Nick Clegg has called for a second referendum and for under-30s’ votes to count twice “because it’s their future”.
The arch Remainer said: “This idea of a cornucopia where everyone from the US to Papua New Guinea will give us everything we want in terms of trade deals, the £350 million a week for the NHS…we know these things are not true already.
“Surely the public are entitled to say we want to have another look at this.
“We should reclaim our right, we should take back control of our destiny, we should be free to say whether we think the outcome measures up to what was promised.
“We should give every youngster under 30 a weighted vote of twice the value of everybody else, because it’s their future.”
Where’s the democracy here? A second vote because the liberals didn’t like the result they got the first time and under-30s can vote twice. Because it’s their future, not because statistics show under-30s are more likely to vote Remain or anything…Talk about stacking the deck.
We can take some comfort in the fact that, just like his time in coalition, whenever Nick Clegg says something the opposite usually happens.
