Current vote has Leave winning by more than 1 Million votes. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has already reacted with a predicted 650 point opening loss from futures trading occurring right at the opening. The biggest change during the day (not close) is 1089 points. Clearly this will be a disaster for the British Economy and the rest of the world as the trade treaties with the 27 remaining EU members will all have to be renegotiated!

The public weren't capable of making an informed decision, they should never have been trusted with the vote, especially given the lies they were being fed from both campaigns.

It's the Jeremy Kyle characters in our society that got the leave campaign a large proportion of the votes they needed to get over the line. Just seen some of these idiots being interviewed on BBC news from Dudley high street. They have no interest in politics any other time, yet you mention immigrants taking their jobs from them and there is uproar (we've all seen that sky news interview) and something that sounds appealing to them like "take back control", something that has had little to no effect on their lives but causes the same "We won't be told what to do" response. They weren't hard to convince for the leave campaigners, and there was no point arguing with these people, their minds were made up. They only hear what they want to hear.

And once again my generation's futures have been screwed over by those before us who think they know what's best for us. It's a much smaller world we live in today, the difference being the youth like diversity and being part of a wider community, especially in the global capital that is London. And the older people still haven't got over their fear of immigrants and want to clog up the nhs by themselves. If this vote were another 40 years down the line, there would be a clear winner.

Factoring in all the racists, xenophobes, selfish old people and complete idiots, I reckon about half of the leave voters weighed everything up and made the decision they thought was best for the country to take. They say good always wins, we lost this time it seems. And Farage had the cheek to say decent people won. B*llocks.

The vote should have been amongst the mps we pay to do the research, consider all the facts and weigh up the pros and cons of staying or going before making an informed decision.

By the way, what are the chances of London going it alone?

Given that scotland is likley to have another referendum in 2017 with a possible reunification of Ireland on the cards , London becoming a city state is probable if there is enough momentum behind it. London would vote overwhelmingly to join the EU , if given the chance to do so.

So you'll be needing a passport to get to Slough , that's fine by me.

It's hard to tell whether you're being serious but with respect, Mr Cladding, it is not probable at all. As a Remain supporter, I greatly sympathise with the sentiment - and it is certainly an interesting idea - but you know as well as I do that it is a complete non starter.

London will, alas, have to live with the decision that the remainder of the country made and do the best that it can to repair the damage. The city has faced many greater challenges before and survived and flourished. It will do so again. Eventually.

You have to be very stupid to even believe in the posibility of London being a separate city state.

Bidding set to start on £2bn East London cultural quarter



The London Legacy Development Corporation is preparing to fire the starting gun in the next few months on several big bid races for the proposed cultural and education district development at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The huge scheme will be broken up into five major design and build contracts covering a new V&A for east London, a 600-seat theatre for Sadler’s Wells and London College of Fashion complex on one site and a major new campus for University College London on another.

Under present plans building work is due to start on both the UCL East and Stratford Waterfront sites in 2018 with building openings planned in 2020/21.

Construction costs on the Waterfront site containing the new V&A, Sadlers Wells and London College of Fashion are estimated at £850m alone, while UCL plans to spend £1.25bn on its East campus and refurbishing parts of its central London Bloomsbury campus.

The design of Stratford Waterfront is the work of a team of renowned architects, designers and master planners led by Allies and Morrison, including RIBA Royal Gold Medal winners O’Donnell and Tuomey, and Arquitecturia.

1.London College of Fashion (University of the Arts London)

A 15-storey building with podium over 350,000 sq ft containing five lecture rooms, gallery, workshops and studio space. It is presently envisaged that the shell and core will be procured by the LLDC with fit-out being procured separately by UAL.

2.The Victoria and Albert Museum (East)

A 7-storey building set over 200,000 sq ft with ceiling heights of up to 6m in the galleries. The shell and core and circulation and back of house fit-out area will be procured by the LLDC with the gallery fit-out being procured separately by the V&A.

Lendlease to start £275m Hammersmith scheme



Lendlease is set to start construction next month on a £275m office complex at 245 Hammersmith Road in west London.

Legal & General Property has sold a 50% stake to Mitsubishi Estate London to form a new partnership to develop the 250,000 sq ft scheme.

The speculative scheme has been designed by Sheppherd Robson and already has planning consent from Hammersmith & Fulham Council.

The new building will consist of a basement, ground and 11 upper storeys and an extensive public realm, including a new urban park and plaza to the Hammersmith Road.

Simon Wilkes, Head of Business Space Development, Legal & General Property, said: “245 Hammersmith Road will be much more than just an office building; we are creating a destination with modern working and lifestyle trends at the core of our thinking.

“It will set a new standard for Hammersmith. There is still a lack of Grade A development taking place which means we are set to benefit from rental growth.

“We are already seeing high levels of interest from blue chip occupiers, who are particularly drawn to the design and location of the scheme, especially given the competitive nature of the rents compared to the West End.”

Crossrail project makes major station upgrades across west London



Network Rail carried out upgrades to the existing tracks and stations in west London during the Spring Bank Holiday as part of the Crossrail programme .

Three quarters of the new railway's route, which will be known as the Elizabeth Line from December 2018, runs above ground through outer London, Berkshire and Essex.

Network Rial have been working to upgrade the infrastructure so it can cope, including platform extensions and upgrades at Hayes & Harlington, Southall and West Ealing.

As well as these changes, construction on the flyover at Stockley junction continued, which will form the basis of a new ramp.

Network Rail hope that the flyover will allow trains to run more reliably at the busy junction to Heathrow airport and once operational, the Elizabeth line will allow passengers to travel from Reading and Heathrow in the west right through the capital without changing trains.

Matthew Steele, Crossrail Programme Director at Network Rail, said: "Once opened, the Elizabeth line will greatly improve the capacity of the transport network in London and beyond with new trains offering more frequent and more reliable services from Berkshire, Essex and the south east of London.

Democracy is such a terrible thing! Sometimes, can you imagine, people who have different views from mine are ALLOWED to vote!

Thank God we live on a democracy where the right to vote is sacrosanct. Many, many thousands died for this right. Millions across the World throughout history.

Even if I disagree with others views I respect their right to hold them. Otherwise we are lost.
