Experts on TV say it will take to years to unwind the ties between the two. The £ lost 10 percent of its value vs the $ today.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 610.
CNBC digs in!
It seems to me that it was a foolish choice by British Prime Minister David Cameron, to offer a referendum at all. They say it was to placate a right wing challenge to his power in a recent vote. Now there is speculation that Scotland may want to rejoin the EU and possibly leave the UK.
Some British experts are deciding the implications on PBS right now. Someone suggested that the manufacturing people in a “LEAVE” area who make Nissan cars, will have hurt themselves by voting “leave” and making it harder for their employers to sell their products to the EU they just voted to break with!
This may break up the UK! Some say it could break up the EU! And the immigrants the Brits are afraid of turn out to be Poles!
[yes, too many !!!s]
The troubling implication is that the conservative, older, anti immigrant voters decided to dump the EU and those older white conservative voters in the US, are likely to vote for Trump in our election!
If right wingers vote like right wingers, this may be predictive for us.

According to “Morning Joe” Trump is trying to associate President Obama with the shooter in Orlando.
Trump inferred this in his non sentence way, that there was some kind of association between the two. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/06/trumps-implication-obama-was-involved-in-the-orlando-shooting/486770/
And there is this from Yahoo.com https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-show-isn-t-funny-000000627.html Regarding John Kasich’s disavowal of Trump.
When I asked him about Trump’s reaction to Orlando, he didn’t bother calibrating.
“’Terrible,” he told me. “Terrible. It’s not the way you operate as a leader. Terrible. ‘I told you so’? What’s the magic of that? You know, who doesn’t know we are vulnerable to radical Islam? Everyone knows we are vulnerable to it.
“And then,” Kasich went on, “to somehow insinuate that the president of the United States accepts this or condones this, it’s just outrageous.'”
Perhaps this event, is the bridge too far, at which some of us have been longing for Trump to arrive.
The hope being that when he gets there, people, (Republicans) will leave him.
Regarding the shootings in Orlando this past Sunday:
If let’s say, a war surplus dealer, was selling a bomb, that could kill or wound a hundred people at one time …
A hundred people!
we would ban that! This event was so horrific, nobody even mentions the wounded. He shot over a hundred people.
This was a hate crime of war. And it was conducted with a weapon of war.
