Editor’s note: Unlike Hillary Clinton in the US, PM Renzi takes responsibility for the outcome and his defeat. Let this be a lesson to you, HRC.
The ‘No’ vote was supported by populist parties, and the referendum was regarded as a barometer of anti-establishment sentiment in Europe.
2016 brings Britain, US, and Italy. Watch 2017 for France, Germany & Netherlands to take a stand against the globalist movement.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has resigned after suffering a heavy defeat in a referendum over his plan to reform the constitution.
In a late-night news conference, he said he took responsibility for the outcome, and said the No camp must now make clear proposals.
With most ballots counted, the No vote leads with 60% against 40% for Yes.
The turnout was nearly 70%, in a vote that was seen as a chance to register discontent with the prime minister.
