    There had to be a specific % of population actually vote. Only time I'm aware of that clause being used in the UK. Or in other words rigged. In hindsight Mr Cameron should have used it too.

    Got out of hospital at 5.30pm what a bloody nightmare that was. They gave me the gas that they give to pregnant women in labour. Then went to work on it with furious zeal. Half twelve this morning I got home from dinner with my ex missus to be met by my drunken next door neighbour who invited me in for a drink. We polished off a bottle of posh Japanese gin and both drunk and playing silly bu55ers she squeezed said digit. It would be inappropriate to comment any further.
    It's all very well using WW2 analogies when referring to Brexit - 'spirit of the blitz' and all that. Imagine the curious atmosphere though if you were sitting in your air raid shelter looking around and realising that half of the people around you had voted to get bombed

    I think turnout was around 85% and 55% voted no. I'm not sure how that could be described either as rigged or a win for yes. Am I missing something?

    Arnold there are undoubtedly some politicians who lie. There are however a lot who do not. There are also some who could earn or have earned far more in private business than from their political careers. One poor woman who prior to going into politics had spent all her working life in overseas charities was murdered by a far right extremist who was heard to shout 'Britain first' as he killed her. Every piece I have seen written about her says how she only ever seemed like she wanted to do the right thing by and for her constituents.

    I know this is the guardian but it's interesting reading about my constituency, Sedgefield, and the one next door Bishop Auckland.
    Both have been safe labour seats for a very, very long time.
    I confidently predict that both will have Conservative MPs after the next GE.

    Turnout was 64% and 52 percent voted for devolution. However there had to be 40% of total population to vote yes for it to count. Imagine if the same was applied to the EU referendum, or more importantly, why was it only applied to the Scottish one.

    A quick look at Norway and the 40% is readily explained.
