Britain has voted to leave the European Union in a historic referendum.
A total of 51.9% of people voted for the “leave” side while 48.1% voted to remain.
Shortly after the results came in British Prime Minister David Cameron announced he will resign from office.
He said he’s not the “captain to steer the country through negotiations with the E-U.”
A new Prime Minister should be in place by October.
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney says the bank is ready to take all steps necessary to help keep the country stable.
Global Markets have been hit hard by the vote result, causing a big plunge in the British Pound. It plummeted to the lowest level in 31 years.
