      I think it’s far too early to say right now.

      Farage Denies Conceding: “We Haven’t Had A Single Bloody Vote Counted”

      • smokervoter says:

        Well done Cousins!

        A teevee news pundit stated earlier in the night that Nigel Farage had conceded that Remain had squeaked out a victory based on UKIP exit polling. I went to bed with semi-misanthropic thoughts swirling around my brain. I had visions of that ex-smoking, Nanny State Tory, Cameron prancing round triumphantly with Obama and Hillary congratulating him from afar.

        Not so.

        Here’s to the demise of top-down, one-size-fits-all, totalitarian rule.

        Here’s to Nigel Farage, and may he never quit smoking and downing his pints.

        Well done Cousins! Well done.

        Jeff Beck is my Numero Uno Brit. The greatest guitarist ever by a country mile.

          Call me selfish;
          Here’s to Nigel Farage, and may he never quit smoking and downing his pints.
          THAT’S WHY I’m cautiously hoping for Deborah Arnott et al to be kicked out and we smokers become REAL people again.

    That list would include ALL of the leaders of the American Revolution, they were born as English citizens in an English colony.

    Sunderland votes to LEAVE
    Remain 51,930, Leave 82,394, Turnout 65%

    All the results from the English shires so far have been strongly for Brexit. If this continues, it’ll need the cities to come in with a big Remain vote. But today there’s been strong rain and flooding in London.

    This is the first London borough to report, I believe.

    LATEST: Leave now favourite on betting market
    Leave has now become the favourite on Betfair.

    I wasn’t planning to stay up, but I think I will. Because right now it looks like Brexit is sweeping the whole of England and Wales (but not Scotland or N Ireland or the cities)

  8. Frank Davis says:

    I’ve been following the Telegraph’s live coverage. But it’s suddenly stopped.

    javax.jcr.InvalidItemStateException: Item does not exist anymore: b0df44bb-6c60-41ba-8ae4-7c4562929cd0

    ZeroHedge was showing Brexit over 100,000 votes ahead. But now Remain has suddenly jumped 50,000 into the lead.

    The results that had been coming in had been showing a clean sweep for Brexit in the English shires (and also in Wales). It was beginning to look very like Britain was voting to leave the EU. But then everything stopped. Results stopped arriving. And suddenly Remain has jumped into the lead.

  9. Frank Davis says:

    Telegraph coverage is back up.

    Leave’s vote share continues to creep up, now at 51.3%.

    Labour now assume Leave win
    Labour is now working on the assumption that Leave is going to win, a party source has told The Guardian.

    The newspaper reports that Labour HQ is weighing up whether Jeremy Corbyn should call for David Cameron’s resignation in the event of a Brexit, but senior figures are reportedly saying the move “may prove unnecessary” as Mr Cameron may resign anyway.

    With more than half of districts reporting results, Leave was ahead 51.6% to 48.4%.

    been out of combat and off line for a week (and likely for at least the next week too) but FOX News just reported Leave won (and to hell with the jittery markets) so I had to get on to express my congratulations ,joy, relief, and even hope for the rest of us. Now on to Frexit, Grexit, and F’kit to the EU. Good job, Brits!

  34. nisakiman says:

    All the votes are not yet counted, but Brexit are more than a million votes ahead. And already Wilders in Holland and Le Pen in France are calling for their own referenda. The snowball has been pushed over the edge of the mountain, and can only gather speed and force as it descends.

    • nisakiman says:

      Interestingly, on the BBC news home page, there is no mention anywhere of the referendum unless you scroll down to click on the ‘Politics’ box! Sour grapes?

    • smokingscot says:

      It’s also opened up the (almost certain) likelihood of yet another Scottish “Independence Referendum”. So says the Sturgeon.

      It’s freaky being in a town where “remain” was the default:

      http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/news/politics/eu-referendum-edinburgh-votes-three-to-one-for-remain-as-uk-heads-for-brexit-1-4162652

      I’ve been pondering what the SNP have got to offer the Scots. Certainly the “oil ” thing’s a dead duck – and even a loathing for the Tory party doesn’t quite hack it, seeing as they scored rather well at the last Assembly Elections in May of this year (and the Tories up here are the only party resolutely opposed to independence). No way they can ever expect to keep the Pound (which in due course will rebound strongly).

      So the only thing I can see them using as an excuse is that we – as a nation – voted to remain. And we’ll get the Euro, plus all the obligations we’ll face as a part of the Euro area, like bailing out Southern States.

      Yet only two years ago the EU leaders said the last thing they wanted to see were little bitty regions going it alone – and were very opposed to an independent Scotland.

      Will they change their tune and risk things like Catalonia as well as the Basques and a whole bunch of other regional areas separating within the EU umbrella?

      Personally I think not – and there’s a very real possibility a far more charismatic PM as well as a far more competent Chancellor emerging in Westminster.

      Fortunately Wales went with the English, so they’ll stay with big brother.

      Sturgeon may be a total loon when it comes to independence, but she knows another no vote up here will kill her career and put the whole issue of independence to bed for at least another generation. Will she risk it?

      Yup, as you imply, interesting times ahead! Oh and let’s not forget the people of Spain go to the polls on the 26th of this month. That should be amusing!

  35. Marvin says:

    What a fantastic result :) After all the propaganda from the media, the government, big business, various assorted “experts” and all those on the EU gravy-train, not to mention the murder of the MP, we did it. The “elite” have just been given a f*cking good kicking by the “plebs”. I am so proud of those who voted leave in the face of all of that. What we need now is a government that BELIEVES in Brexit……………..oh and Nigel for PM

    David Cameron RESIGNS as Britain leaves the EU
    8:20, Fri, Jun 24

    “Mr Cameron stepped down in a statement outside Number 10.

    The Prime Minister said he will continue with his Cabinet for the next three months.

    In an emotional speech: He said: “I love this country, I feel honoured to have served it and I will do everything I can in the future to help it succeed.”

  38. Manfred says:

    Congratulations to you all who willed BREXIT in the UK. A line in the sand for democracy and the will of the people. Here in NZ, the sycophantic eco-Marxists of the MSM peddle their disdain and contempt for democracy, ‘blaming’ the victory on extreme right wing politics, a point usually made between metaphorical retching and moans of end times. They ‘feel’ the broken ‘narrative’, they vicariously experience the visceral separation from the Kollectiv in Brussels. They are victims who never understood democracy. Thus far, only one well known NZ MP has articulated that this is a triumph for democracy and in so many words, the ruling elite with the low intellectual wattage MSM in tow should watch their backs.

  39. Margo Jackson says:

    My will to live has returned! Next question: will we be allowed to leave?

    Brussels, you have a problem.

    The UK is the second largest net contributor to the EU budget and is responsible for about 1/8th of the EU budget.

    guess the bureaucrats will have to take a big pay cut.

    • beobrigitte says:

      guess the bureaucrats will have to take a big pay cut.
      Nope. The likes of ASH et al will pick it up.

      • Harleyrider1978 says:

        Ash is govmnt funded and they don’t get billions a month to pick up the uk eu tribute each month.

        Now Brexit had won it means the uk government will now have to watch it’s money big time and start cutting costs meaning ash and similar groups will soon likely be begging on the streets for money

  42. beobrigitte says:

    I wasn’t going to watch any BBC today. However, I received a lot of texts today. One lamenting the future cost to travel to Britain. I texted back that my being possibly re-classified as a human being is worth more than money.
    Eagerly awaiting a chance to kick Debbie’s arse until I break my big toe.

    To Dave; you didn’t listen to the people. Surprised?
