Vote leave logo

This was the official "Vote Leave" logo, with which the Main 5 (see below) campaigned for Brexit!

Brexit is a portmanteau of "Britain" and "exit"! This refers to exit from the EU.

When Brexit was triggered to happenEdit

A referendum was held in the UK on the 23rd of June 2016. The polling stations were open across the country from 7am to 10pm. The result was 51.9% to Leave and 48.1% to Remain!

When Brexit will happenEdit

David Cameron resigned as PM on the 13th July 2016, and then Theresa May became the new Prime Minister. We expect the new Tory Leader and PM will trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty (in effect, the EU Constitution). This will give us 2 years to negotiate trade deals and shit, then, by October 2018, it is assumed we will be GONE! Scary!!! (

Key campaigners for Brexit (In order of influence)Edit

  1. Nigel Farage (UKIP)
  2. Boris Johnson (Tory)
  3. Michael Gove (Tory)
  4. Zac Goldsmith (Tory)
  5. Frank Fields (Labour)

Leftie appreciation of Brexit?Edit

Well, there's apparently no going back now, so we may as well focus on the positives of leaving:


Well, now we have a slightly better democracy from breaking ties with the unelected officials in Brussels, and us lefties have been (historically) the ones who have most fought for democracy, amirite? The French Revolution was done against absolute monarchy by peasants who wanted a fairer society, and Divine Right of Kings was taken down by lefties.

We can run our own deficitsEdit

We have our own economy, so if we get screwed over economically, then we can borrow from other countries individually. Also, we WON'T have to run as part of a large EU deficit when an EU country gets fucked over economically, but we CAN charitably help them out a bit. (

The bad sideEdit

The chief economist at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, said a vote against remaining in the EU would be “bad for the UK, bad for Europe and bad for the global economy. (...) 40% of the UK’s trade goes to Europe. It will be faced with tariffs. Trade will be more costly. Divorce would take two years, and that’s a long time for there to be uncertainty.”[1]
Most experts think the UK will do worse outside the EU. Still Switzerland and Norway are managing outside the EU. So Britain may manage too, just about. I voted remain and I'm sorry about the mess.

Will we really leave?Edit

A few influential people are saying the referendum result shouldn't be binding. [2] Let's wait and see what happens.
