london - Brits get the Liberation where Brexit camp on aanstuurde. They leave the European Union. A small majority of the country has chosen a Brexit. The turnout in the referendum was surprisingly large, significantly higher than in normal elections.

Nigel Farage, leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, was around four o'clock in the morning, local time, the first to claim victory. He called it a victory for real, decent people. '

The North of England voted in large numbers for a departure. The overwhelming majority of Londoners who opted for EU membership was insufficient to prevent a Brexit. Scots voted massively against Brexit, while residents of Wales, a country that receives a lot of EU money, just voted for a Brexit.

The result comes as a surprise. Although the polls a neck-and-neck predicted, it was expected that Britain would back still scared at the last minute for the consequences of a Brexit. The pound rose during the polling and betting shops also counted on a victory for Staying camp.

From the time the votes were counted showed the support for a departure in the EU far greater than had been predicted. In almost any city or district, the share of the Brexit voters higher than estimated before. During the last night declined pound value by almost 10%. It is the lowest rate against the dollar since 1985. The expectation is that British equity prices will collapse.

The outcome has major political implications. The reputation of Prime Minister David Cameron and Finance Minister George Osborne is shattered. Although Cameron received the support of a large part of his insurgent group, it is likely that he will leave soon.

Labour also has a problem. The party was officially for EU membership. A large part of the grassroots, especially in the north of the country, did not care about the official party line.

The pro-EU camp in recent months has conducted a thoroughly negative campaign. The focus was constantly on the disastrous economic consequences of a departure from the EU. This so-called Project Fear worked two years ago during the Scottish referendum on independence. Now, however, soon found that voters were tired of the constant hammering of possible trouble. It led in the past to a widely shared aversion to anyone who called himself an expert.
