Referendum too close to call
Just let's look at the numbers:
- In favour of Brexit: 37.5%
- In favour of Remain: 34.7%
- Not voting: 27.8%
Not only does a public sector strike vote need 40% in favour, so did the 1979 referendum. It was very foolish to conduct a referendum on such a weighty matter without a threshold requirement. The only sensible policy is to stick with the status quo for a year or so, develop some proper policies to use outside the EU, and then run another referendum. The current leap in the dark with a government in disarray is folly.
