A long time ago I asked The Guardian app makers if they could disable all ad code and trackers for subscribers. They now have a screen in their app to turn trackers off. More apps should do this. #privacy
To cut the deficit they’ll cut our throats,
To balance the budgets they will break our bones,
For their own benefit they’ll crush our hope,
Why don’t they just gas the polling chambers as we line up to vote.

And that was the issue with the initial vote; the public don't really understand the magnitude of the decision they are making.
