But now voters are regretting their decision.

More than 3.2 million people have signed a petition for a second referendum on Britain’s EU membership.

Meanwhile, some Leave voters are feeling buyer’s remorse, according to prime minister Tony Blair’s former advisor, Alastair Campbell.

“I also think there’s a lot of buyer’s remorse going on. It makes you weep, but I was just on the way here earlier, bumping into a woman who stopped me and said she felt really bad because she voted Leave,” he said.

“I said, ‘Why did you do that then?’ She said, ‘I didn’t realise if you voted Leave it meant you had to leave’.

It comes after the British frantically Googled what the E.U. is, hours after voting to leave it.

And now, other countries across Europe are storming towards their own exit.

The fear of a domino effect is coincided with outpour in “Brexit” movements, as Portugal (Poexit), Denmark (Danexit), France (Frexit) and Spain (Spexit) to name a few push hashtags on Twitter to leave the European Union.
