LETTER: Remember this is a democracy

Could someone remind Geoffrey Woollard that regarding the Referendum, we live in a Democratic country and are all entitled to a vote and our own opinions (Postbag October 20).

All credit to him for his mathematical achievements, but, how arrogant to assume that all 12,948,018 people who didn’t bother to vote would all have voted Remain.

However much Mr Woollard juggles the figures, it is still a fact that only 16,141,241 people voted to remain.
