    If this is a win for leave because of protest I do really hope that the people realise how stupid they were.

    This referendum shoudl never have happened. Referendums are very stupid.

    Suprised how close Shetland are.
    Nonsense. There are legitimate grievances that people have with the EU and if they vote to Leave because of it, so be it. There's no perfect opinion on the issue (indeed, on most if not all issues) so it's absurd to call one side stupid. The reasons to vote Remain will be different to the reasons to vote Leave, and you should respect that. They're not stupid for voting on the issues that matter the most to them.

    North Antrim, #EUref result:
    Remain: 37.8% (18,782)
    Leave: 62.2% (30,938)

    Another fantastic result - Dundee votes in (60/40), but that's hardly a surprise.

    i think a leave vote might further reduce Labour and the tories hold on UK politics, letting the loonies in. God help us all.

    I just don't understand why people would vote to leave. All the leave arguments make no sense to me.

    Unreformed europe will lead to USE or worst case scenario corporations with the power to topple governments. Best to get out while we can.
