Perhaps I will be proved wrong. Millennial or not, making a historical decision about the identity of one’s country and whether the British are European or not is a more emotive decision than voting in a general election. And emotive decisions tend to prompt a higher voter turnout.
The 2014 referendum on Scottish independence was a case in point, enticing 85 per cent of voters to the polls, compared with 60 per cent who voted in the general election. If millennials vote in June in the way they did in Scotland, both Brynne and I will have to eat our words.
For the Scottish referendum they showed up in droves and voted for independence. On second thoughts, perhaps I would rather the millennials stayed in bed!
