On Friday night at 11PM GMT, the UK left the European Union and finally completed Brexit. Remainers online aren’t too happy.
The UK officially left the European Union, after finally securing a withdrawal deal that was acceptable to the British public. Brexit had been voted for 3 and a half years ago, but many Remainers were still refusing to accept the result.
Just as we did following the UK election, here’s a selection of some of the best meltdowns and salty tweets from people mad that democracy turned out a result they didn’t like!
Remainer commentators, who have been constantly telling us that we were racist, bigoted and stupid for voting for Brexit, were a tad depressed and angry it was going through:
You may have noticed that I haven't tweeted anything about #BrexitDay (the UK formally withdraws from the UK at 11pm UK time, 6pm US/Eastern time).
There's a reason for that.
I am too depressed for words.
(And, also, I am saving up my 'told you so' for the idiotic Leavers.)

On reflection, I am a little dismayed at the level of shock being expressed at the level of ignorance being displayed at Brexit celebrations.
This shouldn’t be a surprise.

Happy Brexit Day everyone. Hope santa brought you all the £350,000,000 a week for the NHS which he fucking promised.

Remainer politicians were coping hard. Guy Verhofstadt insisted that the UK would soon rejoin the EU, and Sadiq Khan insisted that London was still a “European city”:
We will look after your star & work to ensure the EU is a project you'll want to be a part of again soon! 🇪🇺❤🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/QRdxGb5cCC

Not going to lie: I'm heartbroken. We've left the EU, but London remains a beacon for progressive ideas, liberal values, decency & diversity. To our EU friends & neighbours that contribute so much: you are welcome & that will never change. #LondonIsOpen 🇪🇺pic.twitter.com/l8CxoRfu7G

Londoners, if you’re struggling today, remember this:
Tomorrow you’ll wake up in a European city, where hundreds of languages are spoken and every race, religion, class, country and culture are represented. London will always be European, and London will always be open.
— Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan (@MayorofLondon) January 31, 2020
Leftist celebrities were also distraught and angry:
I feel so much more in control. How about you? Peasants and pensioners fishermen and farmers and not forgetting idiots and racists. So much better being fucked by Old Etonians and the Oxbridge/City elite?
I hope you choke on your crap cheapshit meat and extortionate US drugs

Does anyone have any idea how to delete a Facebook account. Oh and apropos a previous tweet, obviously directed at brexiteers. I meant to say GO FUCK YOURSELVES.
My fault for not checking my own epithets. Apologies if you weren’t offended by my ridiculous misspelling on this eve

The hashtag #thick began trending, as Remainers insisted that anyone who voted for Brexit was simply an idiot, because how could you disagree with the EU and not be a moron:
Brexiters have nothing to say, just empty vessels of hate, .Cummings said they were poor BECAUSE they were stupid. said it was a waste of money educating their children bcos they were genetically stupid.Arron Banks called them Northern Monkeys. leave campaign was aimed at #thick https://t.co/PjokUnES98

The brains behind Brexit…4 years on and #thick cretins still think the European court of human rights is part of The EU. The rest is repeating the meaningless drivel the con men sold them https://t.co/SR0QIdDtn1

It's wrong to say that everyone who voted for Brexit is #thick.
However, it is true that every thick person voted for Brexit.
— Parody Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson_MP) February 1, 2020
The word #thick only applies to anyone who today says "See! It was all project fear. Planes are still flying. There are no job losses, or supply shortages".
It means despite watching years of news explanations they still don't know there's a difference between deal and no deal.

Other Remainers simply spewed vile hatred against Brexiteers:
Have a lovely day you stupid racist wankers.

We’re all entitled to different views – that’s grand.
But anyone who campaigned for Brexit and is now dismissing the concerns of many re Brexit with insultingly touchy-feeley, livelaughlovey, lets-be-positive-together bollocksology can frankly fuck off.
You did this. You.
— CJohnston (@CJohnstonNI) February 1, 2020
I’m Done talking about Brexit.
I don’t want to hear, “you lost, get over it.” I don’t want to hear “taking back our sovereignty”
Fuck off. Get fucked by an anchor and just fuck off. You obviously don’t understand fuck all about how the world actually works.

Imagine being so desperate to prove you’re a Total Wanker by setting off fireworks to celebrate Brexit lol can’t relate x

Some said they would “fight back” and “resist” against Brexit, with some claiming it was all due to “muh Russians”:
We arrive at the point of no return. The liars have won the battle. They will continue to lie, to spin, to blame the 'others' for all of the pain that they have brought to the nation.

But many Remainers, of course, were depressed and crying:
I'm fed up of being pressurised to 'have hope', 'move on with positivity', 'campaign to rejoin the EU' & other various 'pull yourself together' pleas. But I can't. It's not that it's too soon, it's because I fundamentally do not see any chance of better days in my lifetime. 😔

I awoke today with such a heavy heart. I couldn't help but cry. It honestly feels like mourning the death of a loved one and hearing people you know slag off your dead relative. #Brexit

Brexit dinner tonight. We’re going to eat French food and drink European wine and cry. Definitely a cause to wear silly high shoes and be way too tall. pic.twitter.com/TbJ2k8kI8V

#TheLastLeg is it ok that I had a little cry at 11? Not sure if it’s the bears going or Brexit…

Today is a very sad day in history. Brexit and Trump. We’re really feeling the effects of these major cultural forces. They make me want to cry.
