EU members announced they'll hold the first meetings without UK on the summit next week.

Seems a bit premature, doesn't it?

The vote is one thing - but they haven't left yet.


.... or am I missing something?

Nope, it'll be a little while before we formally announce our intention.....

I'm hoping all those 9 out of 10 economists that predicted much needed insane house price falls due to brexit are right...  But I'm not holding my breath :palm:

Falling house prices is the last thing we need.

EDIT: Oh, that was prescient. I just saw that he has resigned.
There goes your last straw of goodwill in the EU for the exit negotiations.

We need the heat to come out of the housing market, just not this way.

It was, I think, inevitable. At least a resignation is better for political stability than a vote of no confidence.

Turkeys do vote for Christmas.
And Americans for Trump

I feel I have had a Chinese curse enacted upon me

Despite all my cynicism about the EU I actually voted to stay because: I don't like those who are on the leave campaign, there's always a great risk with any change and whilst we're still in the EU we can influence their rules.

However I'm not that devastated about leaving. Part of me wanted to vote leave, even though I've recently bought a house and will risk going into negative equity.

By the way: why is the closing date for this poll the 10th July? Perhaps it should be closed today.

Unfortunately I think a lot of votes were nothing to do with the issues and more to do with personalities...

it's unfortunate that a bunch of lazy ass brits with no work ethic think they are voting to remove 'foreigners' taking jobs that they are too lazy to do anyway. What they fail to understand it that it will have no effect and it never would. f*ing idiots!

And the French at least will be keen to punish the UK pour encourager les autres.

Funny, for as much as it's the Remain crowd that accuses the Leave voters as being intolerant, hateful, bigoted and angry... it seems the anger in this thread is only from the Remain folk.

I notice the same on other forums.  I hear the same words and same sentiments... racists!  idiots!  xenphobes!  They have set us back years!  Worldwide economic collapse is nigh!

Prior to the result, some Leave campaigners undoubtedly were intolerant, hateful and bigoted. This tended to put the many who weren't any of those things on the back foot when it came to exchanging insults.

This morning there is unlikely to be much anger from the Leave camp; they are too busy celebrating.

Not so much punish as not being able to give the UK any special treatment. If others notice they can leave and get a good deal out of it that would send the wrong signal (from the EU perspective), so EU can't afford to give the UK easy access to the inner market, for example. It will suck both for EU and the UK so no-one is going to do it out of malice.

Nicely done, British voters.

Now, see how the remain campaign is unable to follow its own advise to others: to behave like civilized and tolerant and welcoming people.

I'm not surprised looking at the results, I had a feeling that the vote would be regional, with the relatively prospersous south voting to remain and less well off areas voting to leave. I suspect the whole immigration issue played a big part unfortunately, in or out of the EU immigration isn't going to change. I also suspect that some Labour voters have become disillusioned and shifted their allegiance.
British politics has sunken to an all time low and there will be another round of complete bull shit from all parties in the up and coming general election.
Will EDF cancell or moth ball Hinkley Point, it's run into serious engineering issues, will the Swansea tidal barage be scrapped.  Those are only two major engineering projects I could think of, we will have to wait and see.

The EU wasn't a jail for UK. You'll be let out politely. And the negotiations will aim to set up good relations with an important market and country outside of the union.

UK will be part of the summit. But the first meetings without UK are planned during the summit.

Don't worry Mr D. Trump is in Scotland proclaiming his and America's support for independent Britain when he becomes president.

Seems stock markets around the world are going apeshit.

Another premature reaction, IMO.

I feel very sorry for those who wanted to stay in the EU. I know several British, mostly former colleagues and contractors. It's so :palm:

Ignorant outsider here.
Sorry if this has already been discussed, but its a long thread.

UK already had monetary independence.
So what will be the differences? Especially the economic ones which were campaigned upon.
Need to negotiate trade deals?
Tax laws suddenly changeing?
No freedom to work across the Channel.
IDK.

also. Do you think the catchy 'BREXIT' was worth a percentage point to the leavers?
