The Brexit is happening, people.
Residents of the United Kingdom voted tonight to leave the European Union and all the consequences that come with it.
There’s a great deal of concern about the global economic implications of the UK’s withdrawal, with the pound and Dow dropping over the course of the night.
The victory for Leave is a surprising one, and Prime Minister David Cameron was on the Remain side, so he’s probably more than a little alarmed by the results:
Thank you everyone who voted to keep Britain stronger, safer & better off in Europe – and thousands of @StrongerIn campaigners around the UK
