"While experts will pore over the finer details of turnout over the coming days and weeks, the cry will inevitably go up that it was older voters which won it for Leave - particularly in the south, south-west, Midlands and the north east.
It is a matter of fact that the older you are, the more likely you are to make the effort to vote - 78% of those 65 or over voted in the 2015 election, compared with 43% of 18-24 year olds and 54% of 25-34 year olds.
Despite the last minute rush to register - which saw 2.6 million people sign up, many of them younger voters, between 15 May and the extended deadline of 9 June - the breakdown may not be radically different this time.
Factor in research suggesting that support for Brexit was significantly higher among those aged 55 and over than among younger age groups - three out of every five voters aged 65 or over said they wanted to leave - then you have the foundation for Friday's result."
Analysis from SkyData regarding the number of voters by age.
One thing is for sure, we are in for interesting times ahead, the Labour party and the Tories are having their nights of the long knives, much blood to be spilt before the dust settles. Cameron could not resign fast enough, and as reported yesterday, he is not interested in how the Brexit progresses, as he would be handing it over to his successor. The first time in history a man left the sinking ship before the rats.
