0 0

Google(NEW YORK) — Voters in the United Kingdom have chosen to leave the European Union, but it seems some people in the country still feel confused about the situation.

Google Trends revealed what was on the minds of people in the U.K. as they searched for clarity around the so-called Brexit. After the polls closed Thursday night, Google reported a 250 percent spike in this question: "What happens if we leave the E.U.?"

That search for answers continued Friday morning as people in the U.K. searched for what happens next. The No. 2 most-searched question: What is the E.U.?" 

Another search worth noting: Google saw a 100 percent spike from people in the U.K. wondering how to get an Irish passport, which would allow them to still enjoy the same rights of an E.U. citizen.
