The UK is voting on whether to leave the European Union. Does the 'Brexit' really benefit the UK though? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“The U.K. is starkly divided over Thursday’s referendum on the country’s membership in the European Union. Polls show that proponents of leaving and remaining in the EU have been locked in a neck-and-neck race for months.
These divides don’t fall neatly along party lines, however. The greatest divisions are socioeconomic, regional — and above all, generational.
The latest YouGov poll found that 64 percent of respondents ages 18-24 want to stay in the EU, while 24 percent support a “Brexit,” or a British exit from the 28-country bloc. Meanwhile, the figures for respondents ages 65 and over are almost the opposite — 58 percent of them support a Brexit, while 33 percent want to stay in the EU.
As one British journalist summarized: “The fewer wrinkles you have, the much more likely it is that you want to remain in the EU; the thinner your hair, the much more likely you are to yearn for Brexit.”
