That would be a real aspiration! Wish we could vote on a UN referendum in Canada!

It's perfectly natural that those countries should follow their own aspirations. However, the value proposition was not that the EU would be "stronger together"--only that it would be more capable of obliterating more nationalities simultaneously and that the wishy-washy remnants would be easier to control.

Hope Scotland leaves. No country deserves a Quebec problem.

Ah, democracy.....


The British are frantically Googling what the E.U. is, hours after voting to leave it

"Even though I voted to leave, this morning I woke up and I just — the reality did actually hit me," one woman told the news channel ITV News. "If I'd had the opportunity to vote again, it would be to stay."

That confusion over what Brexit might mean for the country's economy appears to have been reflected across the United Kingdom on Thursday. Google reported sharp upticks in searches not only related to the ballot measure but also about basic questions concerning the implications of the vote. At about 1 a.m. Eastern time, about eight hours after the polls closed, Google reported that searches for "what happens if we leave the EU" had more than tripled.

Of course they're Googling it... because the exit process is not entirely clear. Too many variables.

Glad that "one woman" who remains anonymous wanted to change her vote. It wouldn't have changed the outcome.

Beside the fact that this makes perfect sense--the people Googling it are those who voted against Brexit.

You prefer a good, old-fashioned, progressive, socialist dictatorship? Where all your decisions are made for you, whether you are informed or not?

Roll eyes, indeed...

Most progs imagine themselves as one of the wise people who gets to dole out the orders instead of one of the proles.
