    Mehh I'm disappointed for sure but I'm not going to moan about the result, it is what it is.

    Though I am interested in Ferky & Cullion's analysis of what they see happening economically now?

    Bullshit. Weep for my amusement.

    Well, the butthurt in the above post is a good start.

    So, when should I plan my UK vacation to maximize the effect of the British Pounds plunge in value?

    Oh yeah I'm not interested in your bullshit at the moment Chuck.

    I've enough arguing over the last month & am just fatigued with it. Already instigated my Ogun banishing, it isn't doing me any good at the moment, time to uninstall & stop feeding it.

    Today, idiot. The panic has set in, and the pound is way oversold.

    The UK stock market and pound's value have to be seen in a bigger context. The value has substantially recovered and we're not talking about the volumes of money involved in the subprime crisis or the Eurozone crisis that started in Greece.

    What's important now is that whoever replaces Cameron honours the suggestion to replace the immigration system with something relaxed but meritocratic (closer to the Australian points system, no issues for skilled professionals), and generally sticks to a pro-Business agenda whilst free of the EU constraints that didn't make sense.

    If a wildly-excitable anti-immigration campaigner were to somehow replace him *then* we are fucked.

The sickness I was talking about was your propensity to kind of reach in and grasp on to something to define someone here. You harangue them about it and manipulate it in to conversations. You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    Short term - panic and stupidity will set in. Already seeing it. If you had an eye on a particular investment, today is a good day to buy it. Longer term - political instability in the UK will probably keep the pound depressed and at least a few multinational organizations will start to move their offices to more 'Euro friendly' areas. Some of your banks are already considering relocating to Dublin.

    This caught your politicians by surprise. Once you have a new PM, the negotiations of exactly how this is going to work can begin. Most analysts think this will take at least 2 years. In the meantime, a bunch of international agreements will have to be renegotiated. Canada, for example, is just about ready to sign a free trade agreement with the EU. We will have to now consider whether or not we want to continue in that arena. A big incentive for us was to supply LNG to the UK. That will now require a separate agreement.

    I think you can probably expect Scotland to demand another referendum. From what I'm reading the vote broke down pretty heavily to remain in London and other big cities, while the more rural vote was to exit. There also seems to be an age split as well.

    The real question will be how isolationist the UK government will want to be now. The vote seemed to indicate that most UK citizens don't want to take refugees, or allow the free flow of labour into the UK (polish tradesman, for example). My feeling is that you can probably expect a recession that will last awhile.
