It’s real pain for David Cameron but champagne for UKIP leader Nigel Farage after Britain’s historic vote to leave the European Union.

The British prime minister announced he’ll step down by October, just hours after the result became clear.

The poll showed a near 52-48 percent split in favour of leaving the bloc that the UK joined more than 40 years ago. The broad picture of how the country opted show London, Scotland and Northern Ireland dominated the remain vote.

Some say the United Kingdom itself could now break apart. Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has suggested a new independence referendum is “highly likely.”

Uncertainty now abounds, but for the Brexiters it’s time to celebrate the dawn of a new era.
