It perplexes me that the ones who voted for Brexit are those that are either rapidly approaching pension age or are on it. The one who voted to stay seemed predominately the younger generations
This is often repeated, yet I've seen no proof. That said, would it eally be surprising? Young people with little experience of the world are often naïve and idealistic, assuming that everyone wants to be nice. It's the older folks with the experience of the real world who have a more pragmatic outlook, and a better understanding of the realities behind world politics like the EU.
Do remember that older people may be dying off, yet the eurosceptic vote has steadily climbed over the decades, so something is making those idealistic youngsters change their mind, and it's not just middle age.
Do nobody think the overly negative campaign to leave gave people an informed choice.
What, compared to the remain-funded Facebook "fake news" that was recently exposed, where anti-Brexit campaigners spent 4x as much as Leave supporters, trying to convince people that Brexit would endanger various cuddly animals?
Farage sat in the EU parliament collecting a salary while pushing his own agenda and not those of his nation. Isn't that treason?
He was elected to it, as the leader of the largest UK MEP group, and his agenda did get 52% of the votes in the referendum, so you can't really claim he wasn't pushing an agenda accepted by around half the nation. Nobody was forced to vote for him (I didn't, in case you're wondering).
Bit like the US where the fruitcake in charge got elected with 3 million fewer votes than the popular (and I use that word loosely here) candidate.
Nope, not a bit like that.
