The United Kingdom held a nationwide referendum on whether to remain in the European Union or to pull what is now being called a “Brexit”. The Brexit is official, with 52 percent of the United Kingdom voting to leave the European Union.
On June 24, 2016, the people of Britain woke up to a brand new, unsteady world. In a stunning upset, the UK voted to leave the European Union, making it the first country in history to exit the EU.
Here are some of the best reactions, posted on Twitter and brought to you by sarcastic people to explain what happens when Britain leaves the EU:

If you're ever having a bad day at work remember you're not David Cameron and you didn't unintentionally lead the UK out of the EU.

Britons madly Googling ‘What is the EU?’ after voting to leave it!
Other common questions on Google search in recent hours include: “How many countries are in the EU?” “Which countries are in the EU” and “What does it mean to leave the EU?”
Some are saying a sharp uptick in searches posing basic questions about the European Union and Brexit suggests that many Britons weren’t clear on the details of what they were voting on.

The difficult extraction process from the European Union is expected to begin in October once a new Prime Minister has been elected.
