People are sharing pictures of the Brexit riots – 13 favourites
It’s not only Halloween – you know this already – it is also Brexit Day, the day when the UK was (supposed) to leave the European Union.
If it didn’t happen, Boris Johnson and his fellow leave enthusiasts predicted all sorts of chaos, including Tory MP Mark Francois who memorably said the country would ‘explode’.
So naturally people have been marking exactly what’s been happening on the streets of the UK using the hashtag #brexitriots and really, it’s shocking stuff.

Just took my 93yr old Dad to riot, he's registered stupid. In a very loud voice he said "Help me set fire to this bin & chuck it through Oddbins window then we'll go down Spoons" & a cheer went up from all the pigeons & a DHL delivery driver.#BrexitRiots#BritainIsExploding
