This is how civil wars start; it needs a compromise!!
I doubt that almost half the country who were outvoted will sit quietly in a corner and say "Oh dear, we lost"!

They will expect some sort of recognition
It will take better leaders. Leaders who say, "sh*t, we lost, but lets try and make the best of it and lets try to save all the stuff we like about the EU" rather than going into direct denial and refusing to accept defeat. A country can survive heavy and fundamental differences if it comes together again afterwards. But what sows the seeds of civil war is people refusing to accept that they lost and refusing to move on. Cue Weimar.
