The options were never leave the EU or "stay as is".
The post referendum outcome would have been
leave, Europe gets all pissy but maybe has to reflect on it's practices and PR (PR mainly).
Stay and have to whole political moves towards the United States of Europe controlled by a small elite accelerated because "we the people decided", that's what we said we wanted right?
Cameron would never have been allowed to have the vote if the elite didn't think we were sufficiently inured to the situation that we would never stand against it.
From this point on be positive, contribute you positivity to the situation, build the future from integrity and honesty.
