As one of those despicable EU migrants, this is beginning of the exodus out of the UK for my family

martintrojer05:06:03

#londout is my new favourite hashtag

yogidevbear05:06:06

What a disaster :slightly_frowning_face:

yogidevbear05:06:38

My home town voted remain

martintrojer05:06:55

your home town should leave the UK

dominicm06:06:00

Leicester voted in. No surprise there. The culture here doesn't even like the idea of "illegal immigrants" at all, no way would they vote leave. They're like a tiny yellow dot on the BBC's map

benedek06:06:47

Have similar feelings @martintrojer but my brain tells me a lot can happen still pro EU

benedek06:06:07

So stay put and see

benedek06:06:12

May well be just wishful thinking ;)

glenjamin07:06:48

I'm shocked by the ubiquity of leave in the north

martintrojer07:06:52

Hopefully I'll manage to sell my house before the housing bubble collapses

martintrojer07:06:03

Smart money is to sell now and rent

martintrojer07:06:12

(and then leave the UK in 2-3 years time)

agile_geek07:06:14

I am looking for a silver lining, so far all I can come up with is the road outside my house will be less congested when the Nissan plant closes 😦

martintrojer07:06:15

So, Cameron out

martintrojer07:06:19

Brois next PM tho

martintrojer07:06:29

Boris' EU gamle worked out

mccraigmccraig07:06:32

i'm not so sad - i'm not remotely worried by the seemingly typical brexiteer concerns of immigration and sovereignty, but i think the euro is going to tear the heart out of europe and it's best to be as clear of the wreckage as possible

agile_geek08:06:07

@martintrojer: this was transparently Boris' plan all along.

martintrojer08:06:30

@mccraigmccraig: .. and make a epic wreckage ourselves!

martintrojer08:06:24

I don't think for a moment that Boris cares about EU at all. Its just a vehicle to nr 10.

martintrojer08:06:31

very Game of Thrones

yogidevbear08:06:50

He didn't seem very popular when he finally emerged from nr20

yogidevbear08:06:17

@thomas: you ok?

thomas10:06:16

morning….

thomas10:06:28

I am kinda ok…

thomas10:06:30

most upsetting this morning was the reaction from a colleague this morning was that when I said he shouldn’t expect too much work from me today he lectured me on the fact that I was payed to do things and write code etc.

thomas10:06:10

And one of the my Spanish colleagues was already told this morning to back to Spain during the school run

thomas10:06:17

sad sad day

tcoupland10:06:35

@thomas that is very saddening and completely uncalled for

thomas10:06:02

@tcoupland: thank you… I’ll have a chat with my manager next week (he is out this week).

agile_geek10:06:54

@thomas I am not saddened by those reactions, I am ashamed...I am frequently ashamed of my nation, never more so than when I hear things like this.

yogidevbear11:06:22

@thomas: that's terrible. What's wrong with people? Seriously :slightly_frowning_face:

yogidevbear11:06:08

Right wing racist xenophobic twats

martintrojer11:06:18

lets all move the republic of scotland (proud member of EU)

rohit11:06:26

:unicorn_face:. Seconded

agile_geek11:06:47

I'd only have 70 miles further North to go!

martintrojer12:06:50

there will be enormous work opportunities in the government in 'project brexit'.

martintrojer12:06:11

should be offer our clojure skills to this end?

martintrojer12:06:27

(very expensively ofc, £350m / week anyone?)

thomas12:06:32

next the UK will leave the planet as well!

martintrojer12:06:42

airlift the sorry island to mars

martintrojer12:06:03

that probably what PM Farage wants anyway

thomas12:06:26

@martintrojer: £350m/week won’t be worth a lot actually 😞

martintrojer13:06:04

demand to be paid in euros

thomas13:06:19

just like that Ukip MEP who didn’t care that the pound went down… good idea!

agile_geek13:06:24

I guess he's just making hay while the sun shines as he'll be out of a job in two years.

thomas13:06:52

probably… and maybe the only positive thing to come out of all of this… Nigel Farage is out of a job now.

thomas13:06:59

no more Ukip

thomas14:06:17

besides… there won’t be a UK anymore anyway.

martintrojer14:06:16

UKIP will be even bigger in the next general election mark my words

martintrojer14:06:33

Boris (siding with Farage) just gave him lots of credability

otfrom14:06:15

I don't think there will be a UKIP as I think it quite likely they'll rejoin the Tories (unless he thinks he's become the new Labour party, which is another possibility)

martintrojer14:06:43

UKIP 3rd largest party next time around for sure

otfrom14:06:55

still smaller than SNP I bet

otfrom14:06:07

unless independence happens before then

martintrojer14:06:16

yeah, could do.

otfrom15:06:17

sounds like Brexit is going to be punished by the EU

otfrom15:06:26

“The chain reaction being celebrated everywhere now by Eurosceptics won’t happen,” he said, adding that the EU was the world’s biggest single market and “Britain has just cut its ties with that market. That’ll have consequences, and I don’t believe other countries will be encouraged to follow that dangerous path.” http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jun/24/top-eu-leader-we-want-britain-out-as-soon-as-possible

glenjamin15:06:53

‘continent taken hostage because of Tory party fight’ sounds about right

minimal15:06:01

the can’t do anything until project red button is implemented

thomas15:06:26

European politicians have no interest in making brexit go too smoothly...

thomas15:06:50

as that would only encourage eurosceptics in other countries.

glenjamin16:06:51

so, small countries with high taxes, decent public services, history of socialism. Possibly sunny. Any suggestions?
