Britain votes out of EU

Fri, Jun 24, 2016, 11:12 AM
Britain has voted to leave the European Union to take greater control of its economy and its borders, shattering the stability of the continental unity forged after the World War II.

The decision launches what will be years of negotiations over trade, business and political links with the EU, which will shrink it to a 27-nation bloc.

Official results released early Friday show the “leave” side prevailed 52 percent to 48 percent in Thursday’s vote, which had a turnout of 72 percent.

The UK is the first major country to decide to leave the bloc, which evolved from the ashes of the war as the region’s leaders sought to build links and avert future hostility.

Meanwhile, the EU countries are making fun of the British stiff upper lip. They were prepared to offer any concession to the British if they stayed put.
