Did I somehow miss where he actually wanted to stay but voted to leave? I thought that the news source had worded it intentionally poorly to stir sh*t, not you.
Edit: I read it again and no I did not. Some of you need to take a deep breath and practice comprehending what you're reading. Adam's entire quote was "My vote -- I didn't think was going to matter too much because I thought we were just going to remain. The David Cameron resignation has blown me away to be honest. I think the period of uncertainty we're going to have for the next few months has been magnified, so I'm quite worried."
Perfectly sensible statement and one that's purposely taken somewhat out of context I bet.
1. He didn't think that his vote was going to matter because he thought that the result of the election would be to stay.
2. The resignation of David Cameron surprised and shocked him--nothing out of the ordinary there, though it was speculated.
3. He thinks that uncertainty over the next few months has been magnified and he's worried about that. Perfectly normal.
Sounds like a perfectly sensible person. He didn't say that he regretted his vote at all. Where do you guys get that he voted opposite what he wanted?? Hell, his very next statement to the interviewer may have been "Still, I think that we made the best decision in a difficult time."
You can believe whatever you wish. From the brief statement he made, it is more likely that he voted out as a lark and if he is young he really wanted to become even more socialistic than the country is now but thought it would be funny to vote that way.
See, my arguments are based on as much "fact" as you know but we draw a different conclusion from a simple statement. I personally think that the UK's withdrawal from the EU is the best thing to happen to that country in 100 years.
