The 48%

I'm tired of people talking about the will of the British people or saying the British people decided to leave the EU. 48% of us voted to Remain, which is nearly half the country.

Many of those who voted Remain are deeply upset by the results and some of the bombastic commentary on the referendum victory for Leave shows a real lack of understanding of this.

I see this a lot in American bloggers and commentators on the right, who seem to show no awareness of why such a large proportion of the country decided to vote Remain. To pretend that half the population were deluded fools will do no favour to their notion that Britain is now a great nation again.
