EUROPE: Don’t blame older people

We are told that 75 per cent of those between 18 and 24 years of age voted for the UK to Remain within the EU.

We are also told that only 36 per cent of that age group actually voted.

This means that just 27 per cent of those eligible felt strongly enough about their country remaining in the EU to cast their vote.

So instead of blaming the older generations because things did not work out as they wanted, perhaps those young people could try to discover why 64 per cent of their contemporaries could not be bothered to vote one way or the other.
