So it's actually happening. We've voted to quit the EU, thus severing our ties to powerful European economies, potentially ending free movement within the continent and trashing the value of the pound in the process. Oh, and did we mention that we've lost our Prime Minister too? Today has been a weird day.
To younger voters, today wasn't just weird, it was incredibly disappointing. 75% of 18 to 24-year-olds voted to stay in, and the young aren't happy about the result.
Here are five young voters who aren't impressed.
1. Some are angry
its sad how the elder generation are making the youth suffer, we dont want this and are stuck with the consequences #notmyvote

2. Others feel ignored
I feel like my generation, and all social groups I belong to have been completely ignored today... One of the 48.1% "minority". #NotMyVote

3. This person spared a thought for the youth who couldn't vote.
For 48.1% of the country, today was #notmyvote. Not to mention all those under 18 who couldn't have their say about their own future.

4. Some pity those who it will affect the most.
Our young people voted to stay in the EU. They are the future. We have let them down. #Brexit
