Thumbs up Referendum Sweepstake!

NO argument, NO discussion. Only post your predicted percentage.

I'll go for Remain by 4.5%

Edit to say: percentage is simply the difference between the two total votes.

Early morning security alert at a city polling station/s. polling suspended at key stations. No Vote declared. New date set. Increased time to intimidate the demos. Consequent result 3% majority Remain.

failing that 8% majority for Leave.

Local journo asked me whether I thought Cambridge would be 60% remain or 70% remain or higher. I refused to give him a guess, for obvious reasons (he might have printed it, and I might have been wrong, and I would then look silly).


Judging from the posters and stakeboards I've seen - hundreds IN, zero OUT (oh, and one "Vote Trump") - one can't really come to any conclusion, if one quite reasonably assumes that the OUT brigade do actually exist but (like the local Tory voters) are too ashamed to admit it in public.

I know some people who work in a respected media newsroom that would be instantly recognisable to anyone in the uk. Word there is that it's similar to the Scottish referendum, people are telling the polsters one thing but will actually do the opposite. Only time will tell, and I readily admit it's something of a catch 22 situation.

I'll simply say less than 1% between the two camps on the day.

I think the decision will rest with the younger generations, (born after 1955), who have never experienced life outside the EU and will be feeling rather insecure about venturing into the unknown, which is what a 'leave' vote would mean for them.


The older generations will vote for 'let's get our country back', the rest will be frightened by suggest economic implications and feelings of possible insecurity, so will vote for 'The Devil you know'. Possibly 60/40 Remain, (unfortunately!).

"Score draw. Remain to win on penalties" - That would be in Germany

Remain loses by an own goal

Everyone I know apart from Mrs E is voting out. I am pretty certain that Project Fear will have a big effect. 54/46 to stay.

Leave : 11,784,525
Remain : 11,784,527

As far as I know, if it's close, there's no recount...
