Many pensioners remember the world wars - even if only by family history. They see a reasonably united Europe as being unlikely to go down the populist demagogue route of the 1930s.

I have been surprised at some of them who voted Leave - yet they hate the idea of a hard right or left wing Government. The Civil Partnership couple in particular do not seem to recognise that they are potentially supporting a trend towards their relationship being marginalised again.
