Brexit! BBC Calls Leave to win!

It’s BREXIT! EU referendum delivers a resounding Leave vote as Nigel Farage hails a ‘victory for real people’ – but Pound slumps to 31 YEAR low and stocks tumble as markets panic

Farage

BBC says Britain votes leave!

BBC Leave Wins

Results so far Way too close to call at this point.

Note that Remain lead early largely due to the fact that constituencies expected to vote Remain reported first. Of note is that Newcastle which was expected to heavily vote Remain saw the stay vote only just squeak by at a 50 to 49% result. The Orkney Islands and Gibraltar, small constituencies also were expected to vote remain. Sunderland walloped Remain for the leave side bearing in mind that the majority vote decides the outcome not a majority of constituencies. 16.8 Million votes in favour “of” needed to win.

Watch the BBC talking heads at this link, they actually have a good system for weighting each constituency.

Counting is under way in a referendum that will decide whether the UK remains a member of the European Union.

The counting is taking place at centres around the UK in a vote widely seen as too close to call.

There is no exit poll – so the millions who cast a ballot will have to wait until results start coming in to find out how the country voted.

      That’s funny. Someone from the U.S. having fun maybe. Those names of different districts or regions don’t mean anything to me either. 🙂

    I still think it is rigged for stay.

    • I don’t, I think leave can win this.

      • Linda1000

        Really, they might win? I hope so. The map just turned all orange in the northern parts and a penis vote was counted for Remain.

        • They lead by over 400,000 votes now.

          • Linda1000

            YES! That’s awesome! Wow! Where are you watching – on TV?

          • If you watch the BBC live feed, the results scroll is showing a lot more victories for the Leave campaign than for the Remain camp, Leave is up by 564,000 votes right now, they are well on their way to 11 million votes total, 16.8 million votes are needed to win.

          • Linda1000

            Thanks, it will be so great if Brexit wins. Almost as good as a Trump victory in the U.S.
            I don’t have TV so I’ve been looking online.

          • G

            British exit, Trump presidency? What next?
            Swedish men with testosterone?

            Naaaahhhh too much.

          • Linda1000

            LOL, Sadly, I don’t have much hope for Europe and things are going to get very nasty there so that’s one of the reasons, I think it’s so important for Brexit to win.

          • Petrilia

          • Petrilia

            Brexit wins, Trump wins.

          • Linda1000

            I’m still mad at the Scots for planting the Mexican flag on the edge of Trump’s golf course over there. 🙂 The golf course is close to Aberdeen.

          • 6:00 a.m. est. Trump is giving a press conference in Scotland. CBSN.

            Of course the pound is going to be obliterated. How dare those peons vote against the interests of their betters. This is far from over.

          • Waffle

            Short term, it might be good for a Dead Cat Bounce.

      • Petrilia

        I might die of happiness if leave wins, looks like it might.Give me a nice funeral.

  • Linda1000

    Daily Mail now saying Remain is counting on Scotland and London. Why do the Scots always seem to screw things up?
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/index.html

    • Londonistan is solid remain in the core but outer boroughs not so much, and remember it is total votes not ridings that count, Leave leads despite Londonistan and Scotland results so far.

      • Linda1000

        Thanks. Too bad, good-bye England, I guess. Now the EU and Merkel will really stick it to them. The Queen must be disappointed to see her once proud, independent UK wanting to become absorbed by the EU.

        • Leave is winning and are now projected to win, even the bookies have had a change of heart.

          • G

            I hope you are right. A kick in the nuts to the establishment is just what’s needed.

            Screw you Merkel.
            Screw you Brussels.
            Screw you MSM (British, American and Canadian – they’re all PR hacks fo r the Remain side.)
            Screw you Obama and Trudeau.

            A Leave vote would shove it in all their faces.

          • Looking good.

          • G

            If Leave wins then the dumbass canadian MSM will give the Quebec separatist PQ a lot of free publicity.

            If Quebec separatism begins to resurface I’m from Calgary but I’ll tell you, I’ll be doing everything I can to urge it along.

            If mainstream political parties (CPC included) want to all essentially support identical policies then democracy in Canada is dead so separatism it is.

          • Linda1000

            Me too, I’ll help you. What about Alberta separating? I could care less about Quebec, but even just them leaving might be an improvement for Canada. Actually, I’d like Saskatchewan, AB and B.C. to leave.

          • G

            People in AB are too chickenshit to separate. They talk and bluster but when it come to voting they lose their bladders.

            Besides, the province today isn’t what it was when Klein was premier. Too many easterners have moved in and brought their bullshit welfare politics with them. (This explains the NDP government.)

            Calgary, also has become to “go to” place for immigrants.
            Calgary is basically western Toronto. We have a muslim homosexual for a mayor. We have Hamas supporters rioting and beating up jews in front of City Hall with the police conveniently no where to be found.

            When our gutless cops are shamed into watching hysterical muslims nutjobs swearing like drunken sailors in public at the top of their lungs the cops stand by timidly and harass anyone who dares to give the muzzies a dirty look.

          • Linda1000

            I agree and for that reason, I’m seriously considering leaving Calgary and likely Alberta.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            We just need one western province to really threaten to leave to change the calculus of the national debate.
            Fifty years of Quebec using their leverage is about to boomerang on them.

          • Exile1981

            I’d support the estern seperation… but there are a lot of far left types in BC

          • WalterBannon

            Bring it

            It would be an automatic firing of Turdeau

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Quebec separatism is yesterday’s war.
            They can’t afford to leave.

          • Exile1981

            Actually a quebec exit would weaken the left in federal politics.

            plus turdeau would loose his seat if quebec exitted.

          • Petrilia

            Next Trump..

          • Linda1000

            Maybe a lot of Scots were drunk and forgot to vote so even if the map is all orange for Remain in the north the total number of votes will not be many. 🙂

          • V10_Rob

            Wonder if the reporting from the ‘Remain’ strongholds was deliberately done first, to give the impression that was the trend and encourage ‘Leave’ voters to not bother? Farage admitted to being worried as ‘Remain’ pulled ahead, and the media quickly tried to spin it into a formal concession of defeat.

          • RAMA44

            To be honest ,it was the bookie prediction that had me most concerned!

    • Alain

      Because all Scots with brains left long ago.

      • Frances

        Actually, there was a report about 40 years ago saying that the average IQ in Scotland had dropped because of all the emigration.

      • LauraS

        As the first generation Canadian daughter of Scottish ex-pats who came here in the ’60s, I can tell you that’s completely true. The ones who stayed are socialist beyond belief, and rely on the government for everything.

        Glad Brexit won. Will be interesting to see if the Scottish Independence movement revs up after this vote.

      • Norman_In_New_York

        And Dewey defeated Truman. Another shining moment in the history of the opinion polls.

        • Yea the pollsters were wrong again, even the bookies had to backtrack.

        • mauser 98

          good point !! …Lucy.. some ‘splainin to do

        • V10_Rob

          It seems like pollsters in recent years have a tendency to be tilted in favor of the establishment’s narratives. When they were reporting a dead heat on the eve, I took heart that it probably meant ‘Leave’ actually had a 5-10 point lead.

      • Martin B

        Thank goodness Britons have decided NOT to drink their cyanide.

      • Exile1981

        I was sure it would be rigged to fail. I guess the globalists didn’t work hard enough.

  • Petrilia

    Looks like Leave may be winning

    • Brett_McS

      It’s over. Leave has won. Now for the really hard work.

      • Yup, I am happy at the result. I hope it is contagious.

      CNN is always totally unreliable. Lots of great pictures, etc. at the Daily Mail.

        wanted to kick my TV..CNN bias beyond words

    • V10_Rob

      As in ‘technical difficulties’ (a butthurt media marxist knocked over the equipment?), or they cut away to their friend’s commentary about how this vote doesn’t really mean the UK will leave?

    • Waffle

      I watched him on Bloomberg. Excellent speech. Very upbeat and positive.

  • mauser 98

    a glimmer of hope in this world .. flicker of light

      Absolutely fabulous win thanks to Mr. Farage and all the sensible Brits who worked so hard on the Leave side.

    They can’t call Nigel Farage a “fringe” politician, anymore.

    • V10_Rob

      The powers that be are slipping badly. First they allowed Trump into the ring, convinced he’d never even get out of the low single digits in the GOP primary. Then they let Britons have what’s supposed to be sham referendum to legitimize the globalist usurpation and they go and vote against the agenda.

      Someone’s going to be sent to eat at the kid’s table at the next Bilderberg…

  • Maggat

    Uncharted waters ahead, Britain has sailed into uncharted waters many times in the past thousand years and will sail straight and true through this stormy sea as well. Rule Britannia!

    • Linda1000

      And I hope Britain will always have the wind in her sails. I dedicate this song to Brexit, Mr. Farage and all the supporters for a new beginning. It just seems appropriate but there are I’m sure, many other better selections.

    Good work the English.

    Now, I know that Justin loves to extend the hand of friendship. Embrace the struggling and all that. Soooo.

    Tomorrow morning it would be lovely if JT said that he and his government were looking forward to immediately negotiating a trade agreement with the United Kingdom. And add that, in anticipation of a successful negotiation, we were buying, say, 20 billion pounds as they are 10% off and we’ll need them to buy British goods.

    It would take him five minutes, would make us England’s friends forever and, best of all, be a shrewd business move.

    Over to you Justin.

      Britain certainly won’t be the last: Apre moi le deluge!

    • Mark Carney of the Bank of England (formerly Canada’s chief banker) appeared on BBC supposedly to “reassure” the world about the British markets. He was solemn as an undertaker — his words were reassuring (the Bank has hundreds of $billions in reserve) but his expression was like someone who just got hit by bus. It was rather bizarre.

      • k2

        This zillionaire representative of the banks, large corporations and the “elite” in general was “as solemn as an undertaker”, was he? Hmm, that’s really too bad … he, he, hee, ha, ha, hah! (Cough, splutter.) OK, gloating is not very becoming, I know 😉
