So less than 38% of the total electorate voted to leave.
In the words of Gil Scott-Heron; "Mandate, my ass."
if a person cant be bothered to vote then they cannot passionately complain about the result.

it doesn't matter how many voted for against or didn't, we live in a democracy, if the people vote for something then it stands, anyone who argues against it is arguing against democracy simple as that. What next we don't like the way an election went so start legal action to change it.

It was an advisory referendum. People arguing that aren't arguing against democracy, they're arguing for parliamentary sovereignty and the upholding of our political structure.
So it would be absolutely fine for the government to take notice of the result of this referendum and then order independent studies to analyse the short and long-term impacts of a Brexit, and come to a reasoned conclusion that accounts for the best interests of the economy.
I know that is abhorrent to many but I'm simply pointing out a few facts about our system.

Perhaps the Government should have worded it differently in their propaganda leaflet then.

Potentially 30million voted out or 29 million voted in,
But 13 million either could not vote or did not care enough.

Just posted for clarity.

Wrong, less than 35% voted to remain and less than 38% to leave with the rest abstaining.

Brexit always sounds very close to bricking it to me.

Never mind the leave voters were mostly old farts anyway, give it 5 - 10 years and we can vote back in, the days of UK industry are over, we are not a powerhouse anymore and we never will be, unless you are looking forward to a rapid decline in wages and living standards we will never be able to compete with the likes of china and india, your patriotism is misguided anyway you celibate leaving the EU while our utilities and public transportation belong to European state owned companies and our government departments and NHS are being sold off to American companies to run, none of that has anything to do with the EU, all the brexit voters have done is reduce our freedom to get the hell out of here, reduce our rights and mute our voice on the world stage.

Bla bla bla get over it and move on. I would move all the immigrants next door to the people who wanted to stay. Scotland can have plenty but just remember we bombed their house , killed their relatives, moved them to a foreign country where they don't speak the language and then when they are about 20 years old you will be asking why do they want to bomb this country.

Then remind them in the relevant thread then. They will kindly laugh at you if you dont think 72% turnout is high and expect 100% of people to vote.

The point is people are claiming the majority from both viewpoints when the facts support neither, just 13 million voters who either could not or just did not want to vote.

The turnout for this vote was the highest turnout in a long time .. should be proud to say that you did vote and had your say - no matter the outcome!
The U.S only has on average around 55% turnout on a presidential election!!

Perhaps those who didn't vote were the smart ones, considering we have business owners who voted leave to get away from EU red tape yet can't name a single EU law they are opposed to, perhaps people chose not to vote as they were undecided having not known what either option would bring as all the media bombarded us with was blatant lies and propaganda from Ukip and their ilk.

The way it should be read is that 13 million people were happy for the vote to go either way. Those 13 million are happy we voted out.

Please, don't put ideas in their heads.
*Maybe the 13 million who didn't vote were non English speaking immigrants who couldn't understand the whole thing so didn't bother!


*This may or may not be a poor attempt at a joke.

but in your system nobody would ever have a mandate to govern... the SNP got almost all scottish seats with 31% of the vote., its the system we live in. always have so yes Brexit does have a mandate. but what mandate did gordon brown have to sign us up to lisbon?

He had a mandate from Parliament because it was debated in the House of Commons and then voted on which is the system we live in.

It's funny how a large number of under 25s didn't bother to vote yet swamped social media sites complaining about the result . Unless you can vote via Facebook,Twitter , Instagram or an app it won't happen. They simply couldn't be bothered to turn up and vote . It's not shame on the oldies ,its shame on the idle , can't be ar$ed yoof.
