    Is this for real?

    The whole world is reeling after a milestone referendum in Britain to leave the European Union. And although leaders of the campaign to exit Europe are crowing over their victory, it seems many Britons may not even know what they had actually vote...

    I wouldn't put it past some people

    Last night some young lad on Facebook was commentating the live results, via constant status updates like it was a football match

    His last status before deleting them all, was an afterthought which went like this "oh no, if we leave the EU that means England will be thrown out of Euro 2016?! Wish I never voted leave now"

    If it had still been just an economic community we would not have had a problem with it...
