Congratulations guys!

I hope the EU will go down and it goes into the way the EU should be, a simple free market with each countrys own currency.

Cheers from Deutschland.

It's going to be a long day. So much hate from the remainers, I've even received text messages from people I work with saying "I hope you're happy when it all goes wrong I'm blaming you"!

There's going to be a big backlash, lets face it, 48% of the population will be very unhappy today, full of insecuritires and aside from being totally shell shocked that this can happen, will be taking it out on the Brexiteers. I stand by Sovereignty, to see Europe divided is not what I wanted, but you can't take your democracy lightly either and someone has to make a stand against unreasonable demands made by the EU on its member states.

I think those of us who voted out need to hold our nerve and remember why we voted this way. There'll be a proper shit-storm in the media and really the last thing the country needs to send out to the world now are negative messages. The media have twisted and created so much in this referendum, especially regarding immigration, they should have a moral duty to wind their neck in and behave responsibly especially in the aftermath of such a dreadful referendum campaign stoked by the media.

For me Toni, it's not a suprise that European stocks are dropping more, the UK population has voted for democracy, economies thrive in democracy. We have stood by what we believe in the face of every doomsday prediction that could be thrown our way. The sterling dropped to new lows with Japanese and US currencies, they would be mad not to start pouring investments into sterling, "buy low", this will push the pound up, the UK hopefully will be seen as an investor safe haven compared to Europe, as the message goes out to the world that despite the UK undeniably having the best deal in Europe relative to other member states (something which other states were always contemptuous about), we still had the audacity and moral standing to tell them it's not good enough.

I suspect Europe will reel into a frenzy of tighter collaboration to weather the storm but you can't rule over people, you can only rule by consent. Back to the days of pre-maastricht would be a great start but I don't think Brussels will come around to that way of thinking unless the rest of Europe follows suit.

We're in unprecedented times and more than ever we will need good leadership to see us through. It's a shame that Cameron has resigned. I expected him to see his term out and appoint a new cabinet with sensible leavers in place providing a stable environment to see out his manifesto pledge. However I can understand his unwillingness not to trigger article 50 given his personal feelings on the matter.

They seem happy letting others in and then subsidising them.

Goodbye to the Euro more like. The pound will bounce back before the end of the day.

Just watched an interview with a German politician who says all members states should be given referendums to revert the EU to a collection of Sovereign states with trade agreements and to give up on the ESU concept.

We've definitely made some waves today. Love it.

Wow I've been hammered ALL day so far since I voted to Leave... the short sightedness of people is quite astounding as now we can open up more deals and do a lot more!

When asked if anyone I knew would "join" the EU as it is now I don't think any of them said yes, so why the hell did they all vote remain?!

Looking forward to seeing the progress of this, even though i'll be living on the other side of the world

Someone said to me "Why did you vote leave, I thought you were intelligent"

Classy.

I really can't understand how people who want democracy can fall out with friends/colleagues over this.

Knobs.

IS there any concrete arguments in the UK leaving the EU?

from what I've seen its been lies, up-in-the-air wishful thinking and optimistic speculation...

That may be so, but what were the reasons for staying?
Are you that happy with how things are?
Are you in a position where staying keeps the status quo?
Are you in a position where things are so shit that the only way is up?

I still haven't seen arguments for leaving other than immigration and look forward to seeing the manifesto when it comes.

Regardless of how you voted, the decision has been made and democracy demands we accept and make this work.

At least, that is what I think democratic society is or should be.

Not really wishing to go too deep into this but:
1. IF you think immigration is an issue, then leaving the EU will allow the UK to decide how many migrants to accept and where they come from.
2. IF you believe that the Euro is a disaster and the EU has failed to address fundamental structural problems with reference to the Mediterranean Economies being a basket case with huge unemployment linked to fiscal Union.
3. IF you think the £10bn (lets agree that's roughly the figure) a year we send net should not be used to build airports and motorways in Poland
4. IF you think we should have control of our own fishing stocks without being forced to share them across EU nations fleets (my father is a fisherman who has had catch restrictions imposed by the EU)

Then you would have compelling reasons to vote leave.

It's a personal perspective though, you might look at those points differently and come to different conclusions (dont mind imigration/euro success and spain/italy/greece dissaster anyway/£10bn well spent in poland/happy to share fish) but the above is factually substantiated.
