Voters who backed Remain have uploaded a string of overly-dramatic posts online, talking about how “depressed” they are over Brussels and how they will fight to prevent a “hard Brexit”.
The Brexit Eve hashtag was trending on Tuesday evening, hours before Article 50 is triggered – giving Britain two years to negotiate the terms of the break up with the bloc.
Despite the outcome of the referendum, voters across the UK took to the internet to explain how they want the decision reversed.
But Leave voters quickly joined in with fresh rows erupting over how Britain will cope away from Brussels – despite there being up to 24 months before before the official split.

One man said: “Anyone else going to midnight massacre of human rights? #BrexitEve”
