Brexit: Britain has voted to leave the European Union

Brexit: Britain has voted to leave the European Union

Britain has voted to leave the European Union in a referendum, with the result throwing into question the fate of the 28-nation bloc and several high-profile British politicians, including the prime minister.

When asked whether [Prime Minister] Cameron should resign, Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP which had backed a vote to Leave, said: "immediately".

"The dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom," he said to loud cheers at a Leave campaign party.

"I hope this victory brings down this failed project and leads us to a Europe of sovereign nation states, trading together, being friends together, cooperating together, and let's get rid of the flag, the anthem, Brussels and all that has gone wrong."

"Let June the 23rd go down in history as our Independence Day."

Farage went on to accuse Cameron and former prime ministers Gordon Brown and Tony Blair of "irresponsible, open-door mass-immigration that has damaged the quality of life of ordinary, decent people in this country."

"People at the poorer end of society feel that the large number of EU migrants, and other migrants, that have come in has been to their disadvantage; that it has hurt access to schools, access to housing, pushed down wages at the bottom end of the wage scale.

Wild Thing's comment..........

The Muslims started imposing their values on native population.
This is uprising against Jihad and the global monster I would assume.

"Battle of Britain Speech" - Winston Churchill - June 18, 1940

"... What General Weygand has called The Battle of France is over. The battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British life and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of a perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, "This was their finest hour".

History may record today as Britain's second finest hour.

Three cheers for the Brits. I am willing to bet that the muslim problem was the turning point in this election. Now maybe some of the others will say goodbye to the EU. I remember that the EU was formed primarily as an economic opponent to America. How's that Euro working out folks!

The crazy Scots want to stay in the EU and out of the UK. Those hardheads just don't know what is best for them.
