Letter: The EU Referendum Result Would Be Different Now

In response to the article: Opinion: What Does the Richmond By-election Result Mean for Guildford? Jim Allen commented: “the EU Referendum was not a Richmond or Guildford referendum but a UK-wide one, which clearly showed that both the Richmond and Guildford ‘elite’ are out of touch with the rest of the country” however, recent piece of social research has shown that, since the referendum, 120,000 leave voters have died and that, when all sums have been done, the result of that would now be a win for remain voters.

The calculation that is said to show a change in the majority view of Brexit

Far from being “out of touch with the rest of the country”, a high percentage of leave voters aren’t just “out of touch”, they are dead and gone!

The younger generation, who largely voted to remain in Europe, are now landed with the backward thinking and hankering for “the good old days” of a generation that is now in the process of dying off.

    Hilary Minor makes some sweeping assumptions in her letter.

    How does she know how many people died and how they voted? Does she trust a ‘remain’ journalist from one paper?

    We all know that politicians skew figures to meet their needs, let’s see how this pans out in court.

    Seen equally convincing data showing a slight increase for those who favour leaving. However it is all meaningless, we voted and will be leaving.

    Yougov polling in November found that 68% of people (unchanged from October) want the government to crack on with Brexit.

    Their research also shows half of those who voted Remain in June believe the Government has a duty to implement the decision made by the British people.

    Christian Holliday is the borough councillor for Burpham and campaigned to leave the EU.

    The writer is absolutely correct. Those aged 65 or over were twice as likely to vote leave whilst those under 25 were the opposite. So people may have died since the referendum, I imagine a good number of younger people would now be eligible to vote.

    This coupled with those who now have Bregret could also change the outcome.

    I find it difficult to accept that anybody is foolish enough to believe this nonsense.

    The impossible precision of the numbers should be enough to show it for what it is – clickbait.

    What are we to make of someone who appears to rejoice in the deaths of 120,000 people simply because they were thought to hold an alternative opinion?
