The last 24 hours have been weird for me. I’m not surprised very often. When it happens, I’m not sure how to react. But in this case HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS DID IT! I can’t fucking believe this! Against the polls, against the betting pools, and against the odds, you Brits pulled it off! You told the corrupt, incompetent, fascist EU to go fuck itself and left it! Congratulations! You are now your own sovereign nation once again!
Holy crap, I’m proud of you guys. I’m still a little shocked. Wow!
Don’t get me wrong; in the long run, Europe is still screwed along with the rest of the West, but regardless this is the best news the Western world has heard in about 20 years.
I’m doing seminars and consulting in London in October, and now I’m even more excited to go than before. I can’t even articulate how happy I am for my UK brothers. Jolly good. 🙂 My usual constant smile was a little bigger today.
On the economic front, the British pound is down about 10% to a historic low (lowest levels since 1985) and the FTSE 100 Index (England’s equivalent of the Dow) is down 200 points today as of this writing. The Dow is down 3.5% today.
This is what I expected to happen if the UK left the EU. The UK will probably be in for a short lived, temporary recession as it re-adjusts to its new sovereign condition once again. It’s normal and to be expected, but I fully expect the UK to experience an economic mini-boom once the pain is over with.
I put my money where my mouth is. Today I purchased both British pounds and shares in the FTSE. When England’s economy normalizes, which it will, I’m going to make a nice little hunk of money. Thanks England! You guys rock!
Again, my congrats to all of you living in the UK. You guys who voted in favor of Brexit have more balls than other Europeans and even we Americans. Holy crap, I can’t tell you how proud I am. See you all in October!
