'I have not been hacked'
Citizens of Ireland, the UK and the rest of Europe woke up to the alarming news this morning that the EU had officially lost one of its biggest members.
After a heated campaign, the Leave side won the #Brexit vote by a slim margin of just over one million votes, a result which saw the current UK Prime Minister David Cameron stepping down this morning.

The actress, who lived and worked in the UK for a large chunk of 2014 while performing in the West End play Speed-the-Plow, live-tweeted a large chunk of last night’s results coverage, much to the confusion of her followers.
Sadly, she has now deleted most of what she wrote, but here’s a selection of the best…
