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.'

They have had two referenda in about 40 years, none of the right questions about say a plan, economic consequences etc... they were ill equipped for the task.

The only issue is lack of losers consent, something important in a democracy.
Losers are not responsible for implementing the decision and they donít have to accept the decision, they are fully entitled to campaign for change. That is the change occurs in countryís with a sovereign people - they are fully entitled to change their mind.
