WATCH: “Young People DID Vote For Brexit!” – Passionate Young Patriot SLAMS Remoaners On BBC Panel
A staunch young Brexiteer hit out at the remoaners on last night’s BBC Question Time, arguing that every young voter he knew voted to leave and that their suggests that young people supported Brexit were simply not true.
The BBC-selected panellists last night were James Cleverly, Shami Chakrabarti, Stewart McDonald, Paris Lees and Peter Hitchens – a group guaranteed to spark feisty disagreements and heated debates.
After setting out sound reasons for keeping the voting age at 18, the Brexiteer was asked by host David Dimbleby whether or not he thought the older generations were right about Brexit and his response was absolutely stunning.
“I think Grandma was right and another thing that annoys me; who says all these young people didn’t vote for Brexit?
“All my friends – all under the age of 25 – all voted for Brexit, all my community voted Brexit, most people I know voted Brexit, most people in the North voted for Brexit!
“So it really, really drives me mad that politicians are saying that the young people didn’t vote for it; young people did vote for it.
“We know what we voted for; we voted to leave the customs union, we voted to leave the single market, voted to take back control.
“We don’t want a job first Brexit; we want a people’s first Brexit!
“That’s what we voted for; we’re a democracy and that should be the basics of it.
“Not about jobs, not about the economy, not about leaving the standard, about what people want; democracy. That is the bottom line.”
Following an interruption from Dimbleby where the Brexiteer was informed that polls have shown young people were hugely in support of remain, he quickly hit back.
He responded: “What polls? The same polls that said remain were gonna win and the same polls that said the Conservatives were gonna win a majority?
“I hear it all the time that young people didn’t vote for Brexit but all my friends and most of the North, everybody was voting for Brexit.
“I struggle to name anybody who didn’t vote for Brexit.”
