    I'm argument dodging? How so? My argument is that you're a salty leftist. And you haven't proved that wrong.


    In fact your constant replying to me is just proving me right. (Protip: Stop posting)

    On a serious note: Few who supported brexit did it on a short-term economical basis. We're in a culture war, this is about Globalism vs Nationalism. Perhaps looking at it from that angle will assist you in understanding.

    I agree a lot of old people voted Remain, and yes educated people did vote remain. But I'd also like to mention a lot of education systems are directly funded and influenced by EU deals so it makes sense that people who have been in those institutions and around particularly left wing professors and teachers would share views similar to their peers. Whereas people outside of that system tend to hold views that their local communities hold.

    I agree. A lot of old people remember what the UK was like before the EU and know what they had to give up to be members.That's not to say a lot of old people are uneducated however, as that would be ridiculous. And a large number of young people are students who were educated through EU funded universities and grew up in environments with left wing professors and teachers so it's only natural that they'd support the system they grew up with. There's an interesting book called "The Intelligence Paradox: Why the Intelligent Choice Isn't Always the Smart One." that looks into this particular subject. I'd recommend reading it at some point.

    I don't necessarily believe that's true. A lot of old people, at least the ones I know anyhow, genuinely believe that pulling us out of the EU will give the youth a blank canvas for them to build upon. You've got to remember that these are the people that actually know what life is like both in and out. And the fact they overwhelmingly voted to leave says a lot in my books.

    I admit, now we're being civil it's enjoyable to discuss the subject.

    Well what do you expect???! This is literally the most important thing right now in international politics and domestic affairs. Brexit far outweighs everything else. Of course we have to talk about it, as much as possible, because there are lots of directions in which we can direct the trajectory of history!!
