    Interference by Russia on main media and social media. Farage and George Galloway played a big role in this. I don’t blame Russia for wanting to destabilise the UK because the UK has a long history of destabilising Russia going back to the 1800’s.

    Interference by Iran on main media and social media. The UK sponsored two coup d'états in Iran, this was their opportunity to get their own back. An Iranian YouTube channel was pushing out propaganda that the EU was founded by the Nazis.

    USA and particularly Trump wanted Brexit because it will make the UK more reliant on the USA.

    The Asian community being told that immigration for their families will be easy after Brexit.

    UK right-wing press, full of lies about the EU and towing the line that we can have a better deal than Norway outside the EU plus all the other lies we know about.

    The EU remaining neutral in the referendum and not countering the lies of the Brexit campaign.

    The stupidity of Angela Merkel opening her mouth over mass emigration when it was a touchy Brexit subject in the UK.

    The exclusion of ex-pats from voting.

    The absence of any one of the above would have brought a win for the remain vote.
