc. etc. I laughed when I first heard all of this! Previously, I would drink coffee that had been sitting in the pot for 6 or 7 hours, or I would re-heat coffee in the microwave (sometimes more than once!!!!) This kind of behavior is blasphemous to the true coffee aficionado.

My former mindless morning routine has become more like a science lab experiment. But the coffee sure is good!
