Abstract

The vote to Leave is usually explained along the lines of voters’ socio-economic background. But by focussing on their circumstances it is as if we see voters as a manipulated group rather than as individuals who made a free and conscious decision, explains Alexis Papazoglou. Regardless of how one chooses to explain the result, key Leave campaign promises were false, and so a general election, where parties set out detailed and costed plans for citizens to decide on, must be the next step.
