Yesterday’s historic Brexit vote was a real nail-biter, but with all the votes counted, the UK voted to leave the European Union, 51.9 percent to 48.1 percent.

And somewhere, Margaret Thatcher is smiling.

Via Fox News.

The results in Britain’s referendum on its membership of the European Union are in. And what a result. Britain has voted to leave, by a margin of 52 percent in favor, or over 1.2 million votes. Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation Friday morning.

No pollster saw this coming. Nor did almost any of the Brexit campaigners. The evening opened with Nigel Farage, the leader of the U.K. Independence Party, announcing that he thought he’d lost. Everyone else thought the same way. And everyone was wrong….

There were lots of reasons to vote for Brexit. And there were reasons to vote against it. But the decision was taken in a democratic referendum, in which over 72 percent of eligible voters participated. And that kind of democracy was the best argument for Brexit.

Ultimately, the British people made up their own minds. They were told throughout by President Obama, by Cameron, and by a whole range of international organizations that they had to remain in the EU. And yet they decided to leave.

That decision was taken in an impeccably democratic way. In the future, Britain will govern itself as it has governed itself today: by decisions taken in Britain, not Brussels. There is no guarantee those decisions will be the right ones. But they will be British ones….

    Love all the business headlines—Dow PLUMMETS~! Oh My GAWD~!…Look closely, less than 5% down…should have had a correction months ago of more than 10% anyway because of the FED’s meddling. All the networks and pissant politicians do is peddle FUD: Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt.

    I think this is really good news for England and Donald Trump. This was a vote to protect the UK borders, which I what Trump wants to do here. What happens in England always comes here.

    It’s been such a hoot to watch the meltdown among libs–politicians, academics, journalists, and dumb bunnies. Job well done, “flyover” UK folks!

    I hope we can replicate what the Brits managed to achieve and move back toward independence. Looking at all the comments on social media from those saying it was a bad move; I find it amazing that the price they’re unwilling to pay for liberty and self-governance is a 7% drop in the market.

    I also find it amazing that liberals and socialists who rage constantly against the banks and wall street use the prosperity of the DOW as their metric to determine what is right. How have they been planning to take down Wall Street without causing stocks to fall? That’s some double-think right there. ‘stocks are through the roof, we’re really sticking it to the banks!’

    I will be dancing in the street and handing out candy for this one.

    Hope we can follow suit and break with the leftists this November.

    Stuart Varney’s coverage of Brexit on Thursday night was very good and entertaining.

    Indeed. Strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
