And therein lies the problem...

(Generally) An older generation wishing to go back to the way things used to be with the UK not having to do anything anyone else tells them (Europe) and being able to fully control immigration.

As opposed to (Generally) a younger more educated generation who can see the benifits of greater integration and cooperation within Europe.

Since most youngsters don't know any different to the way things have been for 40 years, they don't have a truly objective way of looking at the situation. It has little to do with their level of education.

Personally, I voted to leave the EU because we have one group of people who are supposed to be running this country and don't see the need to have their efforts interfered with by people who don't have an exclusively vested interest in how the UK is governed. It amounts to concentrating the minds of our elected representatives without the distractions that Brussels throws in their way.

The UK has a representative in Brussels so they have a voice and a vote on what gets passed.

Another brexit argument, carefully argued and supported by references? No chance - that's what an expert would do!

History is not just personal memory. It goes further back than that, and even young people can read history books or watch documentaries.

But if we are basing our vote on what we can each remember, the fact that few people alive remember WWII is relevant. Thanks to the drive for European Union that began right after the end of the war, we have had decades of peace and growing propsperity in Europe, and practically no-one alive has personal experience of anything different. So in harking back to some previous Golden Age they are voting for a return to the arrangement of independent states that made WWII and previous European wars possible. That is the political environment that leaving the EU is heading towards. Let us hope we change direction before long.

Children do not have the capacity to understand economics or the financial implications/benefits of being in or out of the EU. FACT.

Children do understand how to respect each other as they have grown up in a more multi cultural society. FACT

This video is not a great reflection on the view of people who voted in or out. IMO

EU citizens are not going to be sent home. They play a vital role in our economic infrastructure and the UK will have to negotiate, in some way, how to control people entering the UK in the future.

NHS is at breaking point, prisons are bulging at the seams and our benefits system is financially cripling the UK. I am not suggesting for one minute any of the above is a direct correlation to non UK citizens but merely stressing the need to have a control on the numbers entering theUK.

Latest comment:

We already had control over non-EU citizens entering the country. Have we curbed non-EU immigration? No. Because there is a worldwide immigration crisis which we have contributed towards, and we consider ourselves a compassionate and forward thinking nation. We will be no more successful in controlling EU immigration now than we have been with non EU immigration, and bearing in mind most Brexiteers want access to the free market it's doubtful we'll even be able to avoid free movement of labour / population. Votes based on misunderstanding.

"NHS is at breaking point." Today I had to wait several minutes for an X-ray, having just walked in without an appointment. Shocking.

I know how those kids feel. I'm from a family of dominating mongs too.

If they can't understand something they're right by default.

They can never give way and allow another to take the dominant position.

Everything they understand about the world comes from the tabloids yet claim they don't believe everything they read.

They can't do basic logic, ascertain the context of an argument or detect contradictions.

My personal belief is that this is the result of a lifetime of alcohol abuse and gas-lighting via the tabloids.
