England isn’t the totality of the United Kingdom.
Northern Ireland and Scotland both voted to remain.
Just to keep that in the conversation.
Yes- and Wales is part of it as well (which you left out) and it voted to stay.
Wales alone was three times the size of the number of people voting in Northern Ireland (over 3 million).
I spoke mainly about England because Northern Ireland is less than a million people and England is about 55 million people.
The biggest block of “remain” votes was Scotland with 5.4 million people. Ironically there is now talk about Scotland considering a vote for independence again, because most of the population of the U.K voted for independence from the E.U.
The common thread seems to be (unsurprisingly) that people don’t like “other people” deciding things for them.
