Was out early to vote in the referendum.

It feels like the common sense that I always thought the majority of British people had, is being drowned out with the politics of hatred. Nasty, nasty campaign, many showing in their true colours.

Never been this wound up by a vote  ever. General elections come and go, we can fix the mistakes made.  but this time we cannot.  Are we really going to do this?  I think I'll be opening a bottle tonight, either way to drown sorrows or celebrate sanity prevailing.

I'd say same here, but I've no intention of sitting up through it all. I'm going to bed and finding out what's happened in the morning.

Feeling very tense, like you. The campaign has been so horrible. I just wish it really was all over tomorrow, but, whatever the result, I suspect it's only just beginning.

That's what I usually do with elections, but I feel I ought to try to stay up until 12am at least.

It's been an onslaught that I'll be glad to see the back of, with this and all the other election crap over in the US.

And if Leave vote wins I dread what will happen. I mean Gove, Johnson & Farage? God help us all.

Well the bottle didn't work. I should imagine I'll be opening another. The lunatics have taken over the asylum

And now Cameron's gone. I loathed the bloke, but at least if he'd stayed there'd be a semblance of stability.

Cameron is gone, leaving only far right dregs, there is no effective opposition and I still don't know who the LibDem leader is. How did we get here?

I don't know, I think for most people it is fear rather than hatred. Not that this makes it any less scary.

I'm really sorry about how the vote turned out.

Fear perhaps but I hear so much resentment to anyone who appears foreign/ethnic so I am less forgiving. And they were so willing to accept the myths & lies fed to them consistently by biased tabloid press & the asshats who would say anything to get their own way.

It's a huge blow to this country and the beginning of it's fragmentation
