    While Britain gets to grip with the reality that is "Brexit" and political shock waves reverberate around Westminster with speculation that Boris Johnson is waiting in the wings, Sputnik takes a look at social media's response to the UK leaving the European Union.

    First up — here's #BoJo or maybe Britain's future Prime Minister Boris Johnson? Check out his hair.

    Ah, here's a good one — riffing off NWA's iconic rap album "Straight Outta Compton," produced at the peak of African Americans' struggle with oppression and police brutality, #1985.

    People in Britain — well those who voted Remain — are feeling utterly shocked, like the emperor has just turned up with no clothes on. Geez — imagine if that was Boris Johnson?

    And you couldn't have an almost laughable political situation in Britain without Mr Bean now could you?

    And it's certainly not a moment for tea and cucumber sandwiches….

    But it's certainly the right time for a bit of "Keep Calm and Carry On."
