With the UK vote to exit the European Union, attention moves to what the future holds for the European Union.
If the will of the people is to be respected, U.K. will leave the EU.

Can the EU project remain viable with a territory 60 million leaving the political project?

Will the U.K.'s departure see other secessionist movements and votes for departure across the EU?

Can the EU continue as a viable entity?

The UK were only ever half in the EU anyway. I wouldn't see it as a terrible loss.

When the citizens in an EU country get an opportunity to vote in a European referendum - as opposed to a European election vote - the people reject the overtures of the European Union.

It is a terrible loss because the UK was a valuable economic and political member of the EU.

That they may not have been enthusiastic is beside the point.


The crucial point is that the worlds fifth largest economy by country has decided that the European Union holds no future for them.


What message is that sending to the world at large and to the remaining stunned members of the EU now in a state of utter shock and bewilderment.?

[Maybe not Germany and Mr Junkers who do not care and IMV connived at this by refusing to give Cameron a decent deal that would have averted the Brexit.]

Good riddance to it.

Welcome to a Brave New World folks.

That is my prayer but let us not be to enthusiastic yet. Repeating referendums is an EU specialty.

Was it viable before the vote?

I doubt it is going to implode. Brussels is going to make life extremely difficult for the UK now so as to warn off anyone else from exiting too. Will likely turn more people against it but such is the way of these things.

How are they going to do that?

Britain IMV will actually prosper now that the dead hand of EU bureacracy has been lifted from it.

The UK is screwed. Within a decade it won't exist any more, and England will be begging to be readmitted.

Hopefully this EU Tower of Babel comes crashing down on the continent.

This Brexit vote is a fantastic victory for the nation state and a beautiful assertion of national sovereignty and pride in one's country!

Time for Ireland to get out of this horrible EU and make our land a nation once again!!!

It doesn't say much for the EU if the only way it can be kept together is threats towards those who leave rather than the benefits of remaining.

If the UK leaves they shouldn't be treated worse that other non-members just to make an example of them.
