Remains of the day: Britain’s messy EU referendum has left two fractured political parties and a deeply fissured country: To anyone who visited London in the days running up to the Brexit referendum vote on Thursday, the idea that the country would vote to leave would have been a non-starter.

"Where will Britain go from here? Ardent Brexiteer and bookies’ favourite to be Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has attempted to portray this as a “glorious opportunity” for a forward-looking country seeking to forge stronger links with nations well beyond Europe’s borders. But after the vicious campaign of the past few months, the victors will struggle to shed the view that many across the world have built of them — that of a nation that had so much but chose to abandon it in favour of a xenophobic, small-island mentality."
The message is loud and clear. This referendum will not address the basic issues it was intended to resolve. May be, this may lead to a churning of relationships among nations and considerations beyond trade and currency may surface in future negotiations.
