#Notinmyname: the internet responds to close Brexit result


The results are in and 51.9% of those who voted in the referendum have chosen to leave the European Union, leaving 48.1% of voters without the result they wanted.

With such a close verdict, those who voted Remain have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration and share their sadness using the hashtag #notinmyname.

The majority of the tweets focused on the proportion of voters who hadn't received the result they had voted for.

The younger generation laid the blame at the door of the baby boomers.

People under 16, who were ineligible to vote in the referendum, decried that they were not given a say in their future.
