Abstract

On June the 23rd 2016, the people of the United Kingdom had to make a decision as to whether or not the Country should leave the European Union.


On June the 23rd 2016, the people of the United Kingdom had to make a decision as to whether or not the Country should leave the European Union.

 

Final results saw 52% of voters in favour of "leave": a petition started right after the referendum has put in question what scientists would define as the statistical significance of these results and has so far collected more than four million signatures of people willing to have another referendum.

 

As a non-British, yet European, citizen living and working in the UK I must admit being left with mixed feelings: like many, probably, on Thursday night I went to bed thinking it would be a nearly 50/50 victory in favour of "remain", but I woke up in the morning to a rather surprising result.
