EU Referendum - 2016


Recommended Posts

As many of you will know the campaign on the UK's EU membership is in full swing and the vote is being held on June 23rd. This would make for an interesting scenario.

For issues, the Scottish referendum scenario is a good groundwork, namely breaking the whole issue in itself down - immigration, jobs, banking, health, a post-Bremain EU, a post-Brexit UK in general.

In terms of the map, the vote will be counted in individual counting areas. There are somewhat bigger than the parliamentary constituencies - for instance Sunderland (usually the first to declare) has three seats in the House of Commons but it is one counting area. So the regions will have to be altered somewhat. If I wind up making this however I could well just split it into the EU parliamentary regions - North East England, London, Eastern England, Scotland etc. Obviously it is primarily about the national result and which side wins, say, the Mid Sussex counting area matters less than which party wins, say, the Bristol West parliamentary constituency in a general election.

Even though neither side has an actual official leader, there could be many possible playable leaders, even throwing a few celebrities into the mix for fun and silliness:

Remain - David Cameron, George Osborne, Theresa May, John Major, Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell, Ed Miliband, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Tim Farron, Nick Clegg, Nicola Sturgeon, Alex Salmond, Leanne Wood, Natalie Bennett, Caroline Lucas, Lord Rose, Richard Branson, Lord Sugar, Jeremy Clarkson

Leave - Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage, Paul Nuttall, Michael Gove, Iain Duncan Smith, Daniel Hannan, Frank Field, Kate Hoey, Gisela Stuart, Lord Owen, Jim Sillars, Jenny Jones, Dave Nellist, Arthur Scargill, Tim Martin, Peter Hitchens, Katie Hopkins

Ideas welcome.
