Today I am still feeling shocked, sad and scared.

I accept that we are a democracy and that everyone is entitled to their opinion. Nevertheless, the referendum campaign was, in general, disgusting and brought out the very worst in people. It was driven by fear and hatred.

My sons, aged nineteen and twenty four, voted to remain in the EU. As did 99.9% of their friends. The results of the vote show that over 75% of young people in the 18 – 25 age group also voted to remain.

In my opinion, we have done our young people a great disservice.

Rant over.
