Actually I was supporting andrec's point that the referendum was a bit of a slap in the face (my words) for the educated, the managerial etc. BTW, that's not polls, that's research. So you'll have to have that out with andrec.
And also BTW, that isn't sneering at people less well "educated": in fact it was saying that a few pompous Remainers hadn't looked past people's lack of exam results to see real people with good hearts and minds.
I have come to the conclusion that there isn't a good correlation between wisdom and educational qualifications, or even between wisdom and economic success. I have dealt with incredibly thick but well educated people with a good income, and with very bright but poorly educated people. One sure sign of a thick but well educated person is that they will assume they are more intelligent than people with less in the the way of qualifications, or on a lower income. That really is a stupid assumption.
