York voted 58 per cent to Remain in the EU

Nigel Farage can do one


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

The popular vote was 52-48 to Leave, but York recorded a sizeable pro-EU majority, going against the national trend. Fifty-eight per cent of York voted to Remain in the EU, with just forty-one per cent voting to leave it.

York followed other major liberal cities and student centres by voting Remain, joined by Bristol, Oxford, Edinburgh and Brighton, albeit more narrowly than most of those. 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.
