UK Votes To Leave EU In Historic Referendum by odeexpress(m): 7:47am On Jun 24, 2016
The UK has voted to leave the European Union after 43 years in a historic referendum. Leave won by 52% to 48% with England and Wales voting strongly for Brexit, while London, Scotland and Northern Ireland backed staying in the EU. UKIP leader Nigel Farage hailed it as the UK's "independence day" but the Remain camp called it a "catastrophe". The pound fell to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 as the markets reacted to the results.

The referendum turnout was 71.8% - with more than 30 million people voting - the highest turnout at a UK election since 1992.
Wales and the majority of England outside London voted in large numbers for Brexit.

I love the British.

Theirs is an example of a very democratic society where power actually is in the hands of the people. And they call the major shots.

Not the scam America is propagating world over as democracy.

Bravo Great Britain.
