God save the queen. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
I watched the live feed on youtube by the BBC World News. I took notes as I watched.
10/15/2016, update: The BBC has posted a copy of the coverage, 10 hours and 59 minutes of it, for historical reference. Grab some popcorn and click here.
4:00 pm CST
I started watching BBC World News coverage of the Brexit vote. I occassionally jumped over to Fox News coverage. Fox kept talking Trump and American election.
From the beginning of the BBC coverage, it looked like a slight edge in favor of REMAIN. Nigel Farage, UKIP, mentioned that slight edge.
The weather was not friendly to the vote in half of the nation.
A points during the broadcast, the board operator screwed up BIG TIME. There was a minute or two of an HBO movie that came out of nowhere.
4:56 pm Nigel has reversed himself on his prediction.
5:26 pm No results yet. The announcers are filling with crap.
5:34 - 5:59 pm, I took a break.
6:00 pm It is looking like REMAIN will win with some strength. REMAIN leading by 18,000.
6:02 pm 63,598 to 65,400 with REMAIN leading.
6:09 pm Nigel is semi-conceding. He has now conceded, un-conceded, and semi-conceded.
6:16 pm 27,256 in favor for REMAIN.
6:17 pm Sunderland is in and the count is LEAVE ahead by 3,208.
6:32 pm Whoever is doing the graphic inserts is a complete screwup.
7:08 pm God Save the Queen! Do it now, so that he will stop playing the damned song!
7:12 pm LEAVE ahead by 18,778!
7:17 pm LEAVE aheade 6,818.
If London and Scotland make the vote, the country will explode.
7:12 pm LEAVE 25,869
7:38 pm LEAVE 3,027
7:47 pm LEAVE 73,872
7:55 pm LEAVE 112,373
8:23 pm REMAIN 52,787
8:30 pm REMAIN 62,142
8:51 pm REMAIN 13.765
8:53 pm REMAIN 4,071
8:54 pm REMAIN 55,311
8:59 pm LEAVE 18,019
I took a quick nap.
10:05 pm LEAVE: 423,975
10:40 pm CALLED FOR LEAVE!
This vote has delivered a big punch in the mouth to Brussels. The Eurocrats are now going into complete panic mode. Let the fun begin! Article 50, which calls for a two year negotiation followed by an exit, should soon be invoked. Immigration laws will soon have to be passed. The looks like the elitists have started to get the message… This is going to be one hell of a ride!
Something tells me Merkel is going to have a really bad day tomorrow.
This vote was stunning. I hoped that Britain would get out of the EU, but I thought they would fail to pull it off. Interestingly, Scotland voted “NO” to independence two years ago. Scotland voted against Brexit tonight. Will Scotland go for independence and separations from Britain? The weasels are circling…
