Re: It's a bigger percentage than the French got when they voted to join the EU,
France was one of the founding members of the EEC, which only 26 years later morphed into the EU.
It was actually a founding member of the European coal & steel community which became the EEC 16 years later. 25 years after that they had a referendum on signing Maastricht, to turn the EEC into the EU. They passed that by less than 51% on a 71.1% turnout, so a closer shave than Brexit, yet no-one complains that it should have been rerun the year after just in case the result would change.
