Yep, 43 areas left to return the count with the leave vote about 1M ahead.

Well, that's it folks.
A strong backing from England has pushed them past 50%.

This sure will be interesting.

I did hear today that a vote like this will be the effective end of Cameron. Not sure if it will be worth the costs, but I am happy if he gets "The Hook".

Any feedback from those who know better than I?

Cameron has now resigned.

My Google+ circles seem to be saddened and despairing of the Brexit decision.

Now it looks like the Dutch and maybe the French want to do something too.

And Scotland may want to rethink its UK referendum so they can go back to the EU.

Technically speaking, the UK hasn't left it yet. There's a lot that needs to be done before the exit is official, and this can take several years.

But yes, Scotland (and possibly Northern Ireland too) might want to ditch the English and the Welsh.

I skimmed somewhere that after Article 50 notification occurs they are out in two years regardless of how all the other negotiations and legal stuff works out.

That's correct. Cameron will probably invoke Article 50 from Lisbon treatment to trigger the UK European Union leave.

Cameron has said 'It would be for the new prime minister to carry out negotiations with the EU and invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would give the UK two years to negotiate its withdrawal'. So we haven't invoked it immediately and may not until October.

As long as they don't feel they have to do it as quickly as possible. The slower we leave the better.
Why not get everything done that we can before invoking Article 50?
