Britain, what have you done?

On my way home last night, I called my boyfriend to ask him what the exit polls were. I wasn’t worried, just curious about how many people would have voted to leave while obviously a majority of people was going to vote “remain”.

I woke up this morning and the first thing I did was turn off Airplane mode on my phone not to check the news, it wasn’t even on my mind, but to look at social media, messages from my boyfriend, bref: normal morning routine. Instead, as soon as wifi hit my phone, it started buzzing with flash notifications from news apps, screenshots from my boyfriend, Facebook statuses of despair…

Seeing the results on a map, the division between London and the rest of Britain, the division between Britain and Ireland and Scotland, and seeing a girl on the EU referendum snapchat story get it wrong and shout “I voted to leave the UK” I come to the realisation I must have been really silly to think this unknown and unpromising future was inconceivable…
