    I am not sure of economic implications, but this is a victory for people over government, the western world over socialism, small government over big government and the little guy over the leftist media.

    Long may the world of idiots continue to shrivel.

    The Federal Register would be in the ballpark of 50,000,000 words. Would be interested if anyone has a more accurate figure.

    Bloomberg, Figueres underline climate risks of Brexit

    “A UK vote to leave the European Union would hit efforts to tackle global warming, former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg and UN climate chief Christiana Figueres1 warned on Wednesday.”
    . . .
    The message is loud & clear.

    UK to EU – Good Riddance – 2 words.

    ps note the politeness. There are other 2 words which likely fit better but for a Judith thread I’m restraining myself, all Brit like.

    80,000 documents for UK to unwind. Still worth it.

    Has Hausfrau Merkel put the immigration welcome mat to all those who voted to ‘stay’ but now want to clear out of the UK, I see can a bunch of illegal immigrants getting mowed down in the rush from the oncoming immigrants from the UK , chasing Merkel dream world of welfare!

    how will this play out on our election?

    Minimal. Neither party positioned themselves to take advantage of it.

    Words fail. Thankfully the whale scale of the EU sale of kale paper-trail may soon be literally beyond the English Pale.

  16. Cod n chips

    Hooray! The Brits will be able to buy cucumbers with a bend in them and get their fishing grounds back ,like Iceland. The Royal Navy will be busy chasing EU fish harvesters out of territorial waters Fish and Chips will Reign again ,bugger the curries.
