Asked about the results of the referendum, the man, identified only as Adam, said, “I’m a bit shocked to be honest.”
“I’m shocked that we actually have voted to leave. I didn’t think that was going to happen,” he said. “My vote, I didn’t think was going to matter too much because I thought we were just going to remain, and the David Cameron resignation has blown me away to be honest.”
Prime Minister David Cameron, who advocated remaining in the EU, announced that he will resign from his office following the results.
“I think the period of uncertainty that we’re going to have for the next couple of months, that’s just been magnified now,” Adam continued. “So yeah, quite worried.”
Britain will be the first major country to leave the EU.
