This is why we lost. I just donít understand why you genuinely believe that people didnít know what they were voting for, they did and this prevailing attitude from the remain side is what got every single leave voter down the voting booth on polling day while the EU loving students who could have swung the vote couldnít be arsed to get out of bed and vote.

For the sneering snobby bit take another read of the tone of the earlier post asking for a list of advantages to leaving.
Firstly a lot of people didnít know what they were voting for when voting leave;
Some thought they were voting for a total cut of ties with EU. Some thought it would stop Immigration into U.K. but have no affect on them living in Spain. Some maybe imagined the deal we have today.

As for remainers not voting; Iím sure some didnít vote as they were complacent and thought leave would never win, some couldnít vote because theyíd lived in the EU for over 15 years - yet it possibly affects them the most.
