BBC: Local voting figures shed new light on EU referendum

[…] local results were strongly associated with the educational attainment of voters - populations with lower qualifications were significantly more likely to vote Leave. […] The level of education had a higher correlation with the voting pattern than any other major demographic measure from the census.

Call me a Liberal Elitist, but it seems to me that maybe we should be treating education as a higher priority. Then maybe, just maybe, in the long-run, the British public might stop making such monumentally stupid decisions.

  1. OK, you're a liberal elitist: me too - although of course David Cameron is well educated but was still stupid enough to gamble his political career and the country's economic wellbeing on a referendum that he had no need to call in the first place.
