@Dunkels King wrote:Completely false statement Nat. More than a million BRITISH ex-pats couldn’t vote, and many others who could vote could not get their voting in in time due to other problems with voting from overseas like having been de registered from the UK system. Not only that , what about the sixteen to eighteen year olds. Old enough to work, pay taxes etc but not considered to be old enough to vote in a referendum, which, as pointed out is not a legally binding vote on anything, only an opinion poll, yet they could vote in the Scottish independence referendum. The other point is that if this had been a national election then a 52/48 split would not be accepted as a majority. I am sick of Brexiteers just slagging off Remoaners because “we won in a democratic vote”. It was nothing of the sort. It was a biased campaign turning normal people in to xenophobes overnight, and illegally at that according to the team that investigated the finances of the leave campaign.
DK, why should people who have chosen to leave the UK get a say on its future? When you sell your house you don't get to choose the décor when the new owners move in.
While I agree a 52/48 split wouldn't win an election, the rules were there for all to see before the voting took place. I didn't see anyone moaning about that before the result was in.
