Early on the morning of the 24th of June, BBC, Sky News, and ITV showed that Brexit was leading the way with 51.7 per cent of votes, with a few results left to declare. Leave was voted by a majority in numerous cities of England and Wales.
The leader of the UKIP Nigel Farage greeted the results with enthusiasm. On the other hand, the deputy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel said this is a “dramatic day” for Europe.
Damn! Ein schlechter Tag für Europa. #EUref
