We’d still vote Brexit, say people who pay little or no attention to the news

LEAVE voters who read newspapers from the back forward and watch the news twice a year have confirmed they would still vote for Brexit. 

Journalists sent to depressed Northern towns and conservative rural villages are finding that their residents are not on Twitter, have never heard of a Guardian liveblog, switch channels when Newsnight is on and would not change their decision in the slightest.

Norman Steele of Craven Arms, Shropshire, said: “I’m not one for politics. That’s why I voted Brexit in the first place.

“Apparently she’s got a deal now, Trevor down the market told me, but it’s not a good enough deal so they’re going to send someone else back to get a different one. That happened to me with a washer-dryer at Dixons.

“Why would I vote any different? We’ve not even left Europe and people want us to go back in it? Doesn’t make any sense.

“I do get the newspaper, but mainly for the sport and the crossword. And it’s the Mail, so it’s not political one way or the other anyway.”

Londoner Nathan Muir said: “But I thought everyone had changed their minds now. It said on the podcasts.”
