Brits who voted to leave EU now Regret-xit

  • 25/06/2016

It's been less than a day since the United Kingdom voted to depart the European Union -- and it's a decision that some Brits who voted Leave are already starting to regret.

The referendum result has already had a huge effect on the economy, with the Pound experiencing its biggest ever one-day drop, falling to US$1.37, its lowest value since 1986.

And it appears some Leave voters are only just coming to terms with the fact their vote contributed to their nation's departure from the EU, taking to social media to express their disappointment.

Some Remain voters were less than forgiving, though.

One man has drawn fierce criticism and ridicule for his comments on the BBC programme Victoria Live, when he told of how he had voted to Leave simply because he didn't think it would happen.

"I didn't think my vote was going to matter too much because I thought we were just going to remain," he explained.

"I think the period of uncertainty that we're going to have for the next couple of months -- that's just been magnified now. So yeah, I'm quite worried."
