    Stupidity.
    Although a referendum is the most democratic form you can get its not always the wisest. Most people hadn't a clue about the consequences. They thought that stepping out of Europe would solve the refugee problem, they thought that the Uk would become richer because they didn't had to pay the EU anymore. Wrong
    The consequences are already building up.
    The Pound dropped, funds for pensions drops, stuff get more expensive.
    Scotland is Gonna leave the UK
    Europe won't support the UK anymore with roads,agriculture, lower export taxes, higher import taxes.
    No more laws to protect the labourers, thanks to the EU there is a minimum wage.
    The consequences are that the lower and middle class will get hurt big time
    In today's world market its suicide to be on your own.
    I'm just flabbergasted by the stupidity of the voting results.

      None of these are real benefits. And Scotland is too far north to care.
      The UK leaving the EU is like cutting out a malignancy so the surviving part can live. The EU being the malignancy.

      Eh, brad, Scotland has oil. The U.K. Alone on a global market is to small to survive. Banks and industry will be bought by Chinese, American and other foreign companies.

    British independence day from the EU
    Nationalism beats globalism
    Democracy over unelected bureaucracy

      Independence Day? UK crumbles. Scots are going, stock market down, the U.K. Will be eaten alive by the Global market now it's alone and weak. China laughs.
