  1. More like the denouement than a renaissance I fear. She is not exactly a Leonardo...
  2. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/24/eu-referendum-how-the-results-compare-to-the-uks-educated-old-an/ This is what the Telegraph stated on the issue. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_distribution And this explains a Gaussian or Normal distribution There are outliers of course. I am 63 and voted remain. However the correlations are real. https://www.mathsisfun.com/data/correlation.html Remember, correlation is NOT causation! I have no desire to insult or annoy anyone. However the facts are there. I am not baiting or trolling but I would like the truth to be understood. It's important. Jacob Rees Mogg is a Brexiter. He is well educated. He is an outlier. OK now? If not, sorry but I give up. BTW Poisson distribution was a witticism for the hard of hearing.
  3. Are you getting at we atheists?

    I have sympathy with that point of view This is a BIG DEAL How can anyone involved take a vacation at this time. It's obscene at the risk of sounding like a Torygraph reader!
  8. Do you have children? Children get older Someone of 15 is a child
  9. Statistical not empirical or stoichiometric
  10. Nice try! Trouble is I do read widely AND, I do empathise with the disadvantaged and their desire to blame anything or anyone their chosen demagogue chooses. I get it. BUT, the EU is the wrong target Sure, the EU is very far from perfect, but it's not the root of the problems you face. For that, one should look closer to home. We are a rich country and look at us. Embarrassing. Leaving the EU will not fix your problems. I promise. As for my intelligence, who am I to comment?
  11. Wherever one goes in the world, if there's a beer fuelled brawl, Brits will be in the thick of it. I have travelled and lived in many parts of the world and sadly I speak the truth. Go to any German town on an evening and witness beers and wine being consumed in prodigious quantities. No unpleasantness no police. It's embarrassing actually. Fix it by putting up the prices....
  12. Statistical analysis demonstrated a direct correlation between level of education attained and voting remain. For those statistically challenged here is a Poisson distribution
  13. Plato (Republic, Book VI) argues that democracy is inferior to various forms of monarchy, aristocracy and even oligarchy on the grounds that democracy tends to undermine the expertise necessary to properly governed societies. In a democracy, he argues, those who are expert at winning elections and nothing else will eventually dominate democratic politics. Democracy tends to emphasize this expertise at the expense of the expertise that is necessary to properly governed societies. The reason for this is that most people do not have the kinds of talents that enable them to think well about the difficult issues that politics involves. But in order to win office or get a piece of legislation passed, politicians must appeal to these people's sense of what is right or not right. Hence, the state will be guided by very poorly worked out ideas that experts in manipulation and mass appeal use to help themselves win office.
  14. No, losers tended to vote leave,
