That is fair, I agree that some people voted leave because they felt disenfranchised. However, I think many others voted for other reasons that had nothing to do with political engagement and more to do with their own personal lives.
On the other hand, one can argue that some remainers voted to remain on emotions rather than sensible reasons. For example, an English woman voted to remain because her husband was from the EU [country name intentionally removed]. When she was probed about other reasons, she had nothing else to mention. I was shocked that people voted on basis of marriage rather than the good of the nation. Some people are married to Iranians, Russians and North Koreans, should we demand closer political integration with North Korea??
Certainly... see how happy they all look. Or is that just compared to Trump? Keep your hair on, Donald!

I personally think it's a bad idea to let ex pat's vote as well ...you leave you shouldn't get a vote. I don't know who's idea that is
