The people have spoken — and they’ve said, “No” to globalization and “Yes” to an independent United Kingdom.
Britain voted to leave the European Union after a bitterly divisive referendum campaign, toppling the government Friday and causing Prime Minister David Cameron to resign. The decision sent global markets plunging.
The decision launches a yearslong process to renegotiate trade, business and political links between the United Kingdom and what would become a 27-nation bloc, an unprecedented divorce that could take decades to complete.
“The dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom,” said Nigel Farage, leader of the U.K. Independence Party. “Let June 23 go down in our history as our independence day!”
Prime Minister David Cameron, who had led the campaign to keep Britain in the EU, said he would resign by October and left it to his successor to decide when to invoke Article 50, which triggers a departure from European Union.
“I will do everything I can as prime minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months,” he said, “but I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers the country to its next destination.”
The electoral commission said 52 percent of voters opted to leave the EU. Turnout was high: 72 percent of the more than 46 million registered voters cast ballots.
Polls ahead of the vote had shown a close race, but the momentum had increasingly appeared to be on the “remain” side over the last week. The result shocked investors, and stock markets plummeted around the world, with key indexes dropping 10 percent in Germany and about 8 percent in Japan and Britain.
The euro fell against the dollar and the pound dropped to its lowest level since 1985, plunging more than 10 percent from about $1.50 to $1.35 before a slight recovery, on concerns that severing ties with the single market will hurt the U.K. economy and undermine London’s position as a global financial center. Bank of England Gov. Mark Carney sought to reassure the markets.
“We are well prepared for this,” Carney said. “The Treasury and the Bank of England have engaged in extensive contingency planning. … We have taken all the necessary steps to prepare for today’s events.”
Also seeking to calm frayed nerves was the most prominent “leave” campaigner, Boris Johnson. Taking a somber tone unusual for the flamboyant former London mayor, he said the result in no way meant the United Kingdom would be “less united” or “less European.”
Even as he spoke, however, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said a second Scottish referendum on independence from the United Kingdom “has to be on the table.” Scotland voted in 2014 to remain a part of the U.K. but leaders said afterward that was conditional on Britain remaining in the EU.
The U.K. would be the first major country to leave the EU, which was born from the ashes of World War II as European leaders sought to build links and avert future hostility. With no precedent, the impact on the single market of 500 million people — the world’s largest economy — is unclear.
Already, far-right leaders in France and the Netherlands were calling for a similar anti-EU vote.
The referendum showed Britain to be a sharply divided nation: Strong pro-EU votes in the economic and cultural powerhouse of London and semi-autonomous Scotland were countered by sweeping anti-Establishment sentiment for an exit across the rest of England, from southern seaside towns to rust-belt former industrial powerhouses in the north.
“It’s a vindication of 1,000 years of British democracy,” commuter Jonathan Campbell James declared at the train station in Richmond, southwest London. “From Magna Carta all the way through to now we’ve had a slow evolution of democracy, and this vote has vindicated the maturity and depth of the democracy in our country.”
Cameron called the referendum largely to silence voices to his right, then staked his reputation on keeping Britain in the EU. Former London Mayor Boris Johnson, who is from the same party, was the most prominent supporter of the “leave” campaign and now becomes a leading contender to replace Cameron. The vote also dealt a blow to the main opposition Labour Party, which threw its weight behind the “remain” campaign.
“A lot of people’s grievances are coming out and we have got to start listening to them,” said deputy Labour Party leader John McDonnell.
Indeed, the vote constituted a rebellion against the political, economic and social Establishment.
Farage called the result “a victory for ordinary people against the big banks, big business and big politics.”
Donald Trump praised the decision during a visit to one of his golf courses in Scotland, saying Britons “took back their country. It’s a great thing.” He likened the vote to the U.S. sentiment that has propelled him to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, saying people in the United States and the United Kingdom are angry about similar things.
“People are angry all over the world,” he said.
After winning a majority in Parliament in the last election, Cameron negotiated a package of reforms that he said would protect Britain’s sovereignty and prevent EU migrants from moving to the U.K. to claim generous public benefits.
Critics charged that those reforms were hollow, leaving Britain at the mercy of bureaucrats in Brussels and doing nothing to stem the tide of European immigrants who have come to the U.K. since the EU expanded eastward in 2004. The “leave” campaign accuses the immigrants of taxing Britain’s housing market, public services and employment rolls.
Those concerns were magnified by the refugee crisis of the past year that saw more than 1 million people from the Middle East and Africa flood into the EU as the continent’s leaders struggled to come up with a unified response.
Cameron’s efforts to find a slogan to counter the “leave” campaign’s emotive “take back control” settled on “Brits don’t quit.” But the appeal to a Churchillian bulldog spirit and stoicism proved too little, too late.
The slaying of pro-Europe lawmaker Jo Cox a week before the vote brought a shocked pause to both campaigns and appeared to shift momentum away from the “leave” camp. While it isn’t clear whether her killer was influenced by the EU debate, her death aroused fears that the referendum had stirred demons it would be difficult to subdue.
The result triggers a new series of negotiations that is expected to last two years or more as Britain and the EU search for a way to separate economies that have become intertwined since the U.K. joined the bloc on Jan. 1, 1973. Until those talks are completed, Britain will remain a member of the EU.
Exiting the EU involves taking the unprecedented step of invoking Article 50 of the EU’s governing treaty. While Greenland left an earlier, more limited version of the bloc in 1985, no country has ever invoked Article 50, so there is no roadmap for how the process will work.
Authorities ranging from the International Monetary Fund to the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of England have warned that a British exit will reverberate through a world economy that is only slowly recovering from the global economic crisis. The European Union is the world’s biggest economy and the U.K.’s most important trading partner, accounting for 45 percent of exports and 53 percent of imports.
In addition, the complex nature of Britain’s integration with the EU means that breaking up will be hard to do. The negotiations will go far beyond tariffs, including issues such as cross-border security, foreign policy cooperation and a common fisheries policy.
It will also affect the ability of professionals such as investment managers, accountants and lawyers to work in the EU, threatening London’s position as one of the world’s pre-eminent financial centers. The U.K. hosts more headquarters of non-EU firms than Germany, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands put together.
“We believe this outcome has serious implications for the City and many of our clients’ businesses with exposure to the U.K. and the EU,” said Malcolm Sweeting, senior partner of law firm Clifford Chance. “We are working alongside our clients to help them as they anticipate, plan for and manage the challenges the coming political and trade negotiations will bring.”

The breakdown of this vote is disturbing. Most young people voted to remain with the EU. But older voters were in the majority to exit the EU. This show that the youngsters are being indoctrinated to believe that they are ‘world citizens’ and not citizens of their nation. The same is happening here in the US. Youngsters in the US are being brainwashed into believing that the US isn’t important, and they’d rather be governed by some sort of international group. And of course this international group will be headed by George Soros types.
That has been the plan of the globalist for a very long time. After they endoctrinated our young, it would be time to exterminate the elderly…. That is why Brexit is so important to us as Americans to show us we can do the same and take our country back from the treasonous thieves.
Hail to the Brittish! For helping the world set the stage for Liberty around the globe…
Quite the opposite from their past history. Sometimes it’s Never too late to learn.
greg geitner says
i will be eternally grateful that i have lived long enough to see this world wide revolution. i have waited most of my life for this. the example of the people of GB is awesome.
King Kong vs. Godzilla says
I am so grateful That GB break off the EU for a good reason and a good Cause, the voters need to be smart about it… Especially refugees that is Killing any foreigner people and making World new Order as Muslim is taking over every country of Europe. It is Dangerous to gamble at this time to continue to have open Border with flooded of enemy enter the country. All Europe need to close their Border and remover Muslim population of Muslim and send them back to Middle Eastern where they belong within their country…. It is good the GB people not to listen to Barack OBAMA who “Threating” Britain to Play Obama play book that can destroy Great Britain. Of Course, American People didn’t realize what of become Barack Obama until too Late… American people have no clue of Obama “EVIL MUSLIM WORLD ORDER”…. The World already deep damaged and will take two decade to repair such ecomonic disaster….! The world must build their own Border…, otherwise, there is no country…. Donald Trump will be EXCELLENT next Present Of United Staes 2016..
Alicia salinas says
You are one silly dude. Thanks for the laugh!
I think you hit the nail right on the head with that comment. I don’t think we (USA) should be ruled by someone else (some will say we already are). No to the NWO. I do not want some other countries telling me how to live my life. It’s tough enough our own country tries to (the “do as I say, not as I do” country).
100% right Arthur. The youth of the world are being trained to accept being completely governed by the elite and being given everything instead of working for it. If you watch any interviews with the college age people — they know almost NOTHING about our history just what is progressive and that America has caused most of the problems in the world.
And who’s fault is that? Parents have not payed enough attention what has been thought in our schools! From kindergarten to high school the Socialist Democrat unions had their way. Then in Colledge they got the total indoctrination to Communisum.
By the time they are 18 they are entitled to VOTE with little or no experience. What can we expect of their future.
Paula-I agree with your observation. In general, the parents of our children today are too busy with themselves to be responsible about being their children’s parents. They ignore the rewriting of history by the left that is being taught in our schools, and find it easier to let the children raise themselves. There is no responsibilty and little desipline. Thank God for the few parents who have taken the time and responsibility to truely care about their children’s future.
Dr. William Redmond says
The current crop of kids basically have been corrupted through the distorted education of their parents, who went through the same bent education system. It only ever gets worse, never better.
The ones who took their eyes off the road and let this happen, at least let it get on this downward spiral of propaganda vs. actual education is the one two generation ago (the ’60s were a fun time for many of us (with the exception of the Vietnam War), but we let ourselves get sidetracked from what is important as Americans, and that is giving our kids a true picture of real American history, warts and all. We failed to make them understand that the freedoms they enjoy were born out of the pain of many generations and that there is a price that has to be constantly paid to keep those freedoms. We raised them to think they are entitled to everything without earning it or guarding it. I usually do not like generalizations, but this is a collective responsibility that we have abdicated. As a result, the students I have had, who supposedly had earned Bachelors degrees, were, on the whole, illiterate, ill-educated, spoiled entitled brats. Yes, there are a lot of exceptions to that generalization, and thank God for that, but unfortunately the generalization fits the majority of the people produced by our current education system. They are ignorant of the most basic knowledge of our country. I estimate that at least 90% of them have NEVER read even the preamble, much less the entire U.S. Constitution, much less the discussions and arguments that went into its birth.
Alicia salinas says
Mr. Redmond you are so right about the education system failing our kids, but social technology has 50/50 fault. Many HS student, cannot spell, even write a full paragraph, but school educators don’t think that’s important as long as they pass state driven test.
Remember when liberals called folks crazy conspiracy theorists for even mentioning globalization? In San Francisco it’s the indoctrinated college kids shouting for globalization. You think they’re being brain-washed by radical professors to follow this greedy money grab of our world? Ah, yes…one thing I learned as I grew older was how easily manipulated my friends and I were in our 20’s. Youth is throughout history used as useful idiots to accomplish the tasks for the greedy.
PAUL HARDING says
what a load of rubbish,im youngish and my son is young,we both voted out, simply because the EU is running our country against our wishes.would the USA let another country determine their laws, their manufacturing contracts, their healthcare( the list goes on) etc etc. my impression of the USA is they are very patriotic to their country, would you like the EU to run the USA. would you like the EU to rewrite the United States Constitution .that is what it is doing to our magna carta ,if we voted to stay in. I didnt think so
PAUL: I feel certain that you made a very Wise Choice. Now England is back in Control of their own Destiny. America needs to Regain control of itself. The laws of 1952 with the McCarren ———-Act are simply not being followed and this is leading to Violent Scenes within America. I am Praying and Hoping that our Nation will vote WISELY for our Pro-American Make America Great Candidate who endorses Our Constitution.
Hey Paul, I think that what was being said was a generalization, not a total condemnation of the youth of our planet.
Paul, that’s how they are going to take our guns away here in US…. Through the world group ..
Alicia salinas says
Is this more NRA propaganda?
Alicia salinas says
But, to ruin something that was acceptable, to having an economy that will make your life harder, is not sounding very good to me.
This is the first chink in the NWO. Meaning such a plan to make the whole world in to a unified intity is not a viable venture.
Look at all the poor who scrambled to europe for a life long free handout. They came to be supported by the working class which is disappearing. These people won’t stand up and fight their oppressors. This what happens when guns are taken away from the people. The leave their country to hide the umbrella of strong nation.
This indoctrination of the younger generation to the NWO is endangering all Higher Standards of Life which Americans (even the working class) have become accustomed to. The NWO would only benefit Officials and leave the general public dependent to their WHIMS. The younger generation just don’t know where the ramifications intended by the Dem’s would leave them. The young don’t realize just how bad things would likely go with a Hillary presidency or any Dem for that matter.
We have many calling themselves Republican but their thinking and actions and planning is Democratic!
Just watch the news…………listen to what some of those Republicans are saying and see what some of those Republicans are doing. Shameful! They are pouting and acting like little children who are not getting their way! They are going over to the enemy with what they are doing (and promising to do).
JIM HANE says
This indoctrination of the younger generation (mainly through our p.c. education system and the media) is happening throughout the entire Western world!
Saudi funding/donations is largely behind this.
We need to legally stop all foreign funding to universities, the media and large corporations in our nation. Politically correctness and the great white guilt are destroying Western civilization.
I’m overjoyed that the Brits made the right move in getting out of the EU. The EU is now economically dependent on Germany and France. Greece, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Poland etc are all economic parasites! Their workers are flooding into the richer EU member nations e.g. the UK, France and Germany and thus taking up jobs of the locals and depressing the wages of the locals.
Hopefully, France and Germany realize this and get the hell out of the EU!
We need a strong independent President with a good knowledge of business …… someone like Donald Trump. He’s not tied down by politically correctness or financially beholden to anyone like the other professional politicians.
The selfish p.c. elites have been in power for far too long! They act in their own selfish interests and not in the electorates interest!
JIM HANE says
I agree with everything you say. Young people throughout the West have been brainwashed by the politically correct educational system and our p.c. media into blindly accepting politically correctness blindly! Independent critical thinking, logical thought and the study of philosophy has been thrown out by our modern educational system.
The Saudis are spending billions of dollars to promote their Wahabbi school of Islam. The Saudis donate billions of dollars to the top Western universities, the media and to some lobbyists. Thus, these universities, large corporations and the media have to tow the Saudi line. These organisations have the same pro-Islam, anti-Israel and anti-American agenda.
We really need to cut Saudi donations and keep a very close watch on their money trail.
The Saudis know very well that our university educated young will be the future political and business leaders of our nation. Hence, they will spare nothing to brainwash and influence these young educated citizens of ours!
Arthur Hartsock says
Also London and the big financial people voted in favor of the EU. This is also similar to here in the US, where the huge banks and financial institutions are doing very well while the average citizen is struggling.
The British voters had the good sense to realize that they were not supporting their own nation, but contributing to other nations, leaving themselves poor and at risk for immigrant terrorists. At least they had the balls to get out!
rodney burke says
The EU is like the UN, a failure. Economically and every other way. It’s time for each one to take responsibility for their own like Norway and Finland by kicking out all the Muslims. a few others, VERY few have said Muslims are not welcome period! GB needs to go BACK to a conservative government the liberal have screwed them up. the muslims enclaves need to be invaded and destroyed and muslims either live by British law or get out! The mess there is the result of being too liberal and generous. it is PAST time to say NO MORE!
PAUL HARDING says
thank you .
Doomsday. It’s the end of UK. Soon, it will be a Muslim Country.
I’m confused . . . isn’t that a GOOD thing ? ? ? — ? ? ?
Doomsday. It’s the end of UK. Soon, it will be a Muslim Country.
Wrong, this is the beginning of getting RID of the Muslims who are weighing down and trying to remake Britain. Now they can officially boot their asses out, without some socialist wimp in Belgium saying they can’t..
It is a wait and see situation. I hope that you are right.
A well deserved victory for free range ,free willed independent human beings Congratulations lets get our world back from these under performing manipulators and their political correct fear propaganda and crony self enrichment state dependency schemes Friedman would be proud .
rodney burke says
I agree 100%
Randal Frost says
Great day for the United Kingdom. Finally a country awakens! The media is playing it like the end of the world. Showing the markets pushing down, but in reality, it is a great day. The markets will recover in the coming weeks, a buying opportunity if you had cash. Congratulations to the British people for taking their country back.
Christopher S. O'Rourke says
Great Britain is an island nation that is not even geographically attached to mainland Europe, the voters there in Great Britain see and know what reality
is, two other island nations which are Ireland & Iceland should & ought to leave the European Union if they are in it. The European Union should & ought
to be only European nations on mainland Europe only, not Atlantic island nations which are geographically apart from mainland Europe.
The Texan says
Good for Great Britain! They are an independent and sovereign nation.
Stephen Russell says
With UK leaving & maybe France, divided EU for sure.
May impact tourism alone, should be OK for UK.
wonder about borders since Ireland, Wales stay in EU vs UK.
Like seamless travel in EU with EU organz, dont need darn regulations killing business.
A few weeks ago SWTZERLAND again voted down to join the EU. Periodically the SOCIALISTS are trying subjugate their people to the tyranny of World Control ! Switzerland is one of the oldest Democraties in the world, PLEASE keep it that way!
HURRA for Great Britain, FREEDOM is worth any temporary financial loss .
rodney burke says
that’s the issue, freedom or temporary economic loss which can be recouped? The Eu needs to be dissolved. It is a failure just like the UN and this vote makes that even more clear than ever! The concept of the EU was control and now there is less for GB! When they get back conservative leadership they well be much better off. the labour party showed them it can’t lead!
I think maybe the Brits have initiated a revolution of sorts to retake the world from the elitists who think they can rule all of us. Congrats to the people of England. It also sounds to me that Cameron has taken some lessons from obama. I didn’t get my way so I am going to throw a hissy fit and then quit. Too bad because I kind of thought he was a pretty good guy, not that my opinion matters to anyone except me.
Alicia salinas says
Gerry; FYI: President Obama, hasn’t quit.
william sowles says
God and her Majesty saved England from the tyranny of the EU. God Save the Queen.
pedro pablo cabal says
A double whammy for the UK……….congratulations in recovering your sovereignty. It appears by the votes that the contamination of your great Country did not reach neck-high flood level.
The UK will be conducting a clean sweep of their country
No to NWO
The children of today are being BRAINWASHED. Into communism.
One thing we have to stop is COMMON CORE. And the testing the schools are performing on the kids. (The kids are not allowed to talk about what was asked on the tests. And the teachers aren’t allowed to know what is asked ). Very strange.
Wake up America and vote for TRUMP. he is the ONLY CHOICE to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!
Congratulations to the British citizens who voted to leave the EU. You took a stance in taking back your country and I applaud you. We in America are going through the same. We want our country back and many of us do want any part of the NWO. I believe we will prevail once we get rid of all those lying, greedy and corrupt politicians. They could give a rat’s ass about the people. GOD Bless Donald Trump, America, the U.K. and the Queen who is Keeper of the Faith.
I wonder how the Queen voted?
The joy of taking back one’s country seems to be mis placed as nobody is thinking about the-rightful and original owners but the thieves who
Is said to have colonised other people’s countries. For example where does Trump and his cronies factor in this new ownership of America
And if they do own it where does that place the first nation people of America. Next Trump will be supporting Australians to take back their country from the Aborigines .
Brexitis is the culmination of a short history of a people who once colonised most of the world, sucked it dry and now considers it necessary to fully extricate itself from all countries which were once used to build its economy.
Many of those who proudly call themselves IRISH are joining a group involved in taking back America and other countries which they took by force.
Interesting times are ahead.
Gregory Pek says
Phenomenal result. I still cant believe it and well done Nigel. A 20 year quest for your nation achieved. You saw it long before anyone else. This result is for the whole world. The NWO, globalist cabal are the most evil of all. They have screwed our knowledge, education, freedoms, national identity and taken away our right to self-govern. This was a huge nail in their coffin. The next big one will be a Trump victory this coming November. Well done England and Wales. From a Canadian.
Alicia salinas says
You are a Canadian, and you are rooting for Trump, didn’t your country vote against republic leaders. Why is it your business to be America’s politics.

By the same token Alicia .. why are you so interested in Englands politics?? or for that matter you seem to know alot about the Canadian politics … Why??

Newsflash to government bureaucrats everywhere: people around the world are tired of governments which burden us with regulations and debt. On Thursday the people of Great Britain decided to free themselves from the shackles of a socialist government that is eager to impose bad ideas upon its subjects.
Hillary Clinton and the Democrats will hopefully realize that similar sentiments exist in this country. Many of us are tired of a federal government that spends and borrows irresponsibly. We are tired of a Supreme Court and judicial system that has replaced the Constitution with judicial activism. We are tired of bureaucrats who feel they can decree science and then close the debate. We are tired of presidents like Barack Hussein Obama who seek to undermine the Constitution and take our rights away from us.
On Thursday the people of Great Britain spoke. On Nov. 8, Americans are going to speak. We want our country back!!!!!!!
Theresa L. says
I’m with you Justin.. I’ve seen alot in my 82 years … and all this has had me so frightened for the children who will be inheriting what America does now .. GOD Bless America!!!
When my grandparents came to America it was a ‘miracle’ to be chosen among all who have requested passage. Our imigration laws were fair to each country where people wanted to emigrate from. This open door policy of obuma’s is ruining all we stand for. (Or should I say ‘stood’ for??)
God bless England for their choice. I pray on Nov. 8th our country will also make the right choice. Electing Clinton will be another 4 years (or more) of obuma’s policies … the biggest was to ruin America ‘from the inside’..
From what i understand, at present the EU is “governed” by people who were never elected, and are accountable to no one. Wealthy banksters, mostly, and/or affiliated international corporation heads – most of whom worship evil and the evil one, himself.
“A Spaniard, a Greek, and an Italian go out to the bar to spend a night drinking. At the end of the night, who pays the bill? The German.”
i hope that the NWO/OWG goons are waking up to the fact that the People do not want them to be their masters or their rulers.
What is at the CORE of the problem, however, is that the Banksters have manipulated almost every country on the planet into accepting paper as money…paper THEY issue and control, while they amass REAL wealth in the form of items of intrinsic value, e.g. precious metals or stones, real estate, oil, trade goods, etc. This is the root cause of “inflation,” which is a hidden tax that steals from billions of people around the world by making the purchasing power of their paper less and less.
Many people have well-noted the dangers of unbacked paper, including George Washington, for starters, but it was Voltaire(Francois Marie Arouet) who wrote:
“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value — zero.”
There has never been a time when the foregoing observation was not true.
This will be the banksters next move, watch and see: they’ll crash the worlds economies so badly that it will make the Great Depression – a ten-year stretch or more, iirc – look like a jolly picnic in a park. Everyone who has “money in the bank” will suddenly realize it is worthless. Most have no clue that a provision of the USA PATRIOT act allows gov’t agents to SEIZE all contents of all safety deposit boxes, too…which is theft on a grand scale, nothing more.
What every country in this world needs to do – and virtually simultaneously, as well – is to follow Iceland’s example: arrest the banksters, convict them of fraud, expel them from every country on earth(hey, they own tankers, let them live aboard), and repudiate all their imaginary debt, which they created out of thin air quite purposely, in order to enslave us.
Here’s the ancient principle in effect. From the book of Proverbs: “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.”
Does anyone here realize that the plans of the NWO/OWG were to create “Unions” of different countries which effectively erased their borders, in preparation for the “unifying” One World Government? Yep, they want an Asian Union, a S. American Union, an African Union – and, of course, a North American Union, as well, comprised of Canada, Mexico, and America. Good for them, not so good for Liberty or US.
Just like during the last depression, these words are likely to come to pass again:
“It [the depression] was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence…. The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as the rulers of us all.”
– Congressman Louis T. McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee
The road ahead is clear. Out with the EU, next out with MO here. MO is more obama. We don’t need no MO stinking sharia law! MO is a vote for more toxic islamic meddling. Islam is a global crusade to establish islam as the state religion everywhere in the world.
Ayathuray Rajasingam says
Britain should have continued to remain in the European Union. It is a path to progress where mutual understanding between Nations are encouraged in a world of change. Such an exist from the EU will discourage the concept of being co-partners of a globalized community which will be a loss to Britain and will be isolated. Now Britain will find difficulty in marketing its products on account of increased tariffs. its auto and other industries will be affected, tourism and sports will also be affected, its currency and share markets are certain to plunge, will confront difficulties in facing counter-terrorism measures as such an exist from the EU will allow room for radical Islamic terrorists to creep into the country, co-operation from other countries will be reluctant, etc. What David Cameron did was right in stepping down.
So you’re a globalist, then, on the side of the Banksters who wish to rule and control the entire planet?
Kenneth Stelter says
This is a kick in the teeth for the Council on Foreign Relations – their plans for the European Union have a fracture and now other Countries like France and Netherlands plus others may follow. Heidi Cruz and the rest of the CFR committee for the “North American Union” are probably wondering how they will activate their plans for Canada, USA and Central America as a Union (aka Countries WITH OUT borders) fashioned after the CFR plan for the European Union
I say, Good show old man, jolly good show, Chin up, carry on, God save the Queen, you know. Kick out all the immagrant free loaders,
My ancestry is from Europe and England. Damn proud of the brits. Dump the NWO. it was a load of crap any any.
Happy rebirth to the uk. Freedom
Rules. You cannot have globalization
Of the world with one country
Making all the rules. Hopefully this
November america can shed the
Rules of oppression we have
Tolerated for eight years.
This vote is indeed telling all of the illegals etc to GET OUT and Don’t COME BACK!!!
HOPEFULLY AMERICANS will be as smart in NOVEMBER.
TRUMP KEEPS PROVING HIMSELF CORRECTLY!!! Good job UK!!!
Good luck, and throw the scum bags to the curb !!!! Stop allowing the leaches to come and hangar on. I may now enjoy visiting your country ! Way to go !!!!
America has its chance to be GREAT AGAIN!! Vote WISELY !!
God Bless America and God Bless President TRUMP!!
LTCOL Richard L. Malone says
Napoleon said “History is lies agreed upon.” This is as true today as in Napoleon’s day. Progressivism proves the point. Progressivism/Socialism/Communism/Nazi ism are alike. You cannot “fool all of the people all of the time”, but they will never quit trying.
Terry Hoffman says
They’re (likely) lucky; when the southern states left the US Union, the northern countries of the union attacked them.
Lincoln first had to reject offers from S. Carolina to buy Ft. Sumpter, then ignore their demand that he NOT re-supply that island. By resupplying it, he knew in advance that they’d fire on it, thus provoking his military response to force the South back into the Union.
In Britain’s case, there was a clear path and provision(section 50, or something?) to leave the EU.
In the Constitution, not so much – although Virginia, in particular, reserved the right to secede when their legislature ratified the Constitution(should the General government prove itself to be tyrannical at any point), the USG, however, arbitrarily declared that reservation of the right to secede to be invalid. IOW, the feds are certain there’s no “escape clause.” If the People disagree in large enough numbers, however, what they believe and what the truth is are miles apart.
Scan through the DoI again; there it is, that reservation of the right to change government or leave it behind…even though it is not Law per se, it certainly provided the blueprint for MANY country’s attempts to escape tyranny. In our case, financial tyranny of which most Americans remain quite ignorant.
Britain has never been part of continental Europe. I was surprised that they entered the EU in the first place.
Obama objected to brexit…now he will
Not become king of the globalization
Federation. Great britian deserves their
Freedom from forty thousand foreign
People making the most minute decisions
Affecting their daily lives. I just hope
America will be able to make a tough
Decision to keep us free.

I am a Brit, of Saxon heritage. The referendum issue was very simple -it is a question of identity. The faceless bureaucrats in Brussels and the elitist politicians in the UK and Europe needed to be taught a lesson. USA take note! You started off on the right foot, giving us (quite rightly) the cold shoulder -now take a look at what’s happening in ‘the land of the free’.
After reading this article. It becomes quite clear why Obama , the UN and the past presidents were trying so hard too do mass illegal imagration reform, our laws are not broken, He was following orders from the secretive little office in Brussels to allow this to happen. Mingle all the worlds people so we all become one mongaloid race. Right along with that, The EU has been after our government to confiscate all of our weapons, UN AGENDA (?) so the people have no means of self defence.
It was the job of the US to stir up the hornets nest in the middle to cause this migration to happen. And to create incidents to give cause. For more restrive laws. Maybe England can get her right to have personal firearms reinstated.
In one of the many documentaries I saw. One of our former generals showed an edict, that stated that we are supposed to take the seven middle eastern countries down, and to us the “Terrorist “plot as an excuss. Peace through war is the motto.
Anyone who has been watching these storeis as I have, I am sure are putting the pieces of this puzzle together. Some may not fit very well But the design has been exposed.
I have wondered how it is that the most well know crook on the campaign trail wins these elections, Stalin, said it best, “it only matters who counts the votes”. Well then WHO IS counting our votes.? And why is it so hard to get a re-count for varification?
After all we live in a society that has to verify every nats assed detail of everything, Why then is it so hard to verify a vote?. How many elegals have voted in our elections and then have gone home to some other country?. Why is there such resistance in this country to verify a voter and make darn that the person is legally elligable TO vote. Going to the court house with your birth certificate and swear under penalty of pergery that you are who you say you are. Why is that a bad requirement?. I’ll tell why, because if your here illegally you can’t do it.
. Hillery as president will do exactly as the “COUNCIL ON FORIGN RELATIONS” instructs her to do, All she is after is to fullfeill the UN agenda and the CFR, and for all we know the CFR may be a branch of the Brussels group.
Indeed this group of dispots, may be taking its orders directly from the Brussels office..
We have been loosing our rights slowly over the years. The turn down in job growth here in america disseminates poverty , poverty dissemenates crime. etc…. Which gives the government the answer to the problem. And the problem was engineered by the mites of the very rich and not so famous.(No accountability through anonimity). Those in power behind the scenes are pulling all the strings.
As Americans we have become very complacent in not paying close attention to what the elected our doing to our government. Obama declared to us that we should shut up and do what we’re told to do because we’re not smart enough to care of our own house. And Hillery expounded on this and supports it, and Has said as much!.. Do you really want her to laddel to you your food allowance?. And dictate where you live.
I suppose you could write a book on the cause and effect of these tiny little very rich turds and their subversive activites.
I finally seen the master plan of these world events, they don’t just happen. It is a master plan, being unleashed onto the world stage.
The Donald may not be the best pick, But I’ll vote for me because of his loyalty to this country. Hitlery”s loyalty is to her self agrandizment.
THANK YOU , GREAT BRITAIN, for your courage in staanding up against this experiment.
Bill CLinton said it best, That some shadow government runs this country. And thats why he couldn’t find out who killed Kennedy and do UFO”s exist. He said he was just a puppet.
And Trump is no bodies puppet.
