David Dimbleby: So there you have it Ladies and Gentlemen, the United Kingdom shall remain within the European Union. The people of Britain have been asked whether they support continued membership and they have given the margin of victory to the European project. Opinions?

William Hague: Well clearly the government shall learn from this that we have to be nuanced in our approach to the EU. We can't just withdraw, we need to negotiate with our European partners to get a better deal for Britain from Europe - millions of Britons have shown that they've had enough with the EU and we should get Brussels to understand this and repair the bad that has been done!

Nick Clegg: *with a broad smile* It would seem that the right result has triumphed, I'm sorry William but the 21st Century has declared the European project to be the future! *is clicking on his computer screen, refreshing the Guardian's website and reads from Francis Tornybee's blog: "Despite the no's campaigns bare presence, they were more than compensated for the basic, at times childish campaign of the yes camp. The Prime minister for once stayed out of the mud but the UKIP did itself a huge disservice with a bizarre collage of soviet nazi paranoia; they could have done little more damage if they campaign in tin foil hats! What the no campaign really benefited from though is the recent performance of the EU and European leaders. Its a far cry from the recent days of crisis as europe has shown itself to be capable of handling debt and security issues. Indeed, many Britons admire the leadership of Notat and Volker and wouldn't mind seeing similar at home. Perhaps the real reason the government wishes to leave is to isolate itself from leaders of reason. . ."

*The screen cuts to Nigel Farage who is crying, he asks to be left alone and says that UKIP need to take some serious reflection following this "devastating" result for democracy. Ken Clarke is smiling like a Cheshire Cat whilst the Yes campaign activists in Central London look disgusted. The show closes on celebrating Britons in Trafalgar Square waving the EU flag, Ode to Joy can be heard in the distance. Enthusiasm for the EU is at an all time high!*
