Please recall that Prime Minister David Cameron repeatedly stated there will be no second vote.
Cameron also stipulated that he would invoke article 50 of the Lisbon treaty, which represents formal notification of a decision to leave the EU.
Unfortunately, the battle is not over. A key question remains: Is Cameron an even bigger liar than we all know?
Now that the vote is in, I fully expect all the other liars, notably French president Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to propose a second vote with added sweeteners.
Also note the Brexit vote is not legally binding. Cameron could easily resign, leaving this up to the next parliament to decide.
Either of those is arguably more likely than straight-up leave negotiations.
And we have yet to hear from European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker who no doubt will promise (lie) anything and everything to get another vote.
Vote by Country
I captured that snapshot earlier in the evening. I have no update but it is likely reasonably close.
What I am certain of is the two biggest votes for remain were Scotland and Northern Ireland.
I leave you with one final question: Whose country is this, and will Cameron support it?
