Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A friend uses slightly different, but more justifiable imo, arithmetic and comes up with something more ambiguous

For Brexit - Brexit Party, UKIP, 50% of Change UK, 50% of Conservatives and 50% of Labour = 48.10% of the vote

Against Brexit - Liberal Democrats, Green Party, SNP, Plaid Cymru, 50% of Change UK, 50 % of Labour and 50% of Conservatives = 50.38%

the problem we have is there really should be a halfway position that could be negotiated. Sadly that might have been achieved if Theresa May had had a different mindset and was willing to reach, but both sides are dug in and demand the abolutism of winner takes all.

keep to the Fen Causeway
