Postcards From the 48%

On the 23rd June 2016, the UK voted by 52% to 48% to leave the European Union. Despite both sides having been widely accused of relying on information ranging from the crudely distorted to the unashamed lie, neither side presented any of the precise information that should have been made available or thoroughly explored when addressing such a momentous choice for the future of the United Kingdom. Such irresponsibility meant that most voters were left to decide on an issue of colossal complexity based on nothing more incisive than personal emotion or partially informed preference, without the slightest indications of any actual consequences that such a choice was likely to result in. The documentary features many of those who voted Remain (the 48%) to show the other 27 EU Member States that it was far from a landslide victory and just why they are fighting to stay part of the European Union. Featuring Patrick Stewart, Miriam Margolyes and Bob Geldof.
