Welcome to Black Friday .......

Despite our EU divorce Jim's Loire 
will continue to spend plenty of time in the Loire

A deeply depressing result – the UK seeks divorce from European Union after 43 years.

Predictable results:

Cameron resigns as Prime Minister 

Sterling falls against most currencies – at one point was over 10% down on dollar – but has recovered during the morning as has the Euro. Stock market also falling before recovering a little. 

 £ against the US dollar

 £ against the €

Likely results:
Scotland will push for another independence referendum after Scotland voted 62% to 38% in favour of remaining in the EU. Chances must be high that the Scots will opt for independence so that they can stay in the EU.
