United Kingdom Votes To Leave

After 40 years being a member of the European Union the UK has now decided that it has not worked for them and and have made the democratic decision to “Leave”.

Nigel Farage was the first to announce in the early hours of this morning that the vote to leave had won on the figures he had before him at the time, Sky News followed shortly afterwards announcing a victory for ‘OUT”.

Nigel clearly was overjoyed with the victory and said it was a victory for real, ordinary and decent people, that the 23rd June should be remembered for the day the UK took back its independence.

This result was a clear indication that the majority of people in the UK were dissatisfied with the immigration policy and that the the isssue of overload on services including Health, Schooling and Housing was not acceptable anymore.

The pound sterling began to become erratic in its value against the Dollar and Euro from early in the morning dropping by  amounts not seen for more than 30 years, this is likely to continue for some while as the UK enters a period of uncertainty.

The Prime Minister and his cabinet will probably be in an emergency meeting as I am typing this blog, for many this was not an expected outcome, the polls got it wrong and also the Bookies who were way out in their calculation of the odds, last night quotes to remain were at around 10-1 on.

We now await news by the hour, day and week as to what happens next.
