Well, what a week. This time last week, Britain was a fully paid-up member of the European Union, had a stable government and everyone was preparing for their summer holidays and their trip to the continent. Now, Britain is no longer a member of the EU, we don't have a Prime Minister and everyone is concerned about the cost of their summer holidays. An earth-shattering change. But even though there is a fundamental change in Britain I haven't seen much evidence of euphoria from the "Leave" campaign. They scored a fantastic victory but they appear to be as shocked as the "Stay" camp.

The biggest problem for "Leave" is that they have to live up to all the promises they have made and make sure that the divorce is as quick as possible and doesn't damage the British economy. Easier said than done. You see, I may be completely wrong, but I don't think that Britain has seen the last of the European Union. Divorce is a messy business and there is always time to kiss and make-up, even though it may appear highly unlikely at this stage. Little euphoria and plenty of shocked faces: not exactly an Independence Day party.

Mike / Hace about 3 hours "You don't know what your talking about all the remain camp are spineless can't think for themselves , need to be told what to do brainless fools ,grow a backbone and stand on your own two feet ,I am a business man with 50 employees and we are doing very nicely without the eu clowns interference if you are good at what you do you won't have a problem !"

You may be a business man (sic), and you may be very good at something, even if not communication. However, there were already thousands of very skilled people unable to find work; that stupid vote has just made it a damned sight more bleak for them all, as well as for who knows how many more to come.

If ever I came across an wonderful example of "I'm all right, Jack" your comment has to be it. Well done; you've made my day.

Britain is still a member of the EU until everything is signed and sealed. We still have a Prime Minister until October. But I agree that everyone in both camps seems subdued. Apparently a number of Leave voters are now saying that if they could vote again they would vote Remain, that their vote was just a vote of protest and that they didn’t expect Leave to win! How very irresponsible! As for Leave living up to their promises, they have already admitted that the NHS funding was a lie and that immigration won’t go down! And that in only 24 hours. What a farce and a shambles the whole thing is. If it goes ahead it will certainly be the end of ‘Great’ Britain because Scotland will declare independence, and the end of the (dis)United Kingdom as Northern Ireland will join the Republic of Ireland, leaving just England and Wales to lick their wounds. All of those who talked of making Britain ‘Great’ again are in for a shock.
