    The British people are so unused to having referendums. In Switzerland they have about 30 of these a year. The Brits did not really understand the consequences of their choices, but were led like sheep by ambitious politicians, namely Messrs. Farage, Johnson and Gove.

    You talk of snubbing the 'New World Order', but aren't we rather playing into their hands by creating chaos and uncertainty? Remember the old saying, 'Divide and Rule'...

    Dear Cidersomerset,

    I know about Switzerland's withdrawal, but that's hardly a counter argument. It can withdraw from a position of relative strength. It was never part of the EU, and negotiated its own agreements with them. This is not a drastic change for Switzerland, as Brexit will unfortunately be for Britain. Britain has changed the status quo, which is always disruptive. We have no idea whether this will be for good or ill.

    Perhaps you can tell me how Brexit will be of benefit to Britain if it suffers an economic and financial crash? Do you really think Britain has the foresight and imagination to create a new paradigm for itself? It hasn't done very well in the last 30 years. Where is the knight in shining armour to lead us to the new Albion?

    Best regards,

    John

    I'm not against David Icke at all, and I've come to admire him, but it doesn't always mean he's right. If what he says is true, are you prepared to live thru' the fallout, and watch the ordinary people suffer?

    Too many people are prepared to sit by and observe chaos in the world and assure themselves that it's really OK, so long as they are safe and sound somewhere else. We convince ourselves that the greatest good will prevail for the greatest number. But supposing you were that ordinary man in the street?

    Are you safe and well-protected?

    Frankly, this has made my day.

    In Actuality, this is a massive breakthrough.

    But in saying that, if there is some financial pain coming in the west which all the indications looking like there is within 6 months, this could certainly have been something that will be used as one of the main destabilizing factors. Its time now for the aware people of the UK to stand up and make sure this vote is held to.

    Too often have the pop of europe not been listened too. Twice in Ireland for example have we voted against changes to our constitution via European treaty ratification with a referendum. We voted No , they absolutely scare the insides out of the population and a year later have another referendum and it gets passed. Lets hope there is backbone to the side who have just won. The Establishment is going to come out all gunsd blazing on this one you can be sure.

    I'm happy to Brexit - although the consequences are yet to be seen and felt. Yes I can see the EU wanting to punish us ( LOL ! ) but stiffer upper lip and two fingers to them - GB - Well be back !
    Sad that over 50% would rather vote for an uncertain future than remain with what we had and where it was taking us - that is the telling point !

    Brexit has produced a highly volatile situation. Much will depend on how other European countries react. In France no referendum will be held, partly because it would play into the hands of the far right, which is definitely not the way to go, and partly because there is an upcoming presidential election. The problem then will be, like elsewhere, finding the quality personnel to take the country and Europe forward.
    Here is a nuanced response from European deputy Daniel Cohn-Bendit (semi-machine translation):
    - On LCI, Daniel Cohn-Bendit said he was "furious". "I thought some rationality would kick in. There are more private jets arriving in England than refugees. This is our fault! This Europe had to transform. Europe does not protect us because we are not building Europe. Merkel had a humane response to what was happening. Negotiating the exit will not be easy. Europeans will only get out of this situation if they redefine the European project. I want to get Europe moving, evolving towards a social Europe that protects us. Europe has become one of the key issues of the presidential campaign in France. I do not want this Europe of nations that leads to barbarism. I told François Holland: "you move with Angela Merkel, for Europe!"

    I am closely following the current situation on the markets. I have been expecting that the outcome of the Brexit vote is going to be what is going to set the direction for the markets from here - and I still think that. I had been speculating that maybe the Brexit pre-vote period was a move by the elites to create fear on the markets in order to get great price points, make them take position at those price points and that the outcome would be that UK would stay in the EU which would have calmed the markets and caused a rally from those price points.

    But, there are a number of ways the elites can play the markets and prior to a vote like this you could only speculate about the outcome, although the margin was little I was speculating in the wrong direction this time.

    It's hilarious how every single big people vote out there, like the U.S. presidential vote is turning out like close to 50% 50% and flips to one side a little at the end. I can't help but wonder if every rigged vote is like that...

    Anyway. On this thread last Saturday I wrote:

    "On May 27 2016 we had the highest trading volume in Gold in over a year. Traders were not active because they found Gold unattractive at the price 1213.80, it was the opposite - traders were jumping into Gold at an attractive price. At the same time the Dollar started to strengthen. This I think is going to be the hallmark of the way the markets are going to behave coming up - the price of Gold will likely keep rising for quite some time until the Gold has reached such levels when investors want to cash in on those profits."

    This is not less likely with the outcome of the UK leaving the EU. For quite some time I have found it likely that investors are going to lower their allocations into Oil and move into Gold, that's coming true.

    It's interesting to see how the various currencies react by the UK leave EU vote result. The British Pound has currently lost -7,5% of its value relative to the Japanese Yen. What all of this does though, is that it shakes the markets. What I find is key is how the Shanghai Stock Exchange reacts by all of this. Will it now do a new dip and when so what kind of dip is that?! Will that dip sync negatively such that at the worst possible moment the Gold enters a sell point too while the Oil is still up at high price levels due to the latest Oil rally? If that happens in the middle of a currency turbulence, it's the perfect storm. That could become quite dramatic.

    Well I'm pleasantly shocked with that outcome!

    As ever they will find ways to use our majority vote against us, the imminent aftermath wont be pretty...but I think its a small price to pay in the long run. I'd rather take the hit of rubbing salt in a wound than getting an infection thereafter.

    The most concerning thing I'm witnessing so far is the divide and conquer aspect...everywhere from social media to school gates, the discussion temperatures are at boiling point. Its quite ironic that the reason we either opted to leave or opted to remain was due to wanting to unite in some way and stand strong together for our children's futures...and use our peoples democracy to vote for what we honestly felt best for all...yet they're all arguing why their decision is the only valid decision.

    52% of us may have got the outcome we wished for but its only made the other 48% resent us...where's the positive in that

    Yes great change point for the world here I think.

    This for us in England is our start of the hard years 2016-2017 as predicted.

    I hope we get a humain new government to take us forwards though O.0

    I and my wife have no financial or physical resources to fall back upon, I have been long term ill and on benefits, so me and the wife are totally at the mercy of the tides just like the driftwood on a beach o.0

    But having said that I do think this is a positive part/step forward of the Awakening-World.

    I think there always will be the two options , trends, whatever you name it , common worldwide, the insiders - 'free local patriots point of view' and 'free worlds traveller' point of view .
    Local patriotism is acquired , in some cases even forced on the young generations from the human 'elders' because it seems to represent better security ,
    simpler orientation and decisioning process , secures 'the basics' , the land .

    The 'world citizen' or even 'universal citizen' viewpoint , whichever you hold is equally valid ,
    we do feel naturally responsible for others because they're living beings like us , not because their nationality and we do feel responsible for the planet we all live on , it's one planet .

    The myth of 'evil NWO' and 'liberation from oppressors' is also very real and could come to more reality but it's just a trend so far , a threat that won't happen readily .


    I may be wrong but somehow, I don't think this all really matters . What matters is in the hearts and minds of the young and 20 years later those will be navigating the 'spaceship earth' forwards who understand it,
    the interconnectedness of the ecosystem , the climate , the motion of tides and tectonic plates , the roots of our history ,
    the deeper unity and purpose .

    Britain's great past changed all human history, so did the past of other European nations. Everyone was once ( at least ) great and owned half of the Earths colonies .
    Now you're getting bit nervous because no one ever really sorted the post-colonial situation and people who grew your coffee beans are fighting wars and most - to be true- want your equal rights and living standards .

    France was once 'great', Germany was once 'great', Russia was once 'great', the Japan and China were once 'the great' and so and so forth.

    The problem is that those greats never went down without building on someones else shoulders and defeating the opponents in wars .

    It's not what the normal peaceful, world citizen wants to happen .


    See here from another pot : http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-36610027

    Quote A popular Russian paper said that a governmental working group was meeting up to discuss the national technological development programme. The programme envisages, among other things, that by 2035 Russia will develop its own programming language, secure communications systems and… teleportation.

    The 'fight' against so called globalism goes on and on now for decades which isn't conducted by those super-rich who can afford to live on their own island and own everything with their own trade mark ,

    it mostly comes from people who do not get the opportunity to travel, to expand personally, to feel home anywhere else than on their carefully fenced plot .


    Being alone and independent , YES. It just costs money and sometimes, lives at the end .



    I'll vote for UNICEF

    It'll be a rocky 5 years or so, but worth it in the end.
