Activist Gavaghan hopes for the exit poll outcome to be just a misleading prediction.

Richard Corbett MEP
He is a politician serving as Leader of the European Parliamentary Labour Party since 2017. For Corbett, the exit poll results mean bad news for Brexit and the future of British politics.
If the #exitpoll is correct, it’s the worst possible #Brexit at the end of next month, it will lead to the likely breakup of the UK, it’s a trajectory of decline for public services includingthe #NHS and it’s a reward for telling blatant lies in politics

BBC personality Dan Walker conserved all his surprise in a monosyllabic tweet:

He comes up with a positive message dedicated to all voters who have been heated up by the exit poll results:
The people have spoken….
Whatever you wanted let’s move forward. Please remember we live in a great country.

Brexit irremediably divided this country, Guardian columnist Owen Jones said:
I’m so, so sorry guys. Just utterly devastating. Brexit just smashed us. Keeping together an electoral coalition of Remainers and Leavers as the country bitterly divided just became impossible.

Actually, it was Corbyn who divided the country, Philip Hunt replied.
No. It was Corbyn who smashed us. Clear message on the doorstep. https://t.co/vq14Rnkupa
