It will be a tough road ahead, as already the pound is taking a beating, but just as it is neccesary to cut off a branch which had grown crooked or re-break a leg that has healed incorrectly, this is going to be good in the long run.

Congratulations on taking back your destiny. Hopefully the "Frexit" will follow and what remains of Europe can be called what it is: the German empire.

Huh.... so if your not part of the EU you can't be part of the globalized world, wow this whole time I thought the US was part of the globalized world, but I guess were not.

You do not need to give up your sovereignty and culture to be part of a "globalized" world.
Treaties and trade agreements will be made with Britain just like before the EU was an entity.

If the people of Scotland or Ireland feel that they should be there own sovereign nation then they should do it, That does not mean they cannot buy, sell, trade or even make treaties with Britain, the EU, or the US and Asia.

There sure seams to be a lot of panic and butthurt from the Socialist loving one world government types here today.

The US is a giant, continent-spanning collection of federated states already, so this is a pretty terrible metaphor.

One World Order - it's in the good book! It's just not the good part of the book!

We're thinking Germany will follow suit. It's not all it's cracked up to be. German currency was strong before and everything got thrown into one pot and it all became equal, right? That's kind of how I understood it back when Germany had a fit about it.

And what about Greece? Why continue to bail them out when they want to act like the drunk cousin of the family?

Do what's best for your own country. Things will be rough for a while as the union tries to make an example out of them. Meh?

It seems the over-all fall-out from the the destabilization of the Middle East continues, Thank the GHWBush & Tony Blair and the Republican Supported and Led Invasion of Iraq's Ripple Effect Legacy for these things.
Stay tune for more global fall-out from the Middle East Destabilization Generated Refugee Crisis to come, Likely followed by more ripples from the financial disaster the 2007-2008 banking mess created on a global scale.

Maybe now the Global Leaders will gather and support to create Safe Zones in these Middle Eastern Countries and some form of Re-Organization, so the Refugees can go back home.

Scotland wants independence so they can rejoin the EU on their own. They benefitted from the EU membership.

This is exactly what most of the news is saying this morning. The brits who voted out basically want their country back.
According to reports they feel they've become too diluted with no benefit except to those flooding in and big business that takes advantage of the cheap labor.

This can be good for Europe. Rather, the nations of Europe. The EU has gone to far in homogenizing the continent. One size does not fit all. A much slimmer, humble EU that doesn't meddle in national business or cross the decisions of popularly elected governments can accomplish more good work that one that pries into every nook and corner.

The ambition of bureaucrats everywhere exceeds their responsibility and capability. They always want to run one more thing. It should be the other way around: the people should run them. This is a big step in that direction.

Presumably green grocers can once again sell bananas by the pound and remain free of harassment by petty Eurocrats.


This bodes well for Donald Trump, as Margaret Thatcher's 1979 election foreshadowed Reagan's 1980 election.
