Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Something that many of us commented on at the time was that the decision to leave the UK was founded on the voting of predominantly older people.
This has been borne out by a recent survey of the 2 million people eligible to vote now who were too young at the time. The survey shows that 74% of them would vote remain.
As Brexit will probably affect them far more, and at least far longer, than it will the aging population who voted for Brexit it would not seem unreasonable to have another vote.
However I cannot see the Brexiteers being swayed by this.
