An era comes to an end as Britain finally frees itself from the 4-decade long relationship with the European Union. Hundreds of people gathered in Downing Street to mark the new beginning as powerful and emotional speeches in favour of Brexit were delivered. Just like the referendum the public was divided as some celebrated the exit while others mourned the government’s decision to do so.
One hour before the chimes of Big Ben announced the historical moment in Europe, Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted for the nation, promising to take them “forward”. He said, “For many people, this is an astonishing moment of hope, a moment they thought would never come. Check out the full video of the celebrations.
“And there are many of course who feel a sense of anxiety and loss.
“And then, of course, there is a third group – perhaps the biggest – who had started to worry that the whole political wrangle would never come to an end.
He admired the European Union for all their efforts but said that the organisation no longer suited Britain and that is why the country has decided to say goodbye.
Pubs and other public places across the UK organised parties to celebrate Brexit as speeches were delivered and songs were sung to show the support for the decision.
However, Pro-EU and anti-Brexit parties organised protests to oppose Brexit and candlelight vigils were held in Scotland as it was one of the countries that did not vote in favour of the referendum.
