Leave voter dislikes outcome of voting Leave. World's Level of Not Impressed Breaks New Record.

In an interview with Victoria Derbyshire as part of the BBC's referendum coverage, Adam from Manchester admitted that even though he voted to leave the EU, a result which came true in the early hours of Friday morning, he now regrets his decision.

Electoral buyers' remorse is not uncommon, and Adam, like many of us, said he was shocked by the referendum result.

What's riled a lot of people on Twitter is the fact that Adam is disappointed by the leave win, despite the fact that he voted for it.

I'm shocked that we actually have voted to leave. I didn't think that was going to happen. My vote, I didn't think was going to matter too much because I thought we were just going to remain.

Yeah. We know.

This isn't the end of the story.

We wish this was the end of the story.

A woman identified as Mandy spoke to ITV News today and expressed a similarly terrifying blend of surprise and regret.

I was really disappointed about the results. Even though I voted to Leave, this morning I woke up and the reality did actually hit me.

She continued.

But if I had the opportunity to vote again, it would be to stay.

No problem! We can do that for you.

Just, let's see, how frequently do these sorts of decisions come about? Shouldn't be too long... Oh. Hmmm. Turns out the average is 41 years minimum between referendums on EU membership. And, they were both about remaining. Not joining. Those have never happened.

Reminds us of this:

Twitter has released some top draw sass.

There is something to be said for protest votes being used to give a black eye to an unpopular government, safe in the knowledge that it won't make a difference. But this was a two horse race people! Every lost vote is a vote against!

indy100 is running out of sarcasm and can't do this anymore. Why, public? Why?
