That would be a stain on democracy itself. These fucknuts had their chance to analyze both sides and logically pick one that was best suited to their interests. Voting happened and this is the result.

They weren't voting for the employee of the week, they were voting for the future of their fucking country. I'm glad the EU is trying to push them out ASAP.

They voted. Now they must relish in their decision.

Online petitions are about as effective as brushing your teeth with maple syrup.

The biggest stain on democracy is that 90% of voters have no idea what the fuck they are doing.

The worst thing about democracy is voters who think they know what's best for everyone else.

Saw this on my FB feed, and I am appalled by the things that some of these "young people" are saying...

https://www.facebook.com/theguardian...4285363056323/



Dudes and dudettes, everyone in the country had an equal chance to come out and vote. The majority of the "old farts" came out to exercise their rights, while the majority of the younger generation did not come out to do so. What is there to blame, bitch, and complain about at all?

An Iranian was beaten then set on fire to die only a few years ago... even the police didnt help in the initial assaults.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8kXWgomQEU
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...aedophile.html





Like the 7 year cycle calendar that I posted last year, we're also into a jubilee (every 50) year.
The medias subtle brainwashing (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qpw-GbEpjR4),
false flag 911,
and the creation of "islamic" terror groups
were to throne in total control of the middle east... specially in energy rich Iran.

Of course ISIS is on its way out and the plan has failed on this Jubilee, so who knows what plan b is now and how it will effect Canada.
If we do or dont confront Russia, China and Iran.. either way Im thinking we'll eventually turn out like the Brazilian model. Someone getting shot in the street everyday.
Spoiler!

Its too bad so many of your reasonable thoughts get muddled in with the ridiculous ones, because some of your points I agree strongly with.

The fallout from Brexit is really turning out to be more dramatic than anything anyone can possibly imagine. From the lack of any post-Leave plans, to the denial of responsibilities from all kinds of politicians, to the infighting and implosion of political parties and individual political careers, to the Scotland and Gibraltar's own EU plans...

I feel like I'm in a position to and just watch everything unfold, but somehow, I know the fallout will ripple through the world and drag us down one way or another as well...

it's been pretty entertaining watching things unfold...the amount of clueless people who voted to leave is staggering.

From the stuff I've seen so far, Cameron seems to be the one of the smartest escapees from the fallout even though he is losing his job as a result of this. I can almost picture him smirking at the clueless Leave camp folks for the mess that is worsening by the minute.

Man oh man... Since when did voting to leave the EU give license to violent racist attacks.

I can only imagine what will happen in the USA if Trump gets in, anyone of colour better run for safety somewhere else... not even joking.

This really sucks because I was planning to move to the UK on ancestral citizenship since things are so stupid expensive in Vancouver, but my wife is Chinese... way too risky now it seems like, no way I'll be able to convince her to go or would want to if this is what we'd have to deal with.

My interest in the Brexit is minimal to slightly interested. Thank you The Guardian for the coles notes.

Quote:
Here's where things stand at 1am GMT

The fourth day after Britain voted to exit the European Union has been a febrile one. Here’s where things stand:

-Shockwaves from the vote have been reverberating around the world economy. A trillion dollars were wiped off world stock markets on Monday, adding to $2tn in losses on Friday, making this the largest two-day stock rout of all time.

-The Sterling continued to lose value, dropping to just $1.32, its lowest point in more than 30 years.
Fitch became the third major ratings agency to downgrade the UK’s credit rating, following Standard & Poor’s earlier on Monday and Moody’s on Friday.

-Jeremy Corbyn has vowed to stay on despite mass resignations from his shadow cabinet and a tense meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party during which Labour MPs agreed to hold a no-confidence vote in Corbyn’s leadership.

-The Labour leader addressed a massed rally in Parliament Square after the meeting. He didn’t mention any leadership crisis.

-The Conservative party’s own leadership contest continued to bubble, with chancellor George Osborne formally ruling himself out.

-Nicola Sturgeon, the leader of the Scottish National Party, has reportedly begun exploring ways for Scotland - and Gibraltar, and possibly also Northern Ireland - to stay in the EU despite the vote.

England was the most racist place I have ever been, and I've been to a lot of places.

and this was back in 2006. they've always been racist.

London was ok. a lot less racist. a lot more minorities.

but those smaller cities... lol. every single night i was called a jap and to go home. or people would push me and try to start fights. shoulder check me and laugh. every single night. They all looked like soccer hooligan types. lol.

I had the same problems there back in 2007 so almost the same time as you... but I was just there last summer 2015 and it was a great experience, no issues whatsoever and totally different attitudes everywhere we went. Seems it's risen to the surface again.
