Osborne reappeared early this morning with a statement intended to calm the markets (no emergency budget required just yet), and I think I saw earlier that the run-it-again petition is a fraud after all. Some comment online about how the 'liberal' side didn't seem prepared to accept the 'democratic' result when it went against them. Polls suggested that educated people had voted to remain. A young woman stood up on Question Time and asked how many times we'd be prepared to re-run the referendum to get the right answer.
We have the undivided attention of the EU leadership, and John Kerry has diverted a trip to Rome to come here - that queue of Obama's was a short one. The sun came up this morning. 'Change' was until recently one of those political words - we're always being promised change, in ways that always make it sound positive. Now the electorate has delivered change, and along with it, some hard choices.
