How to react to the EU referendum- with gifs

Posted on

So. This happened. Britain has left the EU. As a 15 year old, I am neutral in all this but the reaction has understandably been… interesting. David Cameron’s resigned, Scotland want independence again (and both Northern Ireland and London, yes, London, has threatened independence as well), there’s a petition for a second referendum, there’s a petition to give 14-17 year olds (aka, the people this vote will affect the most) a chance to vote, which I have signed, the pound has plummeted, Boris Johnson or Micheal Gove (GOVE!!!) could be our new Prime Minister, everyone outside of Britain is completly baffled by the whole business, everyone inside of Britain either loves or hates it and the whole thing, to be very British about it, is complete shambles.

But, let’s try and keep a level head here. Let’s dig into the the different reactions-

  • You’re happy

If you voted to Leave, then you’re fine. You got what you wanted and everything’s cool. Again, I couldn’t vote so I won’t say if I supported Leave or Remain.

  • You’re panicking

It’s the end of the world. Everything’s turning upside down and you need to find something constructive out of this. If it helps, this result will make UKIP redundant, as their sole aim was to leave the EU. Now that’s happened, there’s no need for them.

  • You want to wait and see what happens before panicking

and here we go

You’re neither happy or sad, just cautious. This could be good or bad, but you don’t want to pass judgement just yet. You’re just interested to see what happens and whether you should be concerned.

  • You don’t care

You either didn’t mind either way, or don’t live in this country and are finding all of this hilarious. I’ve learned how many people didn’t care what happened and voted Leave because they weren’t sure, and now they’re regretting it. Which leads me onto-

  • You regret your choice or you know someone who has

what have i done

This has actually been the reaction of many people. As I’ve mentioned, some people voted Leave because they didn’t think it would happen and their vote wouldn’t amount too much. Which kind of misses the point of voting.

  • You’ve already booked your one way ticket to another country

bye

You’ve had enough of Cameron/Corbyn/Osborne/Johnson/Gove/Farage/insert any MP you don’t like here and have decided to move out of the country to somewhere nice. There are jokes by Americans that they will move to Canada in the case of President Trump, but there’s no harm in us going there as well.

And those were the various reactions I’ve seen regarding Brexit. Regardless of where you stand on the matter, it’s important to be British about it and to keep calm and carry on, no matter what happens.

    You forgot one Ben: Angry. A lot of people, myself included, are very angry.
