Few threads started by those happy about this. I have decided to no further rain on their parade - they are entitled to their opinions . BUT anyone who feels otherwise ...welcome

Don't want to get out of bed.

ohdogoaway Fri 24-Jun-16 06:57:29

Me neither.

PenelopePitstops Fri 24-Jun-16 06:58:19

Nor me. Feel that racism has won.

minipie Fri 24-Jun-16 06:59:11

Really depressed by this. And shocked.

PeaceOfWildThings Fri 24-Jun-16 06:59:22

Turning the radio off. They (Gove, Boris, Farage) weren't expecting to win...they haven't planned for it, have they? What a mess.

ohdogoaway Fri 24-Jun-16 06:59:33

I know a lot of people who despise UKIP must have voted Leave- but how can they reconcile the two ? I am honestly flabbergasted

Actually cried. As a 2nd generation immigrant, feel desperately unwelcome. Fear for my daughter's future.

feathermucker Fri 24-Jun-16 07:00:42

Sad day for Britain. The Leave campaign pitched their propaganda in just the 'right' way so as to spread fear and hatred!

All those waving flags now are in blissful ignorance!

I could cry!shock

i woke at 5am saw the result. been awake ever since. evil evil bastards. its so scary.

braceybracegirl Fri 24-Jun-16 07:04:29

im actually crying watching the news

ohdogoaway Fri 24-Jun-16 07:04:43

Agree choc - may I assume you aren't don't come from a "good" immigrant stock like Nigel Farage (ie white)

ElleBellyBeeblebrox Fri 24-Jun-16 07:05:31

Gutted, heartbroken. Felt sick when I saw Farage this morning on TV, crowing about a victory for ordinary decent people. He does not speak for me, as an ordinary person.

braceybracegirl Fri 24-Jun-16 07:05:46

i also blame the Mail and the Sun.

braceybracegirl Fri 24-Jun-16 07:06:58

i think i might move to Scotland.

Arfarfanarf Fri 24-Jun-16 07:07:58

I am gutted.

I truly feel bigotry is at the heart of this result and it makes me feel very sad.

This country is going to suffer horribly economically for the next few years and i for one dont want to hear a word of complaint from anyone who voted leave.

Meanwhile, we make plans to leave the country in the next few years.

It's bad enough living in 1930's germany. We arent hanging around...

ohdogoaway Fri 24-Jun-16 07:08:20

Well look at the voting breakdown and see who counts as a good decent person in this country now. It's really hard not to say - well fuck all of you when you need nursing care and home care and all the other jobs done by immigrants.

YouMakeMyDreams Fri 24-Jun-16 07:11:04

I actually feel sick. I'm in Scotland so up here the remain vote was greater but the people I know that did vote leave were badingvit on stupid bloody things like this email benefit bashing programme . Nearly came to blows with xmil yesterday who said she was thinking leave because of seeing some immigrant on a benefit programme and all they were getting to build a house in their home land in a few years. The woman's parents are fucking German and she had been on benefits for as long as I can remember before she got her pension. And the closest neighbours who are any dupport to her are Polish. angry I may have pointed all this out to her quite forcefully.
I do believe racism/xenophobia has won. I'm thinking of colonising the moon now. sad

Titsalinabumsquash Fri 24-Jun-16 07:12:06

I am already incredibly low, now I'm low and scared for the what's to come and utterly baffled by what has been done by many people that don't seem to understand the impact.

I've heard people voted leave because,

They hate Cameron,
They don't want foreigners getting benefits,
They want their benefits back that the tories stole,

Shit like that makes me scared for the country why are people like that getting a choice?!

ohdogoaway Fri 24-Jun-16 07:12:13

I think Many people who voted Leave had legitimate concerns about stuff like immigration just as many remainers did- but on balance , who do you want to stand with in life - Farage and his ilk? Gove universally despised by teachers , Johnson a political opportunist. But worst of all is Farage. This is a UKIP victory . Please someone reassure me that 52% of this country are not racist biggots. That they voted genuinely for more reasoned concerns and not so all the brown people and other foreigners should fuck off

YouMakeMyDreams Fri 24-Jun-16 07:12:54

Oh and I was a no voter in inyref. If we manage to get another one I'll be a loud and proud yes voter. Yet again Scotland get something they didn't vote for.

Titsalinabumsquash Fri 24-Jun-16 07:14:10

We're going to be considering our options in regards to leaving. I don't want to be here anymore.

thumb3lina Fri 24-Jun-16 07:14:32

I'm British but moved from the UK last year.

Our house in the UK was just about to complete but we are now expecting them to pull out. Already with the pound dropping we are worse off but now we could end up stuck with all our money tied up in the UK, worth a lot less.

We are 99% sure DH has lost his job. He needs free movement. Most of our money is tied up.

I have an Irish passport so we are now looking to move there for 3 years to get DH/DD an Irish passport. I feel this will help DD more than a British passport will now.

A lot of my family/friends are now looking to move.

sad

ohdogoaway Fri 24-Jun-16 07:15:30

I can't help hope that there is another Scottish ref and you all vote yes to independence - the sheer hypocrisy of it - only a year or so ago we were begging Scotland to stay because we were stronger together . Fuck that . Can I move to Scotland?

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHorrid Fri 24-Jun-16 07:16:43

I just looked at my daughters face and felt so sorry for her.

I think there will be a huge brain drain from the uk over the next few years. sad
