They were also being asked to do something they never had to do in the past - put party politics aside and make a strategic decision above the future of their country and they were ill equipped to do so.
Nonsense, this was the second referendum on continued membership. The last one was on 5 June 1975. Loads of complaints that old fools voted leave, those older people had had a previous vote on this

The government informed every voter by producing this that was delivered to every household.

"Why the Government believes that voting to remain in the European Union is the best decision for the UK.'
