"I'm delighted, I'm over the moon, I've worked hard for this over many years - as have other UKIP members -
this is our independence day, we should celebrate it"
Members of UKIP in Mid Sussex celebrate the national referendum victory.

Sad day for the UK. We shall lose Scotland and Northern Ireland. It will take years for the pound to get back to being a strong international currency and from next week I expect petrol/diesel to go up significantly. Fuel is priced in US dollars and the pound has weaken by nearly 15% overnight. Is this what Brexit really wanted? This is not scare mongering but the new reality!

What's your reaction to the E.U Referendum result? Are you surprised that Remain won the vote locally 53% to 47%? Should David Cameron resign? Is that doom and gloom for the UK?
