Congratulations, Britain! You've thrown off the yolk of the EUreaucrats! Now go out and celebrate!
...But before you go, we have a few things to discuss. Like the Brexit-geddon tearing its way through the markets. Or the EUpocalypse of disintegrating unions and crisis meetings. Or Soros and the hedge fund disaster vultures. Yes, I'm sorry to be that guy and ruin the festive mood, but as I noted yesterday, this is not the end of the road by any means. It's just the start.
