Brighton voted two-thirds to Remain in the EU

Nigel Farage can do one


68 per cent of Brighton voted to Remain in the recent EU referendum, despite the popular vote going to Leave. 

The popular vote was 52-48 to Leave, but Brighton recorded a pro-EU majority of more than two-to-one. Sixty-eight per cent of Brighton and Hove voted to Remain in the EU, with just thirty-one per cent voting to leave it.

Brighton followed other major liberal cities and student centres by voting Remain, joined by Oxford, Edinburgh and Bristol. The most pro-EU place in the entire country wasn’t actually in the country, with 95 per cent of Gibraltar voting to Remain in the EU.
