Important new analysis of Leave vote based on real votes in real ballot boxes & not polls 1/4 link
  • Gary Rae (gary_rae)

    bbcnickrobinson More evidence that referendums are not the way to run a country.

  • Willywombat7 (willywombat7)

    gary_rae bbcnickrobinson especially if things don't go your way

  • Gary Rae (gary_rae)

    willywombat7 bbcnickrobinson A simple lie won, over a complicated truth.

  • Donny (DonnyMurray)

    gary_rae willywombat7 bbcnickrobinson both sides lied! and if you can't admit your side didn't then....

  • Gary Rae (gary_rae)

    DonnyMurray I never claimed that.

  • Donny (DonnyMurray)

    gary_rae you implied it

  • mark walker (ChickenmanuMark)

    bbcnickrobinson BBCNews Time you remoaners got on with your lives and accepted the result instead of playing the blame game

  • The Red Queen (JennieMacfie)

    ChickenmanuMark bbcnickrobinson BBCNews In Scotland, as the article makes clear, all 32 constituencies voted to Remain.

  • mark walker (ChickenmanuMark)

    JennieMacfie bbcnickrobinson BBCNews The country voted leave accept it. You had your referendum and bottled it so stop whinging

  • Donny (DonnyMurray)

    ChickenmanuMark JennieMacfie bbcnickrobinson BBCNews oi, I voted No in Scotland, so we didn't bottle it imo.

  • Robert Feal-Martinez (Robfm)

    bbcnickrobinson So Nick does the analysis simply confirm us old and stupid voters voted Brexit. Something the media said. Of course rubbish

  • The Red Queen (JennieMacfie)

    Robfm bbcnickrobinson The data shows that on the whole, those who are less educated and to a lesser extent older voted Leave. Not rubbish.

  • Rolo Tamasi (Rolo_Tamasi)

    bbcnickrobinson BBCNews it's utterly unimportant. You lost Nick.

  • Tony (TonyTimes2)

    bbcnickrobinson How can they be based on real votes in ballot boxes if votes are anonymous? Still conjecture, surely?

  • Ryan Turner (RyanTurnerr)

    TonyTimes2 How about you try reading the article? That's the right thing to do before commenting on its contents, surely? Surely?

  • Tony (TonyTimes2)

    RyanTurnerr Fair point

  • The Red Queen (JennieMacfie)

    TonyTimes2 RyanTurnerr As in general elections, votes counted per constituency. Astonishing how little people know about electoral system.

  • Tony (TonyTimes2)

    JennieMacfie RyanTurnerr I know plenty about the electoral system thank you very much, just questioning the validity of guess work when

  • Tony (TonyTimes2)

    JennieMacfie RyanTurnerr surely polls are also constituency specific

  • Ryan Turner (RyanTurnerr)

    TonyTimes2 JennieMacfie Sorry Tony but this article doesn't use polls. It's an analysis of local authority data obtained by FOI request

  • Tony (TonyTimes2)

    RyanTurnerr JennieMacfie That's why I said "also" ie as well as this local authority data

  • Richas (RichasAA)

    cjsnowdon oh please Chris you can't do alt right trolling well. Old fogies facing future shock mess up is more like it.

  • RichasAA Trolling europhiles is not alt right

  • Richas (RichasAA)

    cjsnowdon you still can't do the whole mindless rage thang.

  • RichasAA That sounds like a wager to me

  • Richas (RichasAA)

    cjsnowdon maybe but to take it you have to stop telling Europhiles to shut up if you want to troll them too.

  • Richard Vadon (richardvadon)

    cjsnowdon That is one way of putting it. Do you see Trump supporters in that way?

  • richardvadon link… #banter

  • Mark Butcher (markbutcher9)

    cjsnowdon also the numbers show dumb people voted leave.

  • Julia Carr (JuliaH14pac)

    cjsnowdon BBCNews Is that the sovereignty that the White Paper admits we have never lost?

  • 48andBeyond (48andBeyond)

    cjsnowdon BBCNews the dumbest comment I've seen in a long while lol

  • cjsnowdon Life experience defeating indoctrination & propaganda

  • Tim Turner (tim2040)

    ObliviousReaper cjsnowdon Xenophobia and inability to cope with change beat everything else

  • tim2040 cjsnowdon really? yet we're looking at deals with a wider non-Eurocentric world; not looking backwards to Europe

  • Tim Turner (tim2040)

    ObliviousReaper cjsnowdon We're turning our backs on an enormous market to beg protectionists for favours.

  • tim2040 cjsnowdon so Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, etc are protectionists? - The EU is amongst the most protectionist blocks

  • Tim Turner (tim2040)

    ObliviousReaper cjsnowdon We'll have to negotiate deals with all these countries, with them knowing we're weak and desperate for deals.

  • tim2040 cjsnowdon if those who cannot accept reality stopped trying to overturn referendum we'd have a much stronger negotiating position

  • Tim Turner (tim2040)

    ObliviousReaper cjsnowdon Our economy is what it is *inside EU*. You can't pretend it will be same outside. May is grovelling to Trump.

Education, age and ethnicity key factors in Brexit vote, new research shows link
  • Leo Murray (crisortunity)

    IanDunt ignorant old white people are just the best

  • Stagger Lee (Mr_Plastique)

    crisortunity IanDunt perhaps only graduates can vote in the future?

  • Leo Murray (crisortunity)

    Mr_Plastique IanDunt perhaps we try harder to find ways to ensure all people are better informed

  • Stagger Lee (Mr_Plastique)

    crisortunity IanDunt with Media outlets like the Mail peddling myths it's going to be an uphill battle

  • Cyber-cottage.co.uk (cyberco)

    iandunt As someone who was at the polling station that day, this comes as no surprise what so ever.

  • Annie Jones (annie_peg)

    cyberco IanDunt Or to anyone reading Brexiter comments on Twitter...

  • marko (mhkhglo)

    IanDunt BBCNews pretty much confirms every preconceived impression of the leave/remain demography. Should never have went to a referendum.

  • Saywhatuwant (saywhatuwantok)

    IanDunt BBCNews when you mix with immigrants, or humans as I like to call them, you don't fear them

  • J (CifrLXXXVI)

    IanDunt Education is everything. Ignorance is bliss...

  • IanDunt BBCNews Move over, Comical Ali.....Comical Dom has seized your crown.... link

Remember, it's wrong to call Leave voters 'uneducated' and 'elderly', unless you mean 'statistically'. link
  • stephencgrant I detect a tongue in cheek but we shouldn't use either as epithet. Nobody seems concerned that poor & elderly feel hopeless

  • Stephen Grant (stephencgrant)

    deasy_rascal tongue very much in cheek. However I'm still dismayed 'feeling hopeless' considered fair motive for self-defeating decision.

  • stephencgrant not a fair motive, something daft that desperate people wd do. I'd be as concerned about inequality as Brexit, were I British

  • Stephen Grant (stephencgrant)

    deasy_rascal for certain. Inequality got us here - anger at marginalisation, manifested as hate.

  • stephencgrant BBCNews all that education and they still chose the wrong answer?

  • Stephen Grant (stephencgrant)

    jamesbutteryQP BBCNews ha! We'll see what the right answer was in 2/5/10/20 years...

  • stephencgrant I would like to know the statistics for voters in relation to how comfortable they are financially.

  • Stephen Grant (stephencgrant)

    DanielC71418776 not something the electoral commission has access to, unlike age/race/health/education demographics

  • stephencgrant I appreciate that but I believe it would be a very interesting stat if it existed. Thanks for the reply.

  • Rob Mortlock (Rob_Mortlock)

    stephencgrant joeearley so only young graduates should be allowed to vote?
