They should ask Trump whose the best pick.

Trump knows people.  The best people.

Shit! It's crumbling fast. Cameron gone (well actually that's good), the Scots invoking the right to vote again for independence, The Northern Irish looking to the south again as a way back in. All the neo-facist's on the continent wanting their vote, so Europe fractures, nationalism takes over, every man for himself.
Trumps in Scotland mouthing off, not realising that Scotland wanted to remain (Hope they chop the fucker up and throw him in a bog) and I couldn't get a veggie somosa from the cob (type of sandwich) Van for the first time ever, Fuck!
Just to be clear, you are all terrific, but everything you say is exactly what a moron would say.

Also, Corbyn might be facing a motion of no confidence.

Labour MPs are idiots. They've clearly lost touch with their working class supporters, judging by the last election and this referendum. And now they're trying to get rid of a leader who seems to have reached these alienated supporters and won a landslide victory in the leadership contest.

Don't you just love this shit!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-36624697

America take note! Dumb people have voted and changed the whole game, I have had 3 people that voted us out of the EU come up to me today (after doing it for vaguely racist, puffed up, it will make the UK great again load of bollocks reasoning, ring any bells?) and say I didn't think this would happen, I suppose we will get a good deal with the EU now! I didn't hit them, but I did point out that the EU cannot afford to let us succeed on the grounds if those in, see us prosper.....? Two of them said (I kid you not) I hadn't thought of that, at that point I told one he was a fuckwit (the other was my boss).
If you are thinking of registering a protest vote cos' you are annoyed at politicians and you really don't know what the fuck you are on about, please watch what happens in the coming months and think, will this knob make things better.

I dunno why people take what Farage says seriously anyway. He's in no position to make any promises. He's not in the government, he's not even an MP.

What didn't they think would happen?  That the UK pound would fall?

Everyone expected the pound to fall, it's just blatant fearmongering to not expect it to recover. It's already back to where it was at March of this year.

The market is overreacting and the pound remains fundamentally unchanged. Europe, Asia, and America have to trade with the UK, and to trade with the UK you have to use the Pound. The Pound will rebound when the market stops freaking out like a bunch of schoolchildren. If anything, the Pound will now slowly gain value over time. It has never in the history of the UK been worth more than it was when the UK joined the EU in the first place. The EU has been devaluing the Pound, not Brexit.

Stop letting the EU's fear tactics riddle your head with economic lies.

Eh, it goes both ways. Many "common" Labour supporters are very upset about how little Corbyn did to support the Remain campaign (I mean, Cameron really shouldn't have been the face of Remain - Labour was the obvious choice). If he survives a leadership contest, fair enough, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if he got ousted.

I don't think he could though, it's pretty obvious that he's not a big fan of the EU and saw the vote to Remain as the best of two bad options. He seems a pretty honest guy, so I don't think he could have effectively led the Remain campaign without fully supporting it. The Blairites will take any opportunity to try to get rid of him anyway.

That's my suspicion, too. But that makes him pretty much the opposite of what the Labour electorate wants. Ergo, a leadership challenge. Regardless of whether or not he's a good politician, he's not a Labour politician - he's some sort of socialist-protectionist who should probably join TUSC.

The problem is the Labour electorate is split. I know plenty of Labour supporters who voted to Leave - I live in the North East which voted 58% leave, and which is generally a Labour stronghold. But you also have London, also a Labour stronghold which voted heavily to remain. Corbyn couldn't satisfy both sides, so maybe keeping a relatively low profile was the way to go.

Perhaps. I should point out that I'm not a fan of Labour (at least not Corbyn's Labour), so I may well be missing on some nuance. Nonetheless, it seems understandable to me that some people would be super-pissed and would want to oust Corbyn. Perhaps a new leader is exactly what's needed to reunite the party?

I'm hoping you Brits will regain some of the freedoms you lost over the years now that you departed from the EU.
