Re: Will of the people?

Well, I might have been slightly tongue in cheek but a degree of statistical weighting of the referendum result would certainly add to what's "right". We all mouth "one man, one vote" yet because of that thoughtless mantra the old, who'll hardly be affected at all have determined the negative fate of the young who'll be affected a lot. It wouldn't take a lot of statistical scrutiny to come to the conclusion that 52-48 wasn't the will of the people if "people" are seen as "those actually affected by the result".

The reality is that, irreversible referendums should require a two thirds majority or more for the result to be actioned. Britain will never make such a stupid mistake again, but it's too effing late now.
