What's the time difference?  I hear first results will be coming in around midnight, London time.

Time as of posting this message is 18:37.

I've heard final results should be "around" breakfast time.

I voted without having to provide any i.d. Seems prone to voter fraud. Just "name, address?" *crosses out my name on a big list* "there you go."

That's usual.  The checks are done when you register.

Oh, and apparently half of London (and probably the rest of the country) is flooded so it's chaos.

Cain made a smart move voting earlier.

Not surprised.  It rained pretty hard last night.

Gibraltar has voted to Remain.  No real surprise there.

Newcastle remains - but just barely.  Bit of a concern that, Newcastle was projected to be a solid victory.  Pound has started to lose value on that news coming out.

The money to be made shorting the pound hadn't occurred to me... oh shit!

Leave has been ahead all night so far.  Current tally via the BBC is 8.1 million for leave and 7.6 for remain.  16.8 million is apparently the winning number, based on estimated number of votes.

Leave currently has a million more voters than remain.

Farage, by contrast, has been acting like a complete twat all night.

Moreso than usual, I mean.  Completely insufferable

Yeah, and I loved the bit when he declared that this revolution had been achieved without a shot being fired. My chin hit the floor. Can we say tasteless?
Also - the closeness of the result seems as if it is within the bounds of the postal votes - most of which were registered before Jo Cox was assassinated.

Tasteless in the extreme.

Scotland has voted 62% to remain, as well.  So this is going to get messy.
