Or to put it another way, 17 million people dragged 66 million people out of the EU. That's an irrevocable change that should have required a super-majority and a minimum turnout for it to pass. Neither of those barriers that we true democrats were asking for (typically a two-thirds majority with a minimum 75% turnout) were crossed. Comparing the result with general elections is invidious. Election results are reversible.
