#WhatHaveWeDone trending na Brexit

Wij moeten nog decennia met jullie beslissing leven. Dat is de teneur van de tweets die duizenden jongeren onder de hashtag #WhatHaveWeDone na Brexit de wereld instuurden. Uittreding is vooral een besluit van de oudere generatie, blijkt ook uit peilingen. Hoe jonger, hoe EU-gezinder. Een selectie hartenkreten.

We are the generation who has to live with the decision announced today, and we didn't get a say. #WhatHaveWeDone

We have opted for unemployment, no trade, low wages and a recession - but don't worry because we are 'free' #WhatHaveWeDone

'Serendipity kid' - @forsyth818

Can't wait to get a new passport, driving license, have no ehic card and queue in the non-Eu line when travelling #whathavewedone :-(

You know what makes me mad? Those who it will affect most were sat in classrooms whilethe rest of the country got their vote #WhatHaveWeDone

It will be fine: we're the 5th biggest economy. Update: 6th biggest. Sorry 7th, 8th, 9th... #WhatHaveWeDone

I hereby discard my British identity and would like to simply be known as 'human.' There are very few of us left. #WhatHaveWeDone

Freddie Martin - ‏@FreddieMartin1

Was going to do a #WhatHaveWeDone tweet but it doesn't feel accurate, #WhatHaveTheyDone is more appropriate

James Bevan, Londen - @jhjbevan

Today is no victory for democracy. Today ignorance, hate, fear and intolerance have won. Reason, peace and unity have lost. #WhatHaveWeDone

#WhatHaveWeDone - A generation given everything: Free education, golden pensions & social mobility voted to strip next generation's future!
