In Great Britain there are 65,1 miljon people living (2015), if latest figures correct. 46,5 milj are allowed to vote in Elections.
Since when is 4 milj who protested after the final votes were counted more important than those who actually voted for Brexit. As you probably knows, there likelihood that a majority of the 4 milj who protested calling for a new election to be persons who voted for Brexit, is close to zero for everyone who have had the pleasure studying Theory of Science and Mathematic Statistic on University.
