HOW BRITAIN VOTED IN THE E.U. REFERENDUM

By GREGOR AISCH, ADAM PEARCE and KARL RUSSELL

UPDATED June 24, 2016

Britons voted on Thursday to leave the European Union. The Leave side led with 17.4 million votes, or 52 percent, versus the Remain side’s 16.1 million, or 48 percent, with a turnout of around 72 percent.

Personal Comment:

Never seen such a beautiful and complex map in life; A map that is going to change the Europe in particular and world in general...!

12,69,501 voters decides UK's future with EU. Referendum was b/w long term and short term interests and fears of the British people. Result reflects that UK has preferred short term objectives over the long term. Xenophobia, looks like, overtook minds of majority Brits. It is a set back to the EU which would most likely start a chain reaction. It will weaken NATO, EU, Euro-zone, Schengen and much more. Center of Gravity of Europe has been shaken with its waves felt all over the world. None of the stock markets could withstand the outcome of UK Brexit results.
Scotland is considering another referendum for independence from UK......And this time, unlike 2014, they have well prepared ground to step for independence.
