But broadcaster Tracey Spicer is not happy with the British people, Twitter, yesterday:

Fear is a powerful emotion; xenophobia a primary motivator. It makes people want to build walls to protect themselves. #sigh #brexit

Quillette editor Claire Lehmann, Twitter, yesterday:

The irony of Australians on Twitter who are in favour of a Republic arguing that a win for #Brexit is a terrible thing.

Spiked editor Brendan O’Neill, Facebook, yesterday:
