Millennials and Media Push for 'Ban' on Old People Voting After Brexit

Posted: Jun 28, 2016 9:00 AM

According to a poll conducted after the Great Britain's momentous Brexit vote, elderly people were far more likely to vote to leave the European Union (EU) than those under the age of 50 years old.

Therefore, having lost the argument, supporters of 'Remain' are blaming the elderly for the decision, and even arguing that their voting rights should be taken away.

Stats show that more working class, poor, old and uneducated people were statistically more likely to support Brexit.

Here are just a few headlines from the aftermath:

“How old people have screwed over the younger generation” from the Independent 

“Old People Seem Intent on F****** Us Over Forever”, and, “Brexit Proves Baby Boomers Should Get Less of a Vote” from VICE


Young people were particularly upset with the Brexit decision and many made their voice heard on Twitter.  

Millennials often forget that these 'old people' were once young and vibrant too.  However, most of their youth was sacrificed fighting in world wars and defending their homeland from European aggression.
