No, I'm saying the turnout was around half the electorate and I believe it's fair to assume those that did not vote are pretty ambivalent about leaving, no matter what they may thought three years ago.
It stands to reason. Some of the more elderly, for instance, are begining to worry about losing their pensioner freebies when the chickens come home to roost.
It's all very well spouting meaningless soundbites about sovereignty, getting their country back, knuckling down and making Britain great again, and so on and so forth, but not if it means their pockets will be hit.
'Turnout' is the percentage of registered voters that actually voted.
Well, if they are 'ambivalent' it could mean different things, like they are fed up, don't understand, don't care' are happy etc,etc, but if they did care, why wouldn't they vote?
As a quite elderly pensioner, the things you mention are not factors that make me decide how I vote,as for younger people, they care little for the things that will matter to them when they are old, but which they ought to.
