In his blog post, Jon Martindale writes

On top of being useful, it would be rather poetic to see analytics help alleviate some of the associated problems with Brexit, since it was partly blamed for the leave vote being successful in the first place earlier this year.

 

Analytics "partly" to blame? Why stop there? Blame digitized data processing, electronic communications, and algebra. And that's just got the list started ...

I don't wonder- if people had been well informed the vote would have likely gone a different way.The obvious issue that people are now concerned with haven't changed- just people's knowledge of them has changed. It will be a messy problem to deal with.

That's always the question with analytics, isn't it?  What data set are you using and how are you crafting the story?  will the story change now that more resources are being aimed at the effects of Brexit or will the emotions of the voters keep driving the story?  Can those emotions change the data?

It's interesting to see the article you linked up to shows the two leading exit campaigns are funded  and started by private interests.   It makes me wonder how well informed the average citizen in the U.K. actually was.

"What's most impressive about these predictions though, is that by more measures, much of the UK's economy will be negatively affected by Brexit." 

What are the chances that fears of economic down turn are a major driver of the investment in analytics?  I could see a lot of areas scrambling to see how Brexit will affect them from businesses of all sized to governments of all sizes.  There are going to be a lot of data models assembled to try and predict the effects of the split and the complexity is going to be a major hurdle.
