    ... of the intelligence spectrum.

    This is not really in dispute :

    EU referendum: How the results compare to the UK's educated, old and immigrant populations

    Which raises the question: in an increasingly cognitively-demanding world (particularly in a non-manufacturing knowledge/services economy like the UK) who on earth do Brexiters expect to make the country great, given that in general they can't work their way out of a wet paper bag?
    Hard Brexit now!

    You will find that people that make sweeping generalisations are generally to be found at the thick end of almost ANY spectrum.

    They'll panic and hire scooter and darmy as consultants.

    You being on the thick end of the intelligence spectrum, I don't really expect you to understand demographic analysis.
    But thanks for providing anecdotal evidence for my point.

    Is all this discord over Brexit just going to drag on for years and years?

    Certainly seems that way.

    Just wondering if I might just as well feck off abroad. Seriously sick of the whole thing, from both sides.

    Please don't. We like abroad as it is.

    Indeed, for the majority on here, our expectations for your analytical abilities are fairly low.

    And there was really little need for you to remind us that you are on the thick end of the intelligence spectrum.
    Thus far you have provided 33K+ posts to cement that assertion.

    But keep em coming, they lighten the mood.

    .
    Probably.
    Remainers could simply accept the country being ruined by innumerate imbeciles who've destabilized the economy and allowed a Marxist like Corbyn a real chance of being elected due to their misjudgement.
    But allowing that would be traitorous and unpatriotic.
