The Evening Standard - 'I really regret my vote now': The Brexit voters who wish they'd backed remain.

Some of the voters who backed Britain leaving the EU have revealed their regret over the choice after Leave triumphed in the referendum.

THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED ON 24th JUNE 2016 (JUST AFTER THE VOTE).

More than 17.4 million people across the UK voted Leave in the EU referendum, while 16.1 million voted to remain in the EU.

But many voters have since spoken out saying they are shocked at the poll's outcome and did not believe their Leave votes would actually count.

One voter, named only as Adam from Manchester, told the BBC: “I didn’t think that was going to happen.
“My vote – I didn’t think was going to matter too much because I thought we were just going to remain.
“The David Cameron resignation has blown me away to be honest. I think the period of uncertainty we’re going to have for the next few months has been magnified, so I’m quite worried.”
Another voter, Mandy, said: “I was very disappointed about the result, even though I voted to leave, this morning I woke up and the reality did actually hit me.

“But if I had the opportunity to vote again, it would be to stay.”

Other voters have also posted on Twitter that they regretted their decision to vote in favour of leaving the EU.

One said: “I personally voted leave believing these lies and I regret it more than anything, I feel genuinely robbed of my vote.”

Another posted: “Urm I think I kinda regret my vote, I had no real reason to pick what I did!!”

And one voter simply added: “I really regret my vote now.”

London was among the only regions in the UK to vote heavily in favour of remaining in the EU, with just five of the 33 boroughs voting for Brexit.

Londoners are now calling on the city to become independent so that it can stay in the European Union.
