    I did this with the Scottish Independence referendum, so why not the EU vote?

    You must predict:

    1 % Remain
    2 % Leave (actually that is not a must)
    3 % Turnout

    Nearest person (as determined by me) will be declared the winner.

    50.0000% remain
    50.0000% leave.

    90% turnout.

    New vote has to happen.

    I would love this to happen. I am so fed up with people not voting because they say their vote doesn't matter. I could have enormous fun with them.

    I am not sure, though, that a new vote has to happen, as a referendum is only advisory. Apparently, local votes can be recounted, but there is no provision for a national recount.

    Mmm.....Best on vote split, not so good on turnout.

    I think I will declare democracy the winner.
