Absolute fucktards.
People forget that their vote matters and that is a lot more than just an opinion poll.

No wonder the stats show how the lower educated voted in favour of leave.

The problem with democracy is that it assumes people aren't idiots.

Or something like that.

So those that voted to leave are just 'dumb scum'? Been reading comments on that bent quite often; don't you think that's a bit ironic given the criticism that was levelled at the Out campaign?

If some people regret their vote, I'd imagine their statistical outliers and nothing more.

Absolutely shocking comments going around - "coffin Dodgers and poor educated (lower class) have fucked this countries future"

Suppose they were all white as well so throw the "racist" jibe in for good measure

It's like people hate themselves as working class or something. Blow me down, I did not see that coming.

Self fulfilling prophecy from the cons. Pumped peoples heads with so much anti-migrant shit they were out done by people further to the right.

Hearing loads of the leavers saying now wish they had voted different, the most rediculous thing to say or do ! I bet a load though I don't want Brussels ruling me I'll show em and never thought through the consequences, hoping for some stability now.

Wonder if the Tories will get away without holding a GE and instating a new PM. Not that it hugely matters, country would defo bring them back in and UKIP would gain on Labour I imagine.

If Chuka runs, Labour might just do it. Anyone other than him and It'll be a Tory landslide.
