    so they won't have any power and will become angry men.

    And hamstringing the youth by foisting a future on them they didn't want will help them how?

    I was volunteering tonight and one of the women there has a daughter with British citizenship, living in Portugal. She has no idea what this will mean for her. Does she have to move back "home" even though she has a life and a business in Portugal?

    Then there are these geniuses.

    I find it fascinating the alignment of posters here toward the Brexit decision.

    When the UK decides to remain/rejoin the EU one of the stipulations should be a requirement the Brits need to change to driving on the right side of the road.

    The guy who I thought would be the next PM, won't be, as Boris Johnson decided not to run for the leadership position.

    And in other news, New Zealand has offered its top trade negotiator to help the UK exit the EU.

    And Scotland was actually much closer than it should have been...I want to say 55/45 vs. 70/30. I have a friend over there now and he said they voted that way not expecting to leave but rather only to signal Scottish interest in another independence vote...well ironically they'll possibly get that vote under circumstances they didn't expect.

    OK...buddy was wrong on that one. Still he said the sentiment of folks voting for the outcome of getting an independent vote for Scotland rather than seeing England leave the EU was pretty widespread.

    Not the point of course, but you digress.

    They overwhelmingly voted to stay, therefore neither purported motive was in play.

    So, Boris Johnson gets everyone frothed up to vote for the exit and then bows out of the Prime Minister hunt?

    What a *****.

    He got knifed by Gove. Boris was going to make Gove Chancellor of the Exchequer, but balked at making a top Gove aide Chief of Staff. Gove decided to muck up the works.

    Quentin Letts, a comedian of sorts for the Globe & Mail was interviewed on Sky News shortly after and said (among other things) "Those two old idjits made a terrible mistake - they trusted Sky News. Never do that."

    C'mon, Boris is coming in second in the schmuck polls after Farage bails out as head of the UKIP.
