    @LM - the thread is about stupid. A graph alleging to show the intelligence of British youth is somewhat cogent. As far as bias goes, I allowed that Greg's interpretation of the graph may be horse feathers, and others may consider that it actually does show that British youth are stupid.

    But you're such a refined lady, I couldn't do less than forgive you.

    The smug metropolitan elite are just as stupid but in different ways, not the least of which is being so arrogantly convinced of their rectitude and virtue they forget they are in a small minority, and most people of necessity think very differently and more practically.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
