Last night’s Channel 4 News debate featuring young people talking Brexit didn’t exactly go to plan. In fact it was a complete nightmare if you are a London-based lefty Remainer who has convinced yourself that all young people oppose leaving the EU.

Instead of youngsters raging to stop Brexit and calling for a second referendum, articulate young people made the pro-Leave case and warned against ignoring the referendum result. Jon Snow appeared increasingly agitated.

There was predictably a total meltdown from anti-Brexit campaigners who paint themselves out as somehow representing young people. Bubble well and truly burst.
Did the camera caught me mouthing WTF at the end?
A show about young people's views on Brexit which includes the stats that young people are massively anti-brexit but then had just 10 minutes of a 1-hour episode with young people and they're mainly Brexiters. #BrexitInbetweeners pic.twitter.com/dgOO33YoSc

The Editor of Channel 4 News responded to the Remoaner tears by revealing that they had stacked the audience two-thirds Remain. How’s that for balance?
1/2 @Femi_Sorry thanks so much for coming on but let me clarify 2 points; firstly the debate lasted 22 minutes (here https://t.co/gDV5WmCvrh)
& secondly the audience was 2/3 remain & 1/3 Leave- to best reflect the young demographic whilst ensuring the debate was not too 1 sided https://t.co/Ru6zoMPfEd
