Half of Leave-voting pensioners think Brexit will be worth it – even if their family members lose their jobs.

That is the shock result from a poll of over-65s who voted to leave the EU in last year’s referendum.

Surveys have repeatedly found Brexit had far more support among older voters, while the youngest overwhelmingly chose Remain.

Now research by YouGov claims to show the full extent of what it calls ‘Brexit extremism’ a year after the historic vote.

The pollster asked 4,918 adults if it would be a “price worth paying” for their referendum vote to cost themselves or family members their job.

The sample was split roughly between Leave and Remain voters.

Among Remainers, 18% said it would be a price worth paying to stay in the EU.

But that figure rose to 39% among Leave voters who said it would be a price worth paying for Brexit.

Highest of all was the figure for Leave voters aged over 65.

  1. It’s hardly extremism…lol.

    We managed before our enforced rule by the EU. We have always traded with Europe, and only joined as part of the common market, to trade freely. We did not join to have laws and restrictions imposed upon us. We thought it would bring peace in Europe after the second world war, which instead, it has imposed even more oppression.

    I can understand why the ovet 65’s don”t want to be under EU rule.
