By Rhiannon Lucy Cosslet.
In her latest column for “The Guardian”, Rhianna Lucy Cosslett, a young British journalist and author who writes for various British media, asks why there is still no mass movement of young people against the Brexit decision.
According to a study by the London School of Economics, which examined young people’s attitudes to Europe and collected data from almost 10,000 people under the age of 30 across the continent, more than 50 percent of the interviewed Britons showed a positive identification with the EU – one of the highest figures of all Member States. And it was not only bourgeois university graduates who were surveyed, but all socio-economic groups.
In addition, 64 percent of the 18 to 24-year-olds voted against the Brexit. But the outcry, the great mass movement, is missing. “You get the feeling that the younger adults have come to terms with their fate,” says Cosslett. She analyses the reason for this in her text, which you can read here.
