EU Referendum Result
Posting this today* waking up to the result of the EU Referendum the UK having voted to leave the EU. I'm in shock am shaking and have butterflies I just didn't expect it, was so convinced that the Remain would win but thought it would be a close run thing.
Initial reaction by the markets has been inevitably volatile but hope they settle down soon. It is certainly going to be as a friend put it "an interesting year".

Been a few days since the shock out vote, and although expected people's disappointment what is upsetting is the vitriol from so many. And the calls for a second referendum are puzzling that is not how democracy works you don't keep voting until you get the result you want.
I can say this whole process has ignited my interest in politics so will be keeping a close eye on what happens in the coming months. Already Jeremy Corbyn's leadership is under threat with mass resignations from his cabinet. I know for sure I will NEVER vote Labour while he is leader.
