Quote: The U.K. has voted to leave the European Union by a 52 percent to 48 percent margin, the BBC and others predict.

—In a historic vote, the United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union by a 52-percent-to-48-percent margin, according to forecasts from the BBC, ITV, and others.

The stunning move opens up a Pandora's box of questions not only about how the U.K. will extricate itself from the 28-member bloc and the relationship it will have with it, but also about the future of British Prime Minister David Cameron’s government, of the country itself, and of the EU, post-World War II Europe's most ambitious political experiment.


It's official! Britain is out of the EU.

I was in favor of the UK leaving, I don't think that the U.K. benefits or needs the EU.

This is a huge crack in the dike. Frankly, the Euros should have just left it as a trade bloc instead of trying to create a "United States of Europe" run by unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels.

The Telegraph's Tim Stanley waxes rhapsodic, calling this "a vote of confidence in Britain":

No. People wanted to have their say and they did. Up and down the country they defied the experts and went with their conscience. Labour voters most of all: the northeast rebelled against a century of Labour leadership. I am astonished. Staggered. Humbled. I should never have lost faith in my countrymen. Those bold, brave, beautiful British voters.

...When I was leaving my polling station, I said to a chap: “I found voting quite emotional.” He replied that this was the day we got our freedom back. That’s how it feels for millions of Britons. This was the day the British people defied their jailers

Yet another chapter in the great string of people voting against their own interests.

The British People have made a foolish decision today.

I don't know if you know this, but Obama isn't a British politician and the Brexit has nothing whatsoever to do with him, or the United States in general. Sorry to disappont you.

"I know you are but what am I ?"

Extreme weak-sauce.

No, it was more like calling liberals Master Yoda and conservatives Luke Skywalker in the skill of crying like a bitch.

I feel like I've just seen a massive mistake be made.

Why do you think that making a gigantic economic decision based on the dislike of immigrants would be a mistake? I honestly don't see how that could go wrong.
