    Britain did not decide to withdraw from European Union; the subjects of the aristocracy and the royalty (kings and queens) have been tricked to vote to leave the EU. That number is like 51+% of the general subject population.

    As if England is a democracy, the vote by that 51+% of subjects is considered a democratic decision. The prime minister of England is not representative of the subjects of the queen; he is the delegate of the queen.

    Subjects of the queen cannot make a national decision, because they are not a nation.

    LONDON — Britain has voted to leave the European Union, a historic decision sure to reshape the nation’s place in the world, rattle the Continent and rock political establishments throughout the West.

    Not long after the vote tally was completed, Prime Minister David Cameron, who led the campaign to remain in the bloc, appeared in front of 10 Downing Street on Friday morning to announce that he planned to step down by October, saying the country
    deserved a leader committed to carrying out the will of the people.

    The stunning turn of events was accompanied by a plunge in the financial markets, with the value of the British pound and stock prices plummeting.

    The margin of victory startled even proponents of a British exit. The “Leave” campaign won by 52 percent to 48 percent. More than 17.4 million people voted in the referendum on Thursday to sever ties with the European Union, and about 16.1 million to
    remain in the bloc.

    “I will do everything I can as prime minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months,” Mr. Cameron said. “But I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.”

    Despite opinion polls before the referendum that showed either side in a position to win, the outcome stunned much of Britain, Europe and the trans-Atlantic alliance, highlighting the power of anti-elite, populist and nationalist sentiment at a time of
    economic and cultural dislocation.

    “Dare to dream that the dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom,” Nigel Farage, the leader of the U.K. Independence Party, one of the primary forces behind the push for a referendum on leaving the European Union, told cheering supporters
    just after 4 a.m.

    Withdrawing from the European Union is a lengthy process that Mr. Cameron will largely leave to his successor. It will mean pulling out from the world’s largest trading zone, with 508 million residents, including the 65 million people of Britain, and a
    commitment to the free movement of labor, capital, goods and services. It has profound implications for Britain’s legal system, which incorporates a large body of regulations that cover everything from product safety to digital privacy, and for Britain
    s economy.

    One reason the City, London’s financial district, shuddered on Friday is that it is a hub for trading in euro-denominated securities, activity that may now shift to rivals like Frankfurt and Paris.
