Such excitement in the air! I voted leave..

in the AnimeSuki poll just because.......well, Anh_Minh already voiced my reason, and also because Haak voted remain.

The ones that pay the highest contributions to the EU is actually Germany.

The UK doesn't really suffer though, because in return for our contribution, we get to also spend money the other wealthy members put forward as well. The problem comes with how less wealthy nations have little to contribute which makes managing the entire thing a nightmare without more central power, but the UK doesn't get as much backlash from that.

Plus the EU also is our largest trading partner in the region. So it's not easy saying what would be equal return in this case.

Leave would be a worse option because of how unpredictable all the factors leading forward. Our government heads can't seem to decide how we should be conducting trade with the EU after we supposedly leave for starts.

With the half of Counting Areas votes accounted for, Remain votes lag behind by 400000 votes. Leave votes are starting to pull away. Uh-oh.

Fuck you and your UKIP, Farage.

People gotta bang heads in shame when looking at how many people can be too narrow-minded when you need pondering both options very carefully. Furthermore, it's disgusting to see the Leave camp win after they went as far as to kill a female MP who shared a different opinion.

Bookies are now giving it a 97% probability for the Leave! Leave is ahead by 700000 votes over Stay with 287 out of 382 Counting Areas accounted for.

Update: 306 out 382 Voting Areas are now accounted for with Leave ahead by 800000 votes over Stay.

I looked at the facts and I decided leave was the best option simple as that.

I'll be frank I think the EU is doomed to fail and has been on a crash course to collapse for along time, if I thought there was any chance that the EU could be reformed I would have voted remain but I don't think there's any chance of that happening now so I voted leave.

EU should have stayed as a trading block nothing more nothing less, not the take over and rule eveything bull it turned into.

What the hell does that have to do with how we should vote?

Are you trying to say we should have voted remain just because some lunatic shot somebody?

I hope you didn't ask UKIP for their "facts".

It's interesting to see that every single area in the north has voted for remain while the south is mostly for leave.

Are you any chance hinting at that South might be Donald Trump supporter even in England?

Fixed for you, Rafa Benitez style.

That duality between South and North is an everlasting problem. It's almost like returning to the days of Margaret Thatcher when the North was virtually left for dead by a number of conservative policies.

With Boris Johnson leading part of the separatist charge, I wouldn't be surprised.

Is this a reference I'm missing? I'm just stating that the spread is interesting.

I'd be interested if the remaining states have a lot of voters left. If they do then the vote might still swing either way.

Keep in mind this is a two year long process, so you don't have to worry about anything.

Leave has won, remain has no chance of winning now.

On strategy sense... yeah The Loyal Remain is totally surrounded by Rebel Leaving Force. With only pockets of loyal troops remained isolated from the capital London. Even the capital number itself is being worn down

Northern Ireland Expedition Force can make the difference? Maybe?

This looks effectively over as the vote count for Leave is almost 1 million ahead of the Stay. 311 out of 382 Voting Areas are already accounted for.
