many people did not know what they were voting for
And that's different to any political election is it?

yes


it is different , when subsequently they claim that they did in fact know what it was that they were voting for

nobody has yet told me what price they felt they were voting for

yet it is becoming increasingly clear that they did not know!

for the press to make claims about the "will of the people" in such a circumstance is at best ill-founded

it is clear that far too many people have been duped by smoke and mirrors (or as I prefer to call them "untruths" and "lies" )

Why did people vote leave anyway? I get that it was meant to be a vote of rebellion, but against who exactly? Also, are the Leavers happy with the way things are going? Serious questions, I'm trying to understand the whole debacle.
