    It's really difficult to measure intelligence. The main arguments for leave or remain revolve around the labour market, healthcare and education. Both leave and remain voters can put forwards convincing ideas for either. People like to blame others when things aren't going well for them e.g. I can't get a job because another person can fill the position from another EU country. I think this type of thinking is flawed because many of the positions in the healthcare sector, private sector and education sector would be unfilled with a loss of quality of service. I believe people are trying to find a solution to economic problems through BREXIT when in fact we need good leaders and managers to resolve issues, find solutions and make things run smoothly.Take the NHS for example. There is just so much wastage and bad decision making with a lot of doctors providing inadequate healthcare information. One simple improvement could be automated text messaging to a patient database.

    Yeh, well, according to the statistics, areas with higher incomes also voted to Remain.

    So....my guess is that their degrees don't come from Tanzania

    Us working and even lower middle class people are fed up of being told what to do, how we're stupid and uneducated. Whilst you're sitting drinking coffee and eating artisan bread and reading the Guardian, we see nothing of benefit from the EU.

    It feels like being stuck on an island where just over half the population are intent on ****ing everything up, like a heroic version of the hunger games.

    I seriously don't understand why anyone would upvote, OP. Jesus Christ, what utter shite.

    The statistic is that people with higher education are more likely to vote in. If you look at the way people voted, you can see a clear difference in education levels between leave and remain voters. You made the inference that higher education equates to intelligence; it'd be wonderful if in fact we define what intelligence is, first of all. Evidently, most people DO equate intelligence with a degree because it takes a certain amount of intelligence to pass exams (albeit, probably not at London Metropolitan et al), so it's not a stretch to say that most people with higher education are in general more intelligent than those without degrees.

    The example of 'James' and 'Kerry' is contrived and ****ing fallacious beyond all belief. Even then, I'd argue that 'Kerry' is at least honest and is aware of ACTUAL consequences of leaving the EU. 'James' voted because he is inadequate and doesn't understand that Turkey joining the EU requires the unanimous agreement of all member states.

    Just because people have a formal education, it does not mean they have an independent mind, or an anti-establishment, anti-authoritarian or anti-consensus view, when those views represent very healthy instincts. This is what democracy is all about, and why it is the greatest system known to man, something that pompous, conceited intellectually superior remainers do not have the humility or sense to understand. It also does not mean they are any less manipulated by forces more powerful than themselves.

    Oh, that's easy. You're good at three specific things but dumb in general.
