George Osbourne (Chancellor of the Exchequer - Finance Minister in NuZild Speak) gave a speech before the markets opened in London this morning in which he said - and I quote
"On Thursday, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.
That is not the outcome that I wanted or that I threw everything into campaigning for.
But Parliament agreed that there are issues of such constitutional significance that they cannot solely be left to politicians, and must be determined by the people in a referendum.
Now the people have spoken and we, in this democracy, must all accept that result and deliver on their instructions."
