I voted remain. I have just woken up to the Leave victory. My concern is that today the pound has dropped 13% in value. We have no other trade agreements outside of the EU, meaning we will likely still have to trade with the EU under EU regulations.

Britain is royally screwed.

I voted remain. I have just woken up to the Leave victory. My concern is that today the pound has dropped 13% in value.

We have no other trade agreements outside of the EU, meaning we will likely still have to trade with the EU under EU regulations.

We haven't lost dependence on the EU but we have lost our say in those events.

Cameron (who I'm not a fan of) has stepped down, meaning we could potentially end up with the second unelected prime minister in my lifetime.

I'm very worried right now and would appreciate some help to see the bright side of this,

preferably about some issue other than immigration because I feel that the issue has been so inflated into fearmongering that it's not likely to feel reassuring.

I've been researching the referendum for a while and my understanding of the subject is that a lot of people have chosen to vote leave because we were promised a) tighter immigration

and b) money set aside for our priorities, e.g. the NHS. Immigration I don't think is being dealt with well since it's been presented as racism vs overidealism.

The NHS funding promise was U-turned this morning within minutes of the results.

It feels a little like the public have been misled, fearmongered and undereducated on the issue against their best interests.
