Happy Independence Day, UK! It will be tough at first, but you will better off in the long run. We had a Brexit 240 years ago and OK, you will too.

It is a good day. I am nervous for the future but at least it is OUR future. We can only blame ourselves if it goes wrong. No one else.

The Scottish government are looking to get another independence from the UK vote now.

I think we are going to see some cash migration into the US of course. This will prevent a rise in interest rates. Not always a good thing.
Also, Japan will be a place to put cash even with a negative interest rate. Germany and the Nortic countries with good economies are going to see more cash.
The losers are going to be those that are worse than broke. Greece, one of the reason this is happening, needs a miracle.

There has already been talks from Denmark, France, The Netherlands and Italy that they now want a vote.

This could be the beginning of the end.

Devastating news. A victory for old, paranoid protectionists, the same demographic that supports Trump in the U.S. This will penalize all the wrong people. The emerging economies in Eastern Europe will get hit hard. The Polish zloty dropped significantly this morning, second only to Pounds Sterling. Be careful who you target; you always run the risk of hitting innocent bystanders. Decisions made out of fear and paranoia are rarely valid.

The majority of Scots are a patient lot to say the least.

The Scottish will not vote to leave IMO. The SNP have ruined the country since they have been in government. Plus any new EU membership is dependant on taking on The Euro. Yeah right. Good luck on that one.

The Scots will stay as long as the free sh*t train keeps rolling north. They loved the free sh*t that the EU offers up to broke people, hence why Scotland voted so heavily to remain. One of the best things financially that could happen to the UK is to ditch Scotland.

ETA: Good on ya UK for ditching the EU yoke. I've been rooting for you guys, and glad to see the results. Good luck!

I agree but we have history and I would not want to see them leave personally. If the Scottish really wanted independence from the UK they would have voted for the UK to leave the EU so as to force the issue.

From the country that joined both WWI and WWII at halftime? And never suffered any of the cost or destruction of direct attack?

What goes around comes around. Not like they weren't trying to conquer the world for decades beforehand....

This is why they say: Be careful what you wish for.
Higher prices on everything imported into the UK and an increased likelihood
of a recession. Their young will no longer have the opportunity to go to
school, work, or just easily travel throughout Europe.
Not exactly sky falling, but not good either.

It never stopped anyone before the EU became a political union.
