These people are really starting to annoy me now. Stop acting like babies chucking their toys out of the pram. You lost get over it. How pathetic are you lot. The vote didn't go your way, shame. Either get over it or move to Scotland.

There'll be a day when you realise your debt to the Remainers campaigning to save the UK...if you disagree tell me what the plan is to plug the financial holes and take Britain forward? Or point me to a plan given by any pro-Brexit politician?

I voted remain. In not having a tantrum. I'm devastated this country now seems to be full of hateful people. You've f***ed the uk and made it a very unstable future for the young. Good work xenophobes.

For 40 years you lot have been complaining about the EU and straight bananas or whatever and you're getting a bit peeved that we're complaining when you vote to wreck the country. Suck it up.

I voted remain, I think it's the wrong decision to leave and spells out a disaster for us in future. However the most important and fundamental aspect is that democracy prevails and I must accept the majority of the nation despite my reservations.

Rather than moaning about the Remain vote, perhaps you could outline for us what happens now? Or what you want to happen now?

........Banks have already begun to take action to shift operations out of the UK, but most of their staff will have to wait several months to find out how many thousands of them will be asked to move to fledgling financial hotspots like Paris, Dublin and Frankfurt.
Investment banks, who donated heavily to the Remain campaign, have reacted immediately to Britain’s referendum result, with some of London’s largest institutions approaching regulators to secure licences and lining up executives to relocate.
The big US banks — JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley — have large operations employing tens of thousands of people in the UK. They have historically set up their regulated businesses in Britain and then used its right to “passport” into the rest of the 28-member bloc.
But lawyers are warning that after Brexit, they would likely need a new legal home base, so they are preparing to shift at least some work to cities such as Dublin, Paris and Frankfurt.
UK banks were also re-evaluating what to do with their businesses that trade EU — ...........

@Financial Times , so you've got copy and paste worked out well done , now perhaps you'd like to tell us your opinion or some things that HAVE happened not may happen .

The reason no-one can fell us what the plan is is because there is no plan. The Leave campaigners are falling over themselves to deny responsibility for the catastrophe they know is coming and never expected because they didn't think they'd win. Duncan-Smith said yesterday there were no promises made, just a series of possibilities, Boris has said immigration numbers may not fall, Liam Fox has said a lot of things - even triggering article 50 - said in the campaign have to be reconsidered, Farage has admitted to "mistakes" in what was said, Carswell has distanced himself from the campaign, and now this too...thank God some people saw through them before it was too late. Sadly not enough.

Don't worry people, it's never going to happen, as the establishment backtracking machine kicks into gear.

It appears that Leave voters have generally been ordinary working people; whereas the remainers are those who work in the banking or public sectors, and more likely to lose out if jobs are transferred to Europe.
But it was a democratic vote, and a final one. Get over it.

I thought that on the 23rd this country held a democratic vote and that whether remain or brexit won the result was final.
Lewes was one of the main reasons this country got a parliament after the battle of Lewes, which surely meant the government of the time has to listen to the overall majority of the electorate.
We have voted, the result stands, people should get over it and hope we get some politicians with spines unlike Cameron who could not jump ship quick enough and begin to get things sorted as quick as possible.
And if the Jocks don't like it let them go back to Scotland, they need us much more than we need them.

It would appear that the remain group are only keen on democracy when it suits them. Now the toys are being thrown out of the pram because they lost. If it had happened the other way around I bet you any money you like they would would be saying "It was a democratic vote" etc.
Any attempt at a re -vote would undermine what little confidence people had in Government leading to the thought of "why bother voting in the future" if results get overturned?
In previous elections if your party is not voted in did you start throwing tantrums and demanding a re vote? No ! To most people if your party lost an election you accept the result and get on with life....

Yes, it was a democratic vote, but the turn out was not high enough for my liking. I would be happier to accept the result if the turn out had been 80% or above. If we like Australia's immigration policy then perhaps we should follow their electoral policy and adopt compulsory voting which gives a real and proper flavour of what the people actually think. Then and only then would we know what the other 28% think even if they had put in blank papers because they didn't know which option to take. It's the 28% who didn't vote that could have given a much more definitive result, either way. It's a bit like voting for PCCs on a majority of a low (10%) turn out. Ludicrous to think that it's a real vote for anything. And no, the Australians don't have the answers for everything - just some things, like electoral policy and car safety and young drivers (their under 25s deaths on the roads are so low because they are trained better and have stiffer penalties for lots of common offences in the under 25 age group.)

Strange how many people keep banging on about the remain camp having lost. We have ALL lost, that is the point, but some people are too drunk on what they perceive to be a great victory that they can't, or won't, see it.

More profit warnings from major employers, 200,000 job losses now likely, pound still dropping and now at 31 year low, no-one running the country, no strong opposition to fill the vacuum, no plan to fix anything which is making economy worse, state owned (ie owned by us) RBS in crisis and worth 40% less than Thursday, the EU wanting us out quickly, petrol prices and therefore food prices about to rise sharply, interest rates going to be cut so our pensions are worth much less, and Scotland going to leave sooner. Brexit is going well.

On the plus side, Parliament won't pass a decision that'll harm the UK so a rejection of the referendum is made more likely the longer this goes on.

The people who voted to remain for a bunch of braindead morons. Thank God they lost. What a useless waste of space they are. With any luck many of them will emigrate to their beloved Europe, once the UK is independent. We can do without a bunch of spineless lefties. The majority of this country do not agree with your pathetic views.

Project Fear?.... More like project Headless Chicken. Boris, Gove et al better get a plan and sort this out quickly, otherwise we really will have had it! Great Britain eh? I think not!

I think it is unlikely that the IMF will be involved at all in our deficit Tom. The government have offered to give lots of money... more
