Food for thought.
About 30% of the younger generation are said not to be registered to vote. Of those that are, only 36% in the 18-22 group bothered to do so. On the other hand, 70% of the under 30's voted remain. 75% of the 18-22 age group that actually voted, voted remain. A strongly Europhile younger generation is growing up. They will gradually join the ranks of the middle aged.
The Liberal Democrats, always the most pro-EU of parties, is now positioning itself as the party that will get us back in. There was a huge swing to the Lib Dems in a council by-election yesterday in Leatherhead:

I just can't work it out, the country went to the polls at the behest of the PM whether to be in or out of the EU, it was stressed that "If you are OUT, you can't get IN and if you are IN you can't get OUT"...... so the result was to be a final one.

Now, after the result has been declared, it comes out.... nobody expected the 'Brexits' to win and, since then (just over a week later) there have been more schemozzles both in and out of the 'Halls of Power' than you would expect to find in a 'Mashugana House'.

I'm making it sound better than what it is because, even in a 'Mashugana House' there are people who can take control and it looks like the end of the road for any of those who MIGHT have stood a chance.

So. what have we got now ?, if I could tell you I would BUT, as I first stated... I just can't work it out....who can ?. :lol:

You are absolutely right, but the way all of the political leaders are talking, they appear to be accepting this vote as being a mandate from the people that must be respected (in fact, out of more than 46 million eligible to vote, 16,141,241 voted to remain and 17,410,742 to leave, which I do not think is indicative of a huge consensus). The Liberal Democratic leader said something along these lines on this morning's BBC Today programme. However, he did also say that Article 50 can be revoked, even if it is invoked, suggesting that he sees invoking the article to be now inevitable, but that the process can be halted and reversed along the way. MPs usually have to vote in accordance with party instructions in the British parliament, and it looks like the main parties want the vote to be for invoking Article 50.
