AggregateIQ Brexit and SCL

UPDATE 02/04/2018: Looks like AggregateIQ may have had a contract with Cambridge Analytica, but didn’t disclose it because of an NDA… But all spoilt by a unsecure gitlab instance.  https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/03/28/cambridge-analyticas-secret-coding-sauce-allegedly-leaked/


I wonder why AggregateIQ state that they have never entered a contract with Cambridge Analytica, but don’t mention SCL. Except they do mention they have never been part of SCL or Cambridge Analytica…

BrExit

So, biggest turnout at a UK referendum with 72.2%, we have only had 3 though.

It was so close, 27.8% didn’t vote and thus 34.7% of the UK population wanted to remain and 37.5% wanted to leave. The pie chart really emphases this.

As for comparing the 2 referendums, the vote to join the EEC in 1975 saw 17.3 million vote join with only 8.4 million against.
With the BrExit a similar number (in the scheme of things) wanted to remain with 16.1 but with a whopping 17.4 wishing to leave.

Interestingly the turnout for the referendum to join the European Communities in 1975 and the BrExit referendum both had a higher turnout than any European Union Parliamentary election. The highest turnout for the EUP elections was in 1994 with 49.4%.

Let’s see what happens over the next 5 years!
