Nobody claimed otherwise :unsure::rolleyes:
So why did you point out the opposite? All elections and referenda are determined on the basis of turnout. Of course you are *technically* correct but no-one talks like that in the real world. All politicians all across the world talk about the "will of the people" or "the majority" and by that they are referring to people who actually voted.

Also the turnout for the referendum was slightly above typical turnout in a British GE. Check out the GE turnouts in 2001 and 2005, a highly depressing era in British politics.

I was simply responding to the question "Didn't the Majority vote to leave?" to which the answer is No.
If I had been asked "Didn't the Majority vote to remain?" the answer would have also been No.

It's actually the Remoaner middle class socialist twats who have contempt for the working class - plenty of them on Twitter. Dan Snow, Gary Lineker, that weirdo Queen's Counsel lawyer, Alistair Campbell, Tony Blair and David Lammy are just few off the top of my head. But you know this and just making it up as you go along. By the way, around 25% of graduates voted for Brexit, so it wasn't only the working class who voted for Brexit.

And you also clearly have no idea what is meant by the "elite". Yes Farage went to a private school but he is distinctly not part of the "cultural" elite, he is fighting against that.
Ahh Reece-Mogg and Johnson, the defining and classical bastions of the working class.

It makes sense. The voting stations close in 2 hours.

I wonder what's more worrying. That he was lying, or that he was telling the truth
Wasn't the Vote yesterday?

That's my point. Might have typed it but never sent it. Maybe posted it now by error

Edit: Nvm, just check your link. Thanks!

The Lib Dems and Green Party have been the biggest anti-Brexit parties out there and showed the greatest gains.

I wonder!

And Labour is also getting a whopping based on projections. They were meant to gain almost half of what the conservatives lost. Especially after their whipping in 2015

But they are actually still in the negative.
