#1 As the BBC said, They said Brexit was due to: an angry electorate, globalization, immigration, lost pride, and populism. I'd add another, the voters don't think their elected leaders are representing them. They don't like that the EU, the UN, the bankers and financiers are calling the shots. Similar issues in the U.S.

#3 Yes, my take as well Frank. In the current environment, selling is losing.

#9 Trump in Scotland Comments

Marine Le Pen and her niece Marion Marechal-Le Pen hailed the result and looked forward to "Frexit"

British holidaymakers make up the largest contingent of foreign visitors to this country and may now be deterred from coming - because it will be more expensive. - Some in Greece now talking Grexit.

Geert Wilders - the leader of the anti-Islam, anti-immigration Freedom Party - was among the first to congratulate Britain on its "Independence Day". He promised if he were elected, the Dutch would be granted their own "Nexit" referendum.

But some Russian politicians couldn't contain their pleasure. They included Moscow's Mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, who noted: "Without the UK in the EU, there's no one there who'll back sanctions against us so stridently."
Ultra-nationalist MP Vladimir Zhirinovsky said the British public "had performed a heroic deed". He said he intended to send a congratulatory telegram to David Cameron: "Dear David, our big friend, we're happy that Britain made the right choice."

#10 I agree with Frank G.

for example, Lloyds of London and Royal bank of Scotland are both down 20% as of a few minutes ago.

in another week or so they will probably recover at least half of that loss and in a year or so they may be in a better position than they would have been pre Brexit

Brexit is not the beginning of the end but rather the end of the beginning. We are not alone, despite what O, Hillary, Cameron, and Merkel think.
