Like criminals trying to destroy evidence.
Sorry guys, the Internet doesn't forget. Pay day will eventually come.
When will the first leaver be sued for felony?
The official Leave campaign has wiped almost its entire website from the internet. The site – which previously included the suggestion that the EU budget would be sent back to the NHS and included promises about trade deals – now just has a message thanking supporters.

Full disclosure, but only after the vote. sigh.
SO a new independent Britain is dawning as the UK prepares to leave the EU. But what will it mean for your personal finances? Will your holidays cost more? Is your pension going to be affected? We …

U.K. researchers and their organizations have reacted with dismay to last night’s decision by the U.K. electorate to leave the European Union. Science and technology were not a major talking point during the referendum campaign, but numerous scientists and research organizations urged voters to preserve the United Kingdom’s E.U. membership.

How would you like a (not-so) United Kingdom with Boris Johnson as prime minister and Nigel Farage as foreign minister?

Markets have already taken a hit, but if Britain leaves the European Union, don’t expect a recovery any time soon.

B4 anyone blames young people 4 not turning out 2 vote in the EU referendum, here's an important quote: "That reflects a decade-long decline in youth participation in British elections, said James Sloam, an expert in political participation of young people at the University of Royal Holloway. Turnout for the group has slipped from an average of about 60% two decades ago to just 40% at the last general election.

It is a trend not mirrored in other European countries and there has been a dangerous tendency to blame voters for disengaging, rather than asking why politicians cannot inspire them, Sloam and younger activists said.

“I have heard from many older, but also Leave voters, that it is our own fault, that young people are getting exactly what they deserve for not voting, but this is such a damaging view,” said Izabela Pawlic, a politics student at Royal Holloway University who organised a voter registration drive. She pointed to widespread frustration at both the timing of the referendum, as students were moving home or to take up summer jobs, and a change in voter registration rules that confused many first-time voters at universities and college.". There's also the issue of it being held on a Thursday as well. The referendum should've been held on a Sunday in late July or August & registration should've lasted until mid - late July, so this way young people would have more of a say. But no, many Brexiters are blaming the young for not turning up & calling them lazy & accusing them of throwing a temper tantrum, while they're the 1's who are throwing a temper tantrum b/c people have spoken up to challenge this unfair referendum plot & the negative consequences as a result of the outcome of this referendum. There's lastly the issue of many former leave voters changing their minds as a result of the negative consequences as a result of the outcome of this referendum. This is why many Brits are demanding a 2nd referendum & rightfully so. I'm sorry that I disagree with +Kevin Logan (+Kevin Francis Logan+John Iadarola on this issue, but instead agree w/the #Regrexit / #Bregret /2nd EU referendum movement like +Ujames1978Rises A.K.A +Ujames1978Eternally, +Ujames1978LivesOn & +Ujames1978Forever on this issue.
Having overwhelmingly voted to remain, many feel betrayed by an older generation who turned their backs on Europe but who will not be around to see the damage wreaked

Melanie Reid says young people should take to the streets and peacefully demand a halt to Brexit.

Many of these young people weren't able to vote b/c many of them were coming home from university/college &/or weren't able 2 register @ the time b/c they had 2 take tests, were away from home & were very busy. Also, having the vote on a Thursday rather than a Sunday is really disgusting as well.

It’s like Silicon Valley ordering a big one (earthquake) just because they are so bored with their everyday life… UK has now triggered a massive global political, constitutional, economic and financial disaster that makes the Greek crisis look like a cute joke…
I can’t believe being in the 21st century and seeing an entire nation in civilised and developed Europe making itself redundant with such an amazing stubbornness. It’s just unbelievable! And we are all impacted!
