Our understanding of 'democracy in action ' is carried out throughout the country every day.

Be it at the local football club, a Women's Institute meeting, or a company director's sales conference, the result of a vote, after a consideration of arguments made, is accepted.

Members are then obliged to fight for and carry the decision forward. Be it a 9/2 vote,or a 6/5 outcome, that is what we do.

With that in mind, and furthermore, for those who seek to claim that the referendum vote was too narrow and therefore inconclusive, they may also like to consider the following.

Throughout the voting day, for every minute, something like 1,400 more people chose to vote leave over and above those who voted remain.
