    I get it you're disappointed with the result, especially for 16-17 year olds who feel cheated out of a vote and a chance to make a difference, (although by the looks of it it wouldn't have made a difference considering the vote difference was 1.2 million and the eligible 16-17 vote would be 1.4 million, and assuming that approximately 70% turned up in line with the turnout (that is generous for the younger vote) then they would not have made it.

    but to these idiots decrying the elderly for having a vote, from 65-100, these people have been British and commonwealth citizens for a darn sight longer than we have and have lived through tough times in and out of the EU. But that aside, for the supposed liberal left to begrudge a UK citizen of age from voting is disgusting. You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves.

    It's not all remain people, but the loud annoying vocal minority who are making this point time and time again, you are literally becoming as bigoted as the caricature you make leavers out to be.

    It's like social justice warriors all over again

    I discredited their whiny opinions when they condemn the votes of the educated elders who have paid taxes longer than they've been born in favour of the trendy youth who get their political advice from Twitter, Instagram and Buzzfeed
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
