    Waaaaaaaah!

    Not faaaaaaair!

  2. Artist Formerly Known As Infidel Tiger

    Turns out a Facebook update doesn’t count as a vote.

  3. Judith Sloan

    Or Twitter entry

  4. NormaP

    With no exit polling, how were figures for both voting, and turnout calculated?

  5. Motelier

    Turn out is easy to calc

    This is just a table of how many in each age group turned up to vote.

    Says alot really

    The more freedoms you have lost over your life the more political you are going to be.

  6. Cannibal

    Gee,
    Parents and grand-parents care for their families.
    Who knew?

  7. duncanm

    couldn’t click ‘like’ to vote – couldn’t be bothered.

  8. duncanm

    .. and because of that – look for the push by the usual suspects to move voting from booths to mobile devices.

    You heard it here first.

  9. Gertrude

    I blame Neil Wheedon Watkins Pye.

  10. stackja

    The infants believed the MSM on Remain and so did not bother voting.
    It seems GB will be LB [Lesser Britain] in the future when the infants are in charge.

    18-24: 36%

    Mostly living with their parents, not able to stand on their own 2 feet, no doubt. Yes, clearly those are the ones who (A) know best, of course, yet (B) can’t be bothered to vote.

    They just got rescued again by their parents and grandparents and are too stupid and arrogant to recognise it.

    Good lesson to parents though: On election day, just don’t wake them up.

  12. Bruce of Newcastle

    Meh.
    Back to Facechook.

    The 83% for 65+ is amazing since it was miserable weather and health can be quite a barrier, even to doing postal votes. It appears some real sheep stations were riding on this vote according to the old wise men and women.

  13. a happy little debunker

    So many leftist heads exploding – so little time to savour each & every one

  14. GregJ

    Let’s see if I’ve got this right:

    So, the old buggers got out in force – 83% of them – in their zimmer frames and walking sticks, in shit weather, and voted to piss off from the EU.

    And the young – 75% of them – couldn’t be bothered to even vote.

    And now the young are whingeing because the vote didn’t go the way they wanted it to go, and now want another vote because they are unhappy with the vote that they couldn’t be bothered to turn up to?

    What sort of people are we breeding these days?

    I’ll run with the Wee Debunker. I haven’t had this much joy since Howard’s reelection in 2004. One particular Leftard prat writing for the CT promised to leave if H was returned. H was returned with an increased majority as I recall, Latham disappeared (only to be resurrected as a ‘columnist’). The CT was besieged by letters demanding the aforesaid plonker leave and cease writing for the Crimes, but no, he stayed, a pathetic figure full of otiose, overblown flufferclass BS.

  16. Makka

    “And now the young are whingeing “

    Situation normal, Greg.

  17. Richard H

    It seems GB will be LB [Lesser Britain] in the future when the infants are in charge.

    We can only hope and pray that said infants will be wiser when they are older.

  18. Fat Tony

    I don’t know if those kids, who didn’t vote, would have all voted to Remain – most that age vote the same as their parents.

    It’s probably just the noisy minority of young leftist dickheads (SJWs) making out that they represent all young people. Bit like the noisy leftist dickhead gay lobby wants everyone to think they represent all gays.

  19. Roger

    Looks like they’ve just learned their first lesson in democracy: Turn up.

  20. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Looks like they’ve just learned their first lesson in democracy: Turn up.

    Well said. If you can’t be arsed turning up, then what right do you have to protest the vote of those who did turn up?

  21. a reader

    This is proof that you shouldn’t be able to vote if you’re under 25 and don’t hold down a full time job.

    As it is, how do we know that the young people who didn’t vote would have chosen remain anyway? The left are the world’s worst losers.

  22. Boambee John

    So they believed the pollsters and betting companies, who said Remain was in the bag, and didn’t bother to vote.

    LOL.

  23. Boambee John

    PS,

    When will they attack the polsters and bookies for misleading them.

    Arrogance and fudging by pollsters might have cost Remain the pool!

  24. Makka

    When will they attack the polsters and bookies for misleading them.”

    I think Leavers deliberately mislead the pollsters to push a good turnout. It worked too.

  25. Roger

    Hell is Alresford.

  26. Marcus Classis

    What was Tony Abbott’s role in this tragic disenfranchisement of da yoof?

  27. calli

    And yet, I am an early-career academic and so I am forced to move back, every summer, to live with my parents because I cannot afford to pay rent elsewhere after my temporary teaching contract ends.

    Mummy and Daddy need to cut the cord.

    What a putz.

  28. Stimpson J. Cat

    A # is not a vote kids.
    I know it’s hard to choose between two tickboxes rather than a happy face or sad face emoticon, but standards must be maintained.

  29. Notafan

    Tom should just top himself, if that’s what he really thinks

    What a miserable little souless man with his contempt for humanity.

    Expensive houses bad cheap houses also bad. Can’t survive on my income now but tomorrow will be even worse.

    Brexit as the end of the world as we know it. He is to Brexit as Flannery is to climate change.

    Looks like we will be enjoying the Brexit vintage of lefty tears for quite a while.

    Given so many ‘young uns’ simply couldn’t be arsed turning up for something so equivocal, gives pause for thought as to their futures in 20 odd years when the old depart, or are too feeble to govern or simply can no longer be arsed them selves. I’m of the opinion that we are on the cusp of a pivotal moment in history. Which way this pivots will be decided by the people, preferably by votes and governments and not bombs and bullets….I am In awe of the voters from both sides of the political divide who understood that for their generation…this was their finest hour. I only hope that America hears clearly the clarion call to arms that the UK has sounded.

  31. Tel

    I would guess that the 18-24 year olds mostly didn’t really care, because they didn’t have much interest in either how the economy works, or what the EU does. Only the Twitter followers who got swept up into the SJW campaigning took an interest.

  32. Tel

    So they believed the pollsters and betting companies, who said Remain was in the bag, and didn’t bother to vote.

    On what basis do you believe they would have voted “Remain” ?

  33. Tel

    Mostly living with their parents, not able to stand on their own 2 feet, no doubt. Yes, clearly those are the ones who (A) know best, of course, yet (B) can’t be bothered to vote.

    If you are going to just make shit up, you should go work for Hillary or something.

  34. Malvina Reynolds did it in a more entertaining way than little Mr Alresfordette. He should sing along into a mirror.

  35. Roger

    What a miserable little souless man with his contempt for humanity.

    He needs to get out more and meet the right girl. Preferably a Leaver.

  36. Fleeced

    Let’s not assume the non-voters are lazy retards. Indeed, they may have been wise enough to know that, having no clear opinion on the matter, they should abstain.

  37. Roger

    Indeed, they may have been wise enough to know that, having no clear opinion on the matter, they should abstain.

    Quite so, Fleeced; it’s only the bad sports wanting a second go when they couldn’t be bothered to show up the first time who are the rightful subjects of criticism.

  38. Fleeced

    75% of 34% = 25.5% of 18-24 year olds wanting to stay in the EU
    39% of 83% = 32.4% of 65+ year olds wanting to stay in the EU

    So much for it being old people dragging them out of the EU.

  39. Fisky

    Ashcroft poll shows Sikhs and J-ws voted 52% and 54% for Leave. Hindus and Muslims 70% for Remain.

  40. Squirrel

    Even after this “end of times” calamity, there will doubtless still be more younger Europeans (including from western Europe) wanting to get into the UK than vice versa.

  41. Barking Toad

    duncanm @11.58am

    You’re right.

    That’s why the left want the voting age reduced to 16 so they can manipulate the uninformed youth via spacechook.

  42. Motelier

    I wonder what will be the breakup of age groups if this gets to happen.

  43. rickw

    Some of that 65+ group can claim to have saved Britain from the Germans twice in one lifetime!

    What increadible people!

  44. cynical1

    What sort of people are we breeding these days?

    The kind that are produced after a long march through what passes for an education system in the West.

  45. Monkey's Uncle

    Given that we are talking about the results of a non-legally binding referendum here, it is pretty silly to draw attention to the possibility that one side won not because they actually had the support of the majority of the electorate, but merely because their supporters were more likely to actually vote than the other side. This only gives the political establishment more of an excuse to ignore the result down the track, particularly if there is economic punishment orchestrated by the powers-that-be for Britain defying the European superstate.

  46. Pat Warnock

    Ordinary people are tired of being told what to think by the elites in politics universities and stock exchange gamblers – none of whom live in the real world. Mr Cooke on the ABC this morning denigrated the right of people to vote Leave. What arrogance! By the way if my party doesn’t win on Saturday can I petition for a re-run?
