The Telegraph cites a new poll and reports that the majority of older voters, Conservative supporters, and men are now backing the campaign to stay in the EU following a collapse in support for Brexit.
Personally, I’m not surprised. For older people whatever their economic or social status, the warnings are now clear. Older people in the UK will be seriously worse off after a Brexit win. They now understand that they can influence the result by voting Remain. Some of these older people will still be suspicious of foreigners but their own well being will come first.
In the end, the Brexit referendum voters will be xenophobic right wing populists.
Personally, I question whether the Conservative Party will survive. Unless Brexit MPs return to the fold, an early election will follow and a Labour Government will be installed.
