If Brits were 3% less stupid there would be no Brexit.

Brits have nothing to do with it. A small group of people decide such things not the nation, lol. 

As a president once put it, if voting could change anything, it would be illegal. 

Politics is a trillion dollar business, did you really think that they will let everyone and their mommy have a say in such matters?

Strange that, because it would seem the people who are apparently more intelligent don't understand the word democracy

Even more intelligent people would realise that the point you raise about democratic principles is completely different and unrelated to the issue discussed in the OP.

What is democracy if the people base their vote on the uneducated assumptions from populist politicians.

Most of the world's population understand what democracy might be, as it's not really practiced anywhere - even among those highly civilised cultures that have been conditioned to believe that they are [democratic].

As this is related to the UK, it does not belong in the General forum, moving to the Home Country Forum.

It could work like this.

 

Those in Northern towns in working class jobs feel the brunt of freedom of movement as suppressed job opportunities and wages, therefore they vote Leave.  A greater percentage of those affected have no tertiary education.

 

In that case the effect in NOT a CAUSATIVE one but a simple ASSOCIATION......

 

If they had more education, they would probably have jobs that weren't threatened by low wage immigrants.  Making it a causal relationship.

So, on the same grounds, you are in favour of Scottish secession?

And why should the Shetlands stay with Scotland?

Well even more reason for doing away with Public and Grammar schools by the example of your post.  They do not even teach you how to spell correctly, the correct use of capitalisation,  nor being grammatically correct. So perhaps the UK,  now having such poor standards of education, may be another reason for the Brexit "yes" vote ?
