EU will do everything it can to try to pull it back in and make massive concessions

If they can.  But if the country votes out, does that mean we get another vote?  There would be uproar if that happens.  Those who voted out, would accuse those proposing it as not having listened, and ask just how many votes do we have to do, until the answer is yes?  Which of course would be correct.

In theory I understand (might be wrong on this, as not sure of my source) that Parliament does not have to go with the result of the referendum.  In practice though they do.  If they don't, Farage would be voted in next time round.

I am positive that Parliament will deliver legislation that mirrors the outcome of the vote.

To not do so, will see riots, turmoil and general carnage. Ironically, I think it would also breaks some of the EU's founding principles of self determination.

It's also... simply put... not the British way.

I you vote out. Scotland will probably want to leave UK so they can stay in the EU. In that scenario i could see another "still think this is a good idea?" referendum.

Or Trump, Boris, or even Marine Le Pen.

OK thats a shock.

I tip Theresa May to be the next PM.  I hope so.  Otherwise it will be Boris J or even Gove.

edited for the spelling of Theresa.

I never, ever, thought I'd say it but I'm hoping for May too.

@ JasonD - you've opined in this direction before, but how long do you think London and the SE will be willing to continue subsidising the rest of the country, if Scotland goes, and they're left surrounded by Brexit-voting provinces?
I'd rather decline two drinks than one German adjective.

THAT was a extremely stupid move imo.

Looking at the age spread, it seems all the young Brits want to stay, all the seniors want to leave. Great f-ing move letting the old timers decide this.. gees..

  Funny really. Scotland nearly voted out because the voting age was dropped to 16.

  well at least they wont have to subsidise Scotland.

Who is out next?  Or will is scare everyone to stay in?

However, I am feeling bold today, but I say within a month, the markets will be about where they were.

There are rumours that the Education Sec Nicky Morgan is planning a run at the leadership... Interesting times.

Disappointing, it's gonna be a busy year or 10 sorting this out.
