51.7% is by any sane standards, & the government & EU's guidelines for the referendums far too small a majority for a major decision that will change the political, economic & social landscape for a generation.

And yet getting 51% (on 69.7% turnout) in a referendum was perfectly OK for France to agree to create the EU in the first place.

You can't have it both ways. If 51% is enough for "in", you can't reasonably claim that 52% is insufficient for "out".
