    I heard something like 25-28%, which is not a vast majority.

    Two-thirds according to Sky News for 18-35s. Not sure how they got that. The Opiniom Poll scored 64% of 18-24yos as voting [ie. the opposite to Sky but from a 2000 strong sample] according to the Guardian. FT had interesting analysis on chart halfway down, here: http://blogs.ft.com/ftdata/2016/07/...ow-about-turnout-by-age-at-the-eu-referendum/ . Despite extended time for Registration & possibility of postal vote, turnout among young consistently falling except for 2010 GE. Oly

    Thing is, Footloose, if you were able & willing to use a PC it was possible to find out loads of stuff, especially on the EU's own web-site. Cheers, Oly
    It could also be argued, Graeme, that the current PM has been put in place by the 'vote' of only one person! If May wanted to call an Election, could she get enough support to overturn the Act that committed us to 5 year Parliaments? I can imagine there will be quite a lot of MPs - and Party leaders, especially - none too keen to have one. Cheers, Oly

    That's my worry, Lynn. Balancing that was the testimony of a gent (a former French Foreign Minister?) asked to review France's anti-terror resources. He had nothing good to say about the EU whatsoever, although he was polite enough (unlike one of his successors!) not to mention the EU by name. You can listen to it on iPlayer from about 1.30pm, BBC lunchtime news. Hopefully, they will call in the Administrative Receivers soon. Oops! Can't do that. Roman law. Oh well. FleetwoodMac to follow the Eagles? Cheers, Oly

    Not the same people... Just the same age group as those not voting
    That age group who did vote, voted strongly for remain.

    If we had a general election now then who would win and why?
    Better to let May get a bit of a track record and Labour to get a leader supported by the PLP. Let's see how events unfold for a few months; only then have an election.

    It's the "hand it to me on a plate" generation. It's not all their fault. We made them what they are. We're all " hand it to me on a platters". Just that with each generation it becomes more blatant
