Is there any data available on the amount of people who voted Leave due to "unelected bureaucrats" to see how many of them actually voted in EU elections?

One thing I notice about the EU elections is that they did give representation to UKIP.
UKIP have in the region of 3,800,000 voters, probably more, and they won a referendum that , much as it upsets me , has wrenched the country into new dangerous path. They get one Douglas Carswell in our system.
In the 2015 elections for every 26,000 votes c. the SNP got a seat, the Tories got 32900 votes per seat . In the same election the Liberal party had 349.000 per seat and the Greens 1,100,000 .
Put it another way, half of Scotland’s population, the Unionist half , is now represented by just three MP`s
The Labour Party is now the third place Party behind UKIP and Conservative in gaining working class votes but its impregnable inner city seats stop any new opposition forming
I need hardly say I find the complete non representation of Liberal and Remain opinion whilst the future of the country is carved up an unforgiveable failure .Half the country have no stake in its future and are not even counted as people by our own MP in her crass references to the Triumph of the Will (or something )
We must have reform is this supposed sovereignty is to mean anything >If we do not get it then Caulfields supposed interest in returning power to the people is no more than the shallow self-serving pap we all suspect it is .
So when I support the Liberal Party it is not only because I will never forgive the Conservative Party for Brexit , but also because I have come to see that it is the one Party that genuinely wants a stake for us all in our future

Newms are you just a very committed troll operating from deep cover? Surely? You remind me of those soldierswho are found in the jungle and refuse to believe the war is over. Get a blog and see who is really interested

To be fair to the boring hot air wafflers, the post is titled EU elections.. you could kind've see it coming before you clicked on it. As long as there's an honest title that will suggest some self indulgent political guffery then we can always choose not to look!
