No, if you don't vote, you're not part of the electorate.But, my dear chap, nobody is claiming that Remain is somehow "the will of the people ".
Frequently, though, the inaccurate statement "a majority of the British people want Brexit ", or words to that effect, are used.
My post is an attempt to explain why that is at best clumsy language.
At worst, it distorts the truth for political ends.
We have a democratic mandate for Brexit.
A majority of the electorate did not vote for Brexit.
