And Now Some Unconnected Thoughts About The Result

The poor voted one way, the rich voted the other. The poor won because there are more of them.

Suddenly the future looks like a blank sheet. Lots of people- some of them not very nice- are getting their magic markers out ready to scribble, scribble, scribble...

The EU could collapse after this. So could the UK. Other countries will demand referenda. Scotland may demand a second vote on independence. Sinn Fein are saying, "This calls for a United Ireland".

Seems like Wales and England will stick together. They voted for Brexit by exactly the same margin.

Is this one of history's big turning points?

I wasn't expecting Cameron to go. I thought he'd have to have his fingers prised off the wheel. He is a bad man- a man without principles or ideas- and has been a very bad PM. The debacle was all his fault. He took a punt and lost.
