One common theme whenever the voting public are asked about the on-going Brexit process is that they were mislead during the campaign and are now desperate for basic information. They seem fully aware of their own ignorance on the subject.
Yet, when asked for opinions on Brexit, they have many strong feelings.
The recent BBC programme is a great example: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09xyjcm
"For the build up going to Brexit, on both sides we were told different things... How do we know what's going to happen?"
"They tampered with the figures."
"No one actually seems to know what is gonna happen. Or what the outcome's going to be."
"I just thought it was a straight out. You know. Goodbye."
"Who are going to be the winners and who are going to be the losers out of this? No-one knows!"
Why do people who clearly know that they know almost nothing have strong opinions on political matters? Why don't they just say "I don't know" or "I was lied to", why insist on making bold statements and casting a vote?
