A total shitshow.
This morning (June 24), it emerged the UK has voted to leave the European Union. The outcome of yesterday’s referendum, won by a 52% share of votes, has forced Prime Minister David Cameron to resign, seen the pound plummet and plunged the country into uncertainty. Shock from remain voters and campaigners turned to rage around 7am when key leave campaigner and UKIP leader Nigel Farage called one of leave’s key arguments – that £350m a week currently given to the EU would be given to the NHS – a “mistake”.
Musicians have been responding to the mess all morning, with Geoff Barrow, Mogwai, Disclosure and Johnny Marr among the angry voices. Read their responses below, and stay tuned for further reactions to this morning’s news as it comes in.
