Brexit -- 'Explosive shock' as Britain votes to leave EU, Cameron quits | Reuters:
Britain has voted to leave the European Union, forcing the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron and dealing the biggest blow since World War Two to the European project of forging greater unity. [see below]
Global financial markets plunged on Friday as results from a referendum defied bookmakers’ odds to show a 52-48 percent victory for the campaign to leave a bloc Britain joined more than 40 years ago.
The United Kingdom itself could now break apart, with the leader of Scotland - where nearly two-thirds of voters wanted to stay in the EU - saying a new referendum on independence from the rest of Britain was “highly likely”.

Brexiteers should have been prepared for the shattering intervention of the US. The European Union always was an American project.
It was Washington that drove European integration in the late 1940s, and funded it covertly under the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations.
The European Union always was a CIA project, as Brexiteers discover:
From what I can tell, EU was an American CIA project to consolidate lots of European states under one banner for easier control as part of its empire.
If that’s true then Brexit may be the first in a series of exits. With it, the collapse of the EU will weaken America’s totalitarian grip on world affairs, which hopefully leads to the end of NATO and corresponding reduction in American war crimes and terrorism abroad.
