#Brexit: 10 Graphs which help explain why the UK voted to leave the EU

on January 18, 2017

Yesterday, Theresa May outlined her 12 point strategy for leaving the European Union. Meanwhile, NatCen a leading independent social research institute published a report which looked at the Leave vote and what drove it to win the referendum on June 23rd, 2016.

Her speech yesterday certainly seems to appeal to those who voted to leave the EU, with the 12-point strategy directly appealing to what the NatCen report highlights as the key factors motivating from the Leave camp.
