Both Scotland and Northern Ireland voted remain - I'm not sure about Wales, so at the moment they are talking about more referendums on whether they will leave us... England itself is really quite small.

I want my country back, but I think it died yesterday and, from the way the BBC is talking, there was a DNR notice on it.

It's a beautiful sunny morning. We've been in Europe for 43 years. The raging storms yesterday kept a lot of the older people who remember what it was like before from voting, and it's very difficult to get a wheelchair through rain like that. I was trapped in the hospital when the return transport didn't come; I got a cab at about 8.45 p.m., went straight to the polling station and then made it home by wheelchair.

If I'd had sense I should have washed off the hospital face, the chemical stains around the eyes and the stress-lines, and restyled my soaked out hair, but the TV was on and I just had to watch.

I've got this urge to go out to the market and reassure myself that it's still there; it wasn't like a bomb; nothing is destroyed yet - except potentially.

Ouch for you and for all of us! Don't you vote by post?

No, I tried postal voting once but they messed it up and I lost my vote.

Oh shit! Have you given up the idea?
