    Scotland will likely get another referendum and leaving and Northern Ireland could potentially leave.
    A Northern Irish referendum to leave the UK is pointless at the moment as it is doomed to fail so therefore wont happen. Just because we voted to stay in the EU is not linked in any way to leaving the UK. We are a different kettle of fish to Scotland.

    I work for a French Canadian company, and my shares in them are practically worthless now. My life savings are now worth 30% less. Not in the greatest of moods this morning it must be said.

    BBC reporting that Cameron is about to come out and speak and rumour in press pack outside is that he will resign.

    Who will be the new PM then?

    I work for a council in Leeds and work with kids in care. They largely represent the views of more working class communities.

    Had a meeting with about 20 of them on Wednesday and was casually asking about the referendum. All of them bar one detailed the narrative in their homes which was

    "we should vote out to get rid of terrorists "

    Huge victory for The Sun and The Mail this morning basically.

    @richardiox

    Yup. We live on a council estate in the North. Sample quote from yesterday: "Nothing against the Pakis, but I'm voting for the school and hospitals"

    I don't blame Cameron for standing down. He did what he said he would. Stood up for what he believed in, and got stabbed in the back by Boris. I don't blame him for standing down in the face of his party saying he shouldn't resign "immediately"

    Using "immediately" like that is such a shitty veiled threat. "Don't worry. I am not going to kill you... immediately... just dig your own grave first..."

    Yes because being in the EU has no security/anti-terrorism benefits.

    Idiots.

    I live in Leeds and the only small consolation is that it's one of the only big cities to vote remain.

    Doesnt make shit all difference mind.

    Did Sheffield vote Leave? Despite their city (and much of the North) being regenerated in the 80s and 90s mainly from huge EU funding.

    Yorkshire was due to receive about 900mil of additional EU funding over next three years. Councils USED TO BE ABLE to apply for funds directly from Brussels thus partially circumventing our government austerity measures which hit the north the hardest. /despair

    It's mental.

    @MH-RobJenx

    Actually, nearly all big cities voted to remain. It's just that the "Remain" lead in the cities wasn't nearly as big as expected, compared to the countryside, where people wanted to leave overwhelmingly.

    Scotland and Ireland wanted to stay too.....

    Wonder how it had worked out if the Scottish Independence thing had come closer on the heel, or after this Brexit thing. I would have liked the EU to keep Scotland.

    Makes sense rural (wealthier?) areas wanted to leave. It's usually places with no immigrants / migrants that are totally scared shitless of immigrants.

    It still might....speaking to other parents at the school today, and on Facebook, people are talking about emigrating, or going for Scottish Independence - people who voted No last time, have changed their minds as they don't want to be part of a country like what the UK is now.

    This is a thing? Mine doesn't shut off at all until I turn it off. Can make a jug and it's hot all day.

    I feel sorry for the likes of Cornwall( which I have a lot of time for) - they are not a rich county.
    Now that they have voted to leave - the 60 million in EU funding is under threat - will the UK Gov' cover this shortfall in their economy?

    I doubt very much that the local fishing industry will recover greatly over the next two years either.

    I'm generally surprised the Leave camp won. According to the news, the majority of Scottish and Irish voters wanted to stay in the EU so I foresee another Scottish independence push.

    But seriously, while the benefits of leaving are less refugees and you don't need to pay annual membership fees to Belgium, the trade offs are you guys will go into a massive recession. Several EU countries and America have said they won't trade with Britain for a while. Also, Switzerland & Norway said Britain if want to trade with the EU need to pay non-member fees to do so like they do.

    @richardiox Yeah that funding will definitely be cancelled. I don't think the EU will hand out any funding to UK now.

    Yeah, I live in Cornwall, and I'm a little surprised that as a county we voted to leave. The EU has injected a lot of cash into what is one of the poorest counties in the country.

    I'm impressed you mad bastards! It would take another famine for Ireland to vote itself out of the EU.

    Not to be crass, but after all this is a gaming site; should I wait until Amazon UK get better cards or just order a Founder's Edition 1080 GTX now in case there are supply problems later?

    Surprised at Wales BTW, they'll be the first to suffer from the end of EU funds and the new cutbacks which, to be fair to the Brexit campaign , were clearly signposted in advance.
