    So right. Brexit stole his future. 40% youth unemployment in the EU. He could have spent his life on benefit, now he may have to work for a living.

    “Leo is a highly intelligent young person, a member of the UK youth parliament and far more informed than any of the middle aged brexiteers in the comments.” He may very well be all of those things, but based on this interview alone all he did is serve to remind us of why the slight majority of the British people voted to leave the EU. I voted to remain, I personally believe the pros out-way the cons of remaining in the European Union, however remainers and the left in particular have to acknowledge where we went wrong. We didn’t offer a compelling argument with regards to remaining in the EU. We dismissed and mocked the concerns of people relating to immigration for example, and if that didn’t work we labelled those people racists, nazis, islamaphobes, xenophobes etc. Our spokespeople were a cavalcade of fear-mongering, condescending, out of touch and widely disdainful upper class liberals. It is in this category the young lad who stuttered so articulately in the interview above, falls into. Yet it appears we’ve learned nothing from our mistakes. We need to put forward coherent and compelling arguments for believing we are better off in the EU, instead of assuming some form of faux moral high ground and calling anybody who doesn’t agree with us a “nazi”. We only have ourselves to blame for allowing notable pro-brexit politicians to be regarded as the underdogs, the true working class hero’s and the last torch bearers of common sense.

    Why so many young people voted to stay was because they thought they wouldn’t have to pay any student fees .

    And the 16 year old soldiers who fought and died so you could have the initial vote didn't do it so you could over turn it because it wasn't the result you wanted
