After this vote the UK is diminished, our politics poisoned | Gary Younge | Opinion | The Guardian
In the end those who placed their faith in the “experts” were always going to be disappointed. The pollsters were wrong; the currency traders were wrong; the pundits were confounded. People who did not feel they had been heard have not just spoken. Given a one-off chance to tell the world what they think of how they are governed they have screamed a piercing cry of alienation and desperation.
Given the choice between the status quo and change (changing something, anything) Britain voted for change. It got its wish. This will change everything.
