So now that David Cameron is resigning who will the Tories pick next for PM?

Boris Johnson would seem like an obvious choice, he's always been a favorite and has gotten a huge boost with this referendum, but he'd probably be really polarizing for the party right now considering he was the most vocal Leave supporter so he'll likely be blocked by the former Remain MPs of the party.

Another strong contender is Theresa May it seems, but i don't know much about her, she seems very low energy and bland really.

Michael Gove seems like a strong contender too, principled conservative guy, though his neoconservative views are for me a turn-off and his stance of the NHS will likely turn off voters who practically worship it.

Ruth Davidson, the leader of the Scottish conservative party gained notoriety after debating in favor of Remain in the BBC debate, but she'd be a long shot.

Most likely Boris Johnson. He was one of the first cons for Brexit and he's extremely well known.

Kanadetenshi may be right though, Boris could be very divisive. I doubt it will be Gove because he's genuinely hated in parts of the party and the country.

Probably won't be Ian Duncan Smith because he had it and failed before.

Could be May.

Well Farage called for a Brexit government, so they'll have to choose someone pro-leave if they want to survive next general election.

Epic victory.

But the people have spoken, I can only respect that. I still think they made a huge mistake.
From a law perspective this is going to be extremely interesting though. I don't think any country has ever experienced having to replace so much law in such a short amount of time.

You're right, the outcome has to be respected.

I think there'll be a lot of very angry Brexit people over the next few years though as they realise that:

1. The promised dividend from leaving isn't going to appear
2. Much of the EU regulation will have to be retained
3. New EU regulation will still have to be adopted

That's leaving aside the speculative stuff on the economy, the above are certainties.

Yes, it's obvious me and him have a disagreement here. But he's addressing the whole immigration issue, which I've continuously also been against. That's why I've been calling for opt-outs like the Danes have. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danish_opt-outs_from_the_European_Union
I've never said the EU was some divine, perfect thing, pretty much the contrary. I've only supported the EU because of the single market. I'm fully against any regulation that does not relate to the single market.

Now, I know some are going to ask "shouldn't UK just follow the European Free Trade Association."
Sure. But they won't have any influence on the regulation. If Brexit supporters argument is that the EU is undemocratic, then joining EFTA would be directly contradictory to their own principles.

I don't think the Remain camp ever tackled the immigration issue and the Brexit camp never covered the economic and democratic issues.

In order to gain full access to the european free trade area we have to accept free movement of people. Which is not likely

Low or nonexistent tarriffs was literally the only good thing about the EU. Since Britain wasn't stupid enough to give up its currency, they stand to benefit very little from leaving. And even in the EU Britain could just laugh at anything the EU wanted to do that Britain didn't want. If they don't try to keep free trade, Brexit would hurt much more than it could help. I don't think the EU should exist but that issue isn't on the table at the moment. That's why I can't make up my mind on Brexit. If it were Germany or France I'd be all for it.

I think it will bounce back again somewhat but remain below where it was - I guess it's been based on a bet that Brexit wouldn't happen and this is the correction.

It'll probably dive again as negotiations begin.

The pound dropping is not due to free trade lol

Its due to globalist investors trowing a hissyfit when the results are not in their favour no matter how much lobbyist money they throw at it

Currencies and stocks tend to plummet following big changes, good or bad. Investors don't like volatility which stems from change. But they'll get over it in time. It's economic success will be measurable in months or years, immediate market reactions can largely be ignored

the exchange rate is the lynch pin of free trade and it significantly influenced by capital flows which is influenced by domestic investment opportunities

net capital outflow = net exports

Duh

but notice that it is still the fucking morning and that NO POLICIES have changed since the results were announced. GB is effectively still in the EU till they formally leave and abandon whatever agreements they had come to. This remains to be done

If this was independent of globalist effect, we would see the effect in a few weeks, not immediately like this. This is purely due to cucked globalist investors.

Thats my point
"People" (read: big bankers and malicious pseudo-oligarchs) are causing the effect, no policy. This is not due to the leaving of the EU and hence nothing to do with free trade, it is due to shitty investors. Any effect due to free trade would not be as immediate. Furthermore, free trade can very easily be maintained nowadays even w/o EU. Just look at norway and switzerland.

By leaving the EU, the markets are becoming freer. Less regulation. Less retarded laws. Less subsidies. Less taxes. Trade performance will likely be just as decent as it has been before.

The EU will continue making deals with the UK, they can't afford not to. Plus now they're in a much better position to negotiate with emerging markets like Switzerland and Norway do.

The stock market drop isn't that surprising since market trends tend to go wild during moments of uncertainty, but they usually adjust pretty quickly.
