Great Britain[edit]

Section 6.1.1 is called Great Britain. It includes Skye, the Shetlands, Anglesey and the Isle of Sheppey. Should it be renamed? Roger 8 Roger (talk) 04:21, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Usual convention in a wide variety of contexts is that adjacent islands are included with the mainland for summary purposes. So no, it should not. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 11:09, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

"not legally binding"[edit]

The present text states that in the Miller case the UK Supreme Court 'confirmed' that the referendum result was not legally binding. This might be taken to imply that someone had taken the contrary view. So far as I recall, no-one ever has, and it was not a point at issue in Miller. I therefore think the present text is misleading and the statement should be deleted. (talk) 19:16, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

Deleting unwanted data[edit]

2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendum: Revision history - Wikipedia

Earlier this summer [2019], the referendum results table included data regarding *both* "registered voters" and the "voting age population". Why has the reference to the "voting age population" been removed? This detail is relevant to the matter which is addressed by:

How many people have visited the bowdlerised version of the page and been denied the opportunity to see important data? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:03, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

With reference to "not legally binding" above[edit]

With reference to:

"not legally binding" [ 19:16, 11 August 2019 (UTC)]

I had obtained the impression that the UK Supreme Court had delivered the indicated 'confirmation' because the members of this illustrious pink elephant had the opportunity to participate in the discussions which the governing elite have amongst themselves. Is someone suggesting that the UK Supreme Court delivered their 'confirmation' simply because they were at a loose end and had an urge to remind people that they had arrived among the elite? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:17, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
