    There is a two year negotiation period to allow a phased withdrawal vice an instant pull out.

    Smartest thing they could have done. Their economy hasn't been as good since they joined the EU.

    And now the money changers will crash the market, trigger a recession and blame it on a small country voting to take back its sovereignty from a bunch of socialist bureaucrats in far away lands

    Gotta love the hypocrisy: the UK colonized half the world, yet is bitching about immigrants. One thing is for certain... Brexit definitely has some implications for how the election in the US might turn out. The US is for more conservative than the UK, so the question of Trump being elected is no longer a question of possibility, but one of probability.

    They should have far more say in how many, and which ones, they accept.

    Not really hypocrisy when there are several generations separating the current Brits and the colonizers.

    How so? Don't forget, Hillary is 100 times for conservative than England's most conservative politician.

    The British Empire lasted until 1997, when Hong Kong was given back to China. Zimbabwe didn't become independent from the UK until 1980. Several generations? Yeah, okay.

    Because Hillary is not the one threatening to build a wall on the border with Mexico or put a moratorium on the immigration of Muslims.

    I don't think it's unrealistic to say there's a stronger anti-immigrant sentiment in the US than in the UK.
