Brexit on social media

Alex Chams By Alex Chams Published on June 24, 2016

The Brits and the rest of the world woke up to the Brexit vote this morning which had the effect, as the Guardian said, of a cluster bomb. People had already been expressing themselves on social media before the vote, but once it passed, the floodgates opened and the unleashing was absolute. Between genuine anguish, shock, jubilation or horror, at least people did not loose their sense of humor. Below is a selection of posts spotted on Facebook and twitter:

The Spaniards wondered if their major department store called El Corte Inglés would change its name:

While the French wondered if the Chunnel would be bricked up again:

But many people were simply sad:

And asked themselves this question:
