It's the best I can do, dear.
What do you want me to do? Get on my knees and lie through my teeth about how utterly sorry I am, like Boris lied through his teeth about how much money we gave to the EU per week?

That's quite alright with me.

Absolutely, I'm annoyed with my friends who have voted leave, I'm very angry with my friends who didn't bother voting, and utterly furious with those who didn't vote and now are complaining about Brexit winning.

Lucky you! At the end of the day, the decision has been taken and now all I can do is team up with my fellow youngsters and try and not let this complete farce of an exit affect us too much!

I don't personally consider it marginal. If it came down to a couple of hundred votes, I would be flippin' furious, but it was a healthy 4% gap. I was merely expressing the views of many other Remainers who are decidedly more angry about the result than I am now.
This is what I've been going through. I'm at stage 7 today, so I shall be reducing our household supplies of cider by a considerable amount.
