The Brexit referendum applies to Britain exiting the EU (Brexit is short for “British Exit”).  Much of Wales voted in favor of leaving.  The Scotland majority have voted to remain and there were fears that Scotland may leave the United Kingdom as a result.

With news of Great Britain leaving the Euro markets were already volatile during the Friday morning hours.

World markets were already cratering even as 10% of the votes remained to be counted and pointed to a tight win for voters wanting the United Kingdom to leave the 28-nation EU.
