Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The leave camp seem to be saying very little at all, not even celebrating.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm not celebrating because:

1) I'm not convinced the UK is actually going to leave the EU.
2) If it does, it will be painful. Necessary, but painful. One doesn't celebrate a course of antibiotics that you know will make you spend the next week in the bathroom, even if you know in your heart that they'll make you better in the end.
3) Almost everybody I know is a Remain supporter. They were utterly devastated on Friday morning. Several of them were very rude to me. I didn't have the heart to rub their noses in their defeat, even if I'd wanted to. Friends are still friends even if they vote the wrong way in a referendum!
