In June 2016 the United Kingdom held the European Union Referendum. The result has been almost universally interpreted as a win for those who want the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. Often the result is discussed as if it was an overwhelming victory for Leave. This book offers an alternative interpretation of the result, based on rational argument derived from the available evidence. It challenges the UK Government interpretation of the referendum result as a mandate for taking the UK out of the EU. Instead it maintains that there is a legitimate and valid case for interpreting the EU referendum result as a landslide victory for Remaining in the EU. It is a wake up call for all those Remain voters who feel obliged to respect the result of the referendum. They can respect democracy and continue to promote a future for Britain in the EU. It is also a challenge to those Leave supporters who cling to the idea that Brexit is being brought about by adhering to democratic principles.
