Here, I'll post updates on the vote. Exit polls have it at about 52-48 for stay, which is within the margin of error.
I'll see you on the Dark Side of the Moon.

So much has gone, and little is new.

Yah it's going to be a stay.

I heard on the radio all week that the silent vote would be from the remain crowd because it is the "safer" choice.

But my experience has been the silent vote comes from anti-establishment or other fears of being censored or ostracized.

Interesting to see how this pans out.

It looks like leave has a chance! Early results are further towards leave than expected!

It looks like working class Labour voters are turning out to give the establishment a kicking going against their party leadership.

Corbyn wants to stay in the EU. They are taking a different view.

Corbyn has not shown the same avid support for remain as others. He's coming off as begrudgingly supporting remain - at least to me.

I agree he is not an avid supporter of the EU but his weak stance on the issue has contributed to working class voters choosing to vote leave.
