A Leave voter has tearfully apologised for Brexit on LBC radio.
We've had the political implosion and the flash crash. Hate crimes and homophobic abuse have skyrocketed since the EU referendum, while the pound continues to plummet amid reports of an £800 drop in the average annual wage.
Theresa May (in a Michael Gove-style Lady Macbeth move) has done a full 180 and is now championing a 'Hard Brexit' that no majority explicitly voted for.
Imagine if remain had won by tiny margin & the govt went for "hard remain" - Schengen, Euro, multilingual signage. People would go apeshit. — Rhiannon L Cosslett (@Rhiannon L Cosslett)
Brexit campaigns howled for democracy and accountability, only to watch an unelected prime minister try and deny parliament a vote on triggering Article 50.
Boris Johnson continues to flip flop like a dying fish, and has come back from the dead so many times that he could well be auditioning for a zombie thriller.
And most seriously, #Marmitegate.
Talking to James O'Brien on LBC radio, truck driver Richard admitted that he seriously regrets his vote to Leave the European Union.
I've got a lump in my throat and I've got a tear in my eye. I'm just worried.
“It takes a lot to admit it,” Richard said. "I feel stupid."
@LBC @mrjamesob Congrats to Richard for having the backbone to admit he made a mistake in voting Leave. #brexit — Andrew #FBPE (@Andrew #FBPE)
He said he had fallen for soundbites like 'Take Back Control' during the referendum campaigns.

"I'm articulate, I'm well read, but to be sucked in by these lies!"
He wondered aloud how many listeners are feeling the same way as him, and says that he feels such remorse that he plans to apologise to his son.
My lad's 13. When he's older... I will apologise to him. I will say sorry to him.
