All we can do now is get a nice bottle of (Italian) wine and watch the proceedings. I'm off to Croatia for a holiday in a week, where my stirling will now be worth far less. hopefully when I return, the political mess will have either resolved itself, or grown so terrible that it coalesces into a physical manifestation that we can stab with pointy things. If it forms around Boris Johnson, I will shed no tears.

Well since the referendum is non-binding anyway, they can just ignore it. I have no idea what the parliment is like, but it seems like they should cram through a quick "No we really aren't leaving the EU" bill.

Most of the Tory party would never support such a bill, so it would stand no chance of passing. Even if it did, the electorate wouldn't stand for their vote being ignored by parliament and so UKIP would gain a lot of seats after the next General Election.

Still trying to work out what most of this panic trading will mean in the long run. I'm not at all surprised by the banks being hit hard like this.

Yeeees ... good points, but they've already been made. The "update" after he read some of the comments suggests he might have opened his eyes to the real (self-defeating but more strongly held than anything rational) reasons for the leave vote. In the main article he just sounds like another "expert".

When the establishment politicos and establishment media create a deprived, uneducated and self-radicalised mass over 20+ years, establishment business and establishment media can't really speak in the resulting debate.

They're all blond...

Altho it seems that Wilders dyes his hair, and Trump has at least dyed his in the past (not sure what Trump's natural hair color is).

And interestingly, Boris Johnson has some Turkish heritage (and my understanding is that one worry was that Turkey would join the EU and then a bunch of Turks would immigrate) and Wilders is at least rumored to have Indonesian heritage...

Wilders is definitely an 'Indo' (mixed Indonesian/Dutch) but he keeps lying about that.

Well, Wilders did warn us: if you let immigrant families from predominantly Muslim countries in, the first thing they want to do is change the laws to make the place more intolerant. I guess he knows what he is talking about.
