The pound is already down to a 31-year low. Wall Street is not going to be happy about this.

I think this is going to have far reaching effects including bolstering Trump's positions...........listening to different news sources populism is gaining strength fast.

Merkel has to be pretty nervous right about now.

Unfortunately it is a narrow vote. 48.2% remain, 51.8% leave. Close enough that the Merkel loving politicians will finagle some work around.

Here's one Englishman who sincerely hopes Scotland votes for independence, we're fed up with their constant whinging.
