    The growing elderly population is a problem in that regard. My worry is even if the numbers were there, apathy would take over. I am not sure of the % of younger voters who took part in 2016, I seem to remember Sky News citing a figure of around 34% turnout, and that certainly didn't appear to be challenged at the time, but I fully accept that this could be way off.

    great, now we're stuck with those monkeys who can't come to any agreement at all, sigh.
    As if they are going to get anything done in the new extension they've got, and then the EU is going to give then ANOTHER extension.

    That one there? I agree despicable, if only the leave side had equal resources, who knows how wide the gap between leave and remain would have been.
    The government was required by the law that enabled the referendum in the first place to publish that brochure.

    I HIGHLY doubt the EU will give another extension, if nothing happens in the coming 6 months France will have a rock solid case to not extend and I'm pretty sure they will be able to convince other countries to their point of view. We'll see of course, but the EU knows this situation cannot continue indefinitely.

    And you think that was fair that the remain positioned government with all its lies, money, no - my tax money, and machinery behind it campaigned for leave without giving equal succour and resource to the leave side? and then has the cheek to accuse the leave side of illegal spending? more Nonsense.

    They accused Leave of spending dirty money, and were proven correct, and Leave accepted their guilt. Your point about fairness was what, again?

    As usual, reality has to intrude into planet dribbles. The Remain side were fined for some minor issues, certainly. But Leave were fined for a whole raft of issues with the setup of their campaign, the spending and so on. And if the referendum had been legally binding, it would have faced a challenge to its legality that would almost certainly have found it overturned. It was only the fact (I'll explain that word to you if you want, you don't seem to understand what it means) that it wasn't binding that meant it couldn't be challenged legally.

    It's an interesting turn from you though. Now that you know you've lost, you are starting to whine like a child that the whole thing isn't fair. The very thing you were lambasting about Remain voters, and now the boots on the other foot that's your go-to move. I'm not sure what stage of grief you are on now, but it does feel close to the end. So chin up.
    When challenging a Kzin, a simple scream of rage is sufficient. You scream and you leap.

    Pro-Brexit facts... Biggest example of an Oxymoron I have seen this past decade.

    I don't know how does length of particular rule affects one's understanding of democratic processes; clearly you think that matters, could you show your reasoning behind it?

    Maybe we should dismiss all German opinions until they replaced Merkel?

    If the hardcore brexiters wanted to brexit they have had a number of chances to do so. At each opportunity they refuse. Right now it really looks like they are looking for someway to just shovel this whole mess into a corner somewhere and forget it ever happened.

    That's just your opinion, clearly tainted by Western propaganda /s

    There are plenty of free press available in Russia as well (not all, but enough).

    But so what... How does that "fairness and legitimacy" in other country or my own country affects my understanding?
    Are you of thinking that only ones who participated in "truly legitimate and fair elections" can have any opinion on democracy?
    Is one-time enough or does it have to be reoccurring? Could you show your credentials that allow you to talk about democracy?

    As we're seeing with Brexit, people can live perfectly fine without understanding systems under which they live at all.

    Maybe Russia should try that if Russia wants to be considered democratic.
    Or maybe we can try something else; democracy isn't the only option, and there is really no upside to getting "recognized as democratic" on Western terms rather then our own terms.

    Rather, the UK has 6 more months to kick the can down the road and bring May's Deal back to a vote in early October.

    I stopped reading your linked blog post at "The UK gives the EU a gross contribution of £350 million a week. This is not a lie,"

    Seriously, after all this time....
