I would leave and buy a new home in the colonies (that's the U.S. for those of you that didn't know ;).

The Brits took Canada, with tiny parts for the French to scavenge (Quebec).

America was what the Italians (North USA), Scandinavians (Mid to South USA and Spanish (originally South West USA shared with Portuguese but they headed south later on as they found the native tribes easy to conquer and Mexico was easy deserted middle ground).

So, when are moving ;)

Side: Remain

I think they made the right move. They took back their sovereignty and are now in control of their own fate, rather than letting a bunch of hapless and clueless bureaucrats in Brussels call the shots. Kudos to Britain!

It has nothing to do with class. Locals know better what locals need than a bunch of far away bureaucrats who are beholden to subjugating the individual (country) to the collective. ( the EU) Who would know better what you need in your life- you, your state government, or DC?

I am a native Brit and I voted for Brexit. Me reasons mainly had to do with immigration policy and trade tariffs, SS well as the strength of the euro vs the pound. We'll see how well Brexit shakes out in a couple years I reckon. Till then I doubt too many of you Yanks would right understand what would compelling one of us to want to severed ties with Europe. It's a bleedin sort of ya had to be there kit.

Wrong. You seem to be interested in my country but know very little. You would do better to ask me questions than to show us all how off base you are. Where are you from, mate? And have you ever even been to England? If any other part of the UK? When? Where? Ask me anything.

Britain is still labouring under the misapprehension that it is a world class industrial superpower in it's own right and will continue to prosper outside Europe.

Right now the British economy is thriving, but it must be recognised that this success is due mainly to the fact that it is still in the single European market with no trade tariffs.

The pound sterling nose dived after the Brexit vote and although this development is helping British exports at the moment the additional overhead of imported raw materials will be responsible for the steady rise in manufacturing costs and inflation.

Once the average worker realises that his/her wages are worth much less in real terms than they were pre-Brexit we will see inflationary wage increase demands, strikes and industrial unrest.

The real catastrophe of this misplaced nationalistic madness will not manifest itself until the U.K, is completely outside the E.U., in just over two years time.

Now senior government figures are prostituting themselves by making embarrassing overtures to such nations as China, India and their good ally, The United States of America.

The U.K. could have addressed the eye-watering corruption and liberal insanity within the European Parliament as a member state, and along with other more conservative administrations could have modified some of the more emotive issues such as mass, unregulated immigration and the open border policy which has largely been responsible for the the French and German Muslim terrorist atrocities.

I would predict that the poor old Brits will eventually come out of denial and realise the enormity of their blunder and go humbly along to the E.U, asking for re-entry.

The thing is however that this won't happen, as any member nation can veto any such proposal.

Once their out, and they're on their way,they'll have to stay out.

I agree entirely with this.

I would have to live in Britain to answer this question, it's too important. In most cases I'm of the opinion that there is safety in numbers, and with Putin looking over my shoulder I'd want to stay united, but, as I said, I don't live there.

I DO however, live in the U.S. and the same goes here. Dividing America into individual state governments without a stabilizing central governing entity weakens U.S.! Dividing Europe weakens THEM. I hope there was VERY good reason for the division, which I doubt because the vote was so close, and like here, unexpected. We BOTH are less secure.

Correct decision. You are still my enemy here.

Okay. Is it still okay if I agree with you now and then? MY enemies are few, from MY perspective anyway. Now that we have a President with a seventh grade intellect I suppose we'll all find more enemies, it'll just be in the air all around us. Enjoy.

They had a lot more to do with the US close vote than the UK one.
