Byron

Did You Enjoy Brexit Night

Recommended Posts

First came the Newcastle result and the professor with hair problems looked put out.

Dimbleby and the luvvies, smiled because Newcastle voted remain, but the professor pointed out that the exit vote was far higher than expected.

THEN came Sunderland, huge out vote, girls being hoisted up on men's shoulders etc.

Consternation, pound fell off a cliff.

Later Swansea confounded the over confident remainers, a city, two universities, umpteen FE colleges.

They had pencilled Swansea in as remain, but no, the result was 'out' which completely ruined their swingometer thing, Swansea was there in the remain camp, glowing fiercely in 'out' colours.

Ecstatic, freedom at last.

As is traditional the first response must be to criticise the available options Byron ;)

I was so convinced that the vote was lost that I didn't listen to any news and only with great reluctance turned on the radio in the morning for the terrible news that the Remainers had won.

I thought I'd misheard the headline before realising that victory had been won against all the establishment propaganda.

I watched the historic night on catch up afterwards and enjoyed them tremendously.

So technically a "No", but that's only because I didn't watch them come in.

I am still revelling in the fact that for about 90 minutes the fate of the UK, indeed Europe, depended upon the good people of Swansea. David Dimberbly said so. Jeremey Vine had us right slap back in the middle of the swingometer.

To be honest, I believed that the vote would be narrowly lost so went to bed.

I was overjoyed when I saw the result the next morning! It was the most important day of the last 30-40yrs in my view.

I voted yes but in fact no.

Don't` like to watch PK`s either, I`d rather make a cup of tea.

Yes indeed, greatest day since 1945.

Hopefully mother May still `gets it`.

No I didn't because the BBC assured me Bremain had won so I went to bed and didn't get to see the luvvies on the Beeb getting bitch slapped.

Celebrated on here with a few others as the results came in, Gibraltar going 98% Remain had Dimbleby & co all smug, then Sunderland rocked them to the core.

T'was a fantastic night, i got through all 10 cans of lager i had in the fridge, earlier in the evening i had won £1668 on the horses so it was a magical night for me, i took me until the saturday to get over the booze & lack of sleep!

At about 2AM I saw Alex Salmond asked to comment. Without looking up from his phone he said 'the spread betting markets have just gone over to leave'. At that point I went to bed happy.

I'd went to the pub earlier (IIRC) then went home and fell asleep, feeling rather depressed about it all. Then woke up, looked at the headlines, and mis-read it two or three times until I cottoned on that the miracle had happened and Leave had won.

That was all the better because old fish face had said earlier, with much glee, that the betting markets are never wrong. So when it switched to leave his face was a real picture.

I lasted until about 5:30am. Election nights and the superbowl are two things I always want to stay up for and never get round to booking the day after off. Same this time but it really did seem like a special occasion, I was utterly convinced we would vote leave and so it was great vindication when the results started coming in. Result wasn't officially in when I went to bed but by that time ITV had called it and the BBC were still as "balanced" as ever although the professor fella was looking more and more uncertain in his comments.

I stayed up all night and towards the end kept thinking about Cameron getting slapped about the face with a fish :lol:.

Sturgeon or Salmond ?

I had little hope for Brexit. Couldn't believe it when I saw the result. Went out on the lash to celebrate with two other English guys, two French guys, and an Austrian. The Europeans weren't celebrating, because it made their lives a little more awkward, but they were in no doubt that they would just have to begin naturalisation proceedings and become British citizens. But they weren't overly bothered and were totally respectful of people voting remain. Unlike the ludicrous freak out of all the champagne socialist w*nkers at work.

Can't really understand why this poll has cropped up now. Are we to have VoE day celebrations on a monthly basis?

reaction of the day for me: weather woman, Carol Kirkwood, an inveterate beamer, presenting a gloriously sunny morning's weather, with a face better suited to the great storm of 87.

Clearly, one in the eye for Carol.

More important than the fall of the Berlin Wall then?

As a Briton I'd say yes. Obviously that's not the case if you're German or David Hasselhoff.

I stayed up and watched it all. It was one of the best nights of tv on the Vile BBC for years! Dimblebys face was priceless, oh the disappointment! Still makes me happy thinking about all those horrid leftie luvvies and media bores getting upset by democracy.

I must admit I got up quite early and watched it.

I didn't vote but thought the result was "one up Sauron's ring"! :blink:
