It was commonly (and accurately) reported that university towns more likely voted Remain than towns. Of course however Peterborough has a campus of the Anglia Ruskin University in the city.
People who can move around in jobs (especially abroad) were bound to be more pro-EU and many lecturers or students would have been from Leave voting areas originally. But if you're not likely to or do not wish to move abroad then the benefits of the EU mean less to you. EU immigration may even have affected you adversely.
And the 'less educated' label is something to be wary of. Less educated does not mean people are not bright and clever or innovative in their jobs in a way an academic classicist could never hope to achieve. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.thewee ... main%3famp
The debate about immigration was and remains flawed. And one sided.
The UK Govt had and has powers to limit immigration. We were not Schengen members.
But successive Home Secretaries did nothing, mostly because it benefitted the growth based home economy with cheap wages etc.
Still some of those immigrants will leave now.
And the meat on the plate will still have to be slaughtered and butchered and the Brussels Sprouts picked in a biting East wind by someone I guess.
And I suspect UK born labour may want more money to tempt them into such hard and unpleasant work, so expect some hefty inflation as a follow on.
Pounds right down again too 'cos of the breaking of International Law row, so that's inflationary too.
If you haven't noticed it you don't live in the UK!
The benefits membership extended to all of us. One did not need to travel for work or play to enjoy them.
Although their were significant plusses there for travellers for sure. Reciprocal E111 healthcare to name but one. (before you ask I have never needed it, except for a sting in the eye once whilst cycling and I was glad of a doctor to see it.)
But as is so often the case, you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.
And no-one ever claimed it was perfect.
Still you got your "parcel of rogues" and liars and I expect you're happy about that?
For any means now justifies the cause?
