It's official: Britain is leaving the EU. Any thoughts on the matter?

They really screwed themselves. But hey, xenophobia tends to do that.

I have a lot of thoughts on this matter, mostly "what the fuck is wrong with you people," but I don't have much time to sit here and rant, so here are my two foremost thoughts:

1) As a (now) former EU citizen (British dual citizenship, my dad was born in Luton), I am very, very pissed that I no longer have the right to live and travel in the EU, and I had no say in the matter. I'm outraged, really.

2) Scottish independence is impending. The referendum not so long ago (last year? two years ago?) voted in favour of remaining in the UK, mainly because the EU said that an independent Scotland would not have EU membership. And now the UK has voted themselves out of the EU. I see another referendum very soon. The votes reflect this:

I'm generally in favor of decentralization in order to provide more choice and to avoid the existence of political superpowers, so I'm not crying a river over this. That said, I'm also in favor of freedom of movement and lax borders, because it makes being able to choose which country you live in more feasible.

It's also funny to see people who are just now realizing the problem with democracy. I've seen a couple people suggest that the solution is to only allow young people to vote, but that's just discriminatory and terrible. The real solution is, again, decentralization and choice. I've seen a sort of decentralization suggested where the areas who voted remain would be split from the areas who voted stay, but that was probably just a joke.
