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 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.

Only 56% turnout, which is a bad sign for remain.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
