Out.

I do think it odd that they use pencils for something so important. Weird. 1st time I've voted in 21 years and all I could think about was "which twonk thought pencils were a good idea"

Let's face it. Cameron only called the referendum because he thought it'd be an easy win and would kick the question of EU membership into touch for a generation.

As with a lot of things lately, he was wrong. I'll stick my neck out and call it on the results so far as a probable win for Leave. I'd guess that he'll resign soon and someone else (Gove? BoJo?) will have to pick up the pieces.

Looks like a deffo win for leave then.And the pound has dropped to its lowest value since 1985.Whichever side won atleast 40-45 percent of the country wouldnt have been happy with the result.Shows the massive divides that there is in the country between regions and classes.Maybe a more independent country could bring the nations regions, classes, cultures closer together. Who knows.

Looks like we are out

Any part of Europe need a games event roadie with his own gear for gaming shenanigans?
Failing that anyone round there want a roadie with quite a lot of back up skills?
That can understand bits of Spanish, French and Georde?

Bring on Scottish Independence.

Boris for PM? Trump for President?

These are very scary times. Putin and Kim Jong Un will be smirking all the way to their nuclear bunkers. Make a space for president ass-hat of Syria too, we're all buddies together.

Very interesting to look at that results map by region, mainly Scotland and the middle south voted to remain....and a bit of wales.

Peoples Republic of United Kingdom has a certain ring to it!

I do believe Farage might actually cum in his pants if his PA doesn't sedate him.

72% turnout is pretty remarkable, and once again shows just how out of touch politicians are with the mood of the country

Just shows after all the scaremongering and Liberal twats with their racist and and other derogatory comments to towards leavers, that it still didn't faze the final vote. So glad that censored who killed Jo Cox had no longterm reverberations on the leave campaign. So happy, gonna have a fap before work.

A gobsmacking and stunning result that is both depressing and potentially quite devastating to this country. The turkeys went and voted for christmas! :o

Seriously though, a shocking result. I just hope the slight majority of 52% know what they are doing...lets just see what happens to the financial markets today. :shock:

I wouldn't call it a "gobsmacking" result. It's been clear for ages that it wasn't going to be the walkover Cameron took for granted when he called the referendum. Still, I'm a little surprised to see the natural inclination of people to play it safe defeated in the way it has been.

What happens in the markets today doesn't matter all that much. The markets will be chaotic, as has been long predicted and widely known. Long term will depend on how the governments and banks handle it.

I don't think anyone thought it would be a walkover, but I think most people on here, including many "leave" voters, and including the likes of Boris and Farage, would not have expected this result at 10pm last night. The bookies and polls got it wrong, again.

It will be very interesting to see the next steps from Cameron and Osborne. Surely its curtains for at least one of them.

I've never liked Osbourne, but I've always just found Cameron to just be a wimp of a leader when intimidated by the eu.

I'm looking forward to seeing how he handles this now he has no power over his decisions.

I wonder just how many EU members will now feel obligated to run their own referendums, could be a domino effect. I'm not going to harp on, the votes have been cast, but I think this will be damaging for UK in the short-mid term.
