BBC says leave has won

The BBC has also called it for leave.

They are forecasting a four-point leave victory, 52% to 48%.

In Wales 21 of 22 results have been declared – 17 for leave, four for remain. Running totals in Wales are 52.9% for leave and 47.1% for remain. Only Gwynedd to go. Wales was very much out.

Liam Fox, the former defence secretary and leave campaigner, says David Cameron has a duty to stay on as prime minister to see Britain through the “turbulence” that a vote to leave the EU will bring.

Speaking to Sky News he also suggested Ukip should now disband. On the the prime minister’s future Fox said:

I think he should stay because there is clearly going to be some short-term turbulence, we have seen that in the markets tonight, although one might ask why they weren’t better prepared for the possibility of a Brexit vote. As the prime minister that gave us the referendum he is best placed to see us through. As prime minister of the coalition he showed that he had the skills to be able keep very disparate groups together.

That’s a prime minister who understands the sense of duty of taking the thing through to its conclusion. It would be quite wrong, and against his character, just to say, ‘I lost the referendum therefore I’m going.’ There’s a duty to take that process through to a logical conclusion. I hope that’s what we do.

Nigel Farage makes victory speech

This is what Nigel Farage said to his supporters. Just as he appeared to concede defeat prematurely at the start of the evening, he is now effectively declaring victory.

If the predications now are right this will be a victory for real people, a victory for ordinary people, a victory for decent people. We have fought against the multinationals, against the big merchant banks, against big politics, against lies against lies, corruption and deceit and today honesty and decency and belief in nation I think now is going to win.

We will have done it without having to fight, without a single bullet having been fired. I hope this victory brings down this failed projects and brings us to a Europe of sovereign nation states trading together.  Let’s June the 23rd go down in our history as our independence day.
