BREXIT - Results Thread!!!

So is anyone else hyped up over this?
The gambling websites seem to think UK will remain in the EU.

Playnow is offering 1.03:1 odds UK will remain
and 9:1 odds UK will exit.

The UK's EU referendum: All you need to know - BBC News
Quote:
What is happening?
A referendum is being held on Thursday, 23 June, to decide whether Britain should leave or remain in the European Union. This article is designed to be an easy-to-understand guide. Thanks for all your questions - we've answered a selection at the bottom of the page.

What is a referendum?
A referendum is basically a vote in which everyone (or nearly everyone) of voting age can take part, normally giving a "Yes" or "No" answer to a question. Whichever side gets more than half of all votes cast is considered to have won.

Why is a referendum being held?
Prime Minister David Cameron promised to hold one if he won the 2015 general election, in response to growing calls from his own Conservative MPs and the UK Independence Party (UKIP), who argued that Britain had not had a say since 1975, when it voted to stay in the EU in a referendum. The EU has changed a lot since then, gaining more control over our daily lives, they argued. Mr Cameron said: "It is time for the British people to have their say. It is time to settle this European question in British politics."

By all indications, it is going to be very, very close. It could have swung either way, and have been doing so for the last little bit. But I agree that the current climate seems to favour the Remain camp by just a bit.

Regardless of how the outcome turns out, I don't think either camp would be happy. The bitching (and controversy) are not going to stop.

There's been as much as a 20% undecided vote factor... and when it comes down to it, the type of people who say they're "not sure" when asked about something so clear cut will ALWAYS err on the side of caution when pushed to choose something. They will stay in the EU. Xenophobia over immigration is less important to most people than potentially destroying their financial net worth.

Personally, I don't know whether the undecided vote factor is bigger, or the actually coming out to vote factor is bigger. For reasons that are completely beyond my comprehension, a LOT of people do not come out and vote, even though they often make all kinds of noise supporting one side or the other.

I think the terrorist murder of the MP swayed many undecided to stay

I bet on the percentages though. Bet 365 currently has:

UK to remain at 65.01% - 70.00% (in play bet) - 20/1
UK to Remain at 60.01% - 66.00% (in play bet) - 13/2

So 50 bucks on 65-70 will net over 1000 bucks.
50 bucks on 60-66 will net almost 400.

I bet both, just to cover more ground, I think this vote will be more lopsided than some think.

The other interesting one that Bet365 has is regional specific voting, so you can bet on the outcome in like just england, or just scotland, or just wales. Trouble is I don't know much about politics in the individual areas, otherwise I could see some room to make money in some of those odds.

I think its a stupid reason to change your vote due to that incident. You would be changing for emotional reasons but not a logical one.

Not just GBP, pretty much anything except USD and JPY are taking the result hard.

USD:CAD went from 1.27x at close to 1.29x in matter of minutes.

Holy shxt... so glad I ordered my car parts before the Brexit polls...

While I am not surprised the Leave camp is leading, I am quite surprised by the margin they are leading with. 12% more votes than the Remain camp wasn't something I was expecting at all. I was expecting the margin to be within 5% for either side, and definitely no more than a 10% difference. But WOW...

As an aside, watching the Brexit vote count is way more exciting than watching the 3 Lions play in Euro 2016...
