Re: It was a very, very close decision...
It was a close result, but it wasn't a close decision at all. Approximately 17.5 million voted leave, 16 million voted to remain, and 13 million didn't vote at all. This puts the Leave camp at 37%, a minority.
It's been reported as a high turnout, but that's only when compared with elections. I expected much higher for such an important once-in-a-generation choice. Those that couldn't be bothered were, by implication, OK with the status quo.
