Study reveals mainly stupid people will vote Brexit

Most intellectuals and averagely smart people have been thinking it for a while now, but finally a study has been released confirming ‘mainly stupid’ people will vote for UK to leave the EU.

The study shows that those with low academic attainment, Daily Mail and Sun newspaper readers, Northerners, Monster Energy Drink consumers, and Britain First supporters are most likely to support Brexit.

Conversely, highly intellectual Guardian readers, people living in the South, those with high academic attainment, rugby fans, and people who own a pasta maker are more likely to support Remain.

The study broadly mirrors a similar study carried out by the FT last week that shows those with a highest qualification of GCSE or lower and UKIP supporters are most likely to vote Leave. Although the study stopped short of calling Leave voters ‘stupid’, readers were left in no doubt of the study’s conclusion when social class was also highlighted.

People within the AB, and C1 social class (Higher & intermediate managerial, administrative, professional / supervisory, clerical & junior managerial, administrative, professional occupations) said they were more likely to vote remain, whilst C2 and DE social classes (Semi-skilled & unskilled manual occupations, Unemployed and lowest grade occupations / skilled manual occupations) were more likely to vote Leave.

PR consultant and Events Manager Hugo, 37, from Fulham, said ‘The EU will probably fall apart in 10 years time anyway, but why would anyone sane vote for such uncertainty now? What on Earth do they think will happen to their share portfolio in the short term if we leave? Total bloody idiots.’

On the other side of the argument, Kyle, 27, a scaffolding monkey from Dudley said ‘I can’t believe anyone would vote to stay. The EU are taking all our jobs, telling us what we can and can’t do, making bananas straight, sending over immigrants, taking all our money, and worst of all, sending over immigrants. I’m sick of the health and safety brigade’.

Some voters are still undecided. Sarah, an assistant manager from Swindon said ‘I just don’t know which way to vote. Most of my Facebook friends make a really strong case for Brexit, whilst most of my Twitter friends back the Remain campaign, or at least I think they do? They could be being ironic as they’re really clever. Sometimes I just can’t tell because they’re so smart’.

Another study today confirmed that some voters are confused about what the EU referendum is about with many older voters believing a Leave vote will mean going back in time to 1950.

Pamela, a 66 year old retired receptionist from Canvey Island said ‘I’m definitely voting leave. Britain will be much less crowded if we’re not in the EU. The population will shrink to half the size it is now. Everything will be in black and white again, and children will play with spinning tops and carts made from fruit boxes and pram wheels instead of Nintardos. There won’t be traffic jams anymore, and we’ll be safer from those dangerous immigrants. Also, everyone will have a job again, like they used to in 1950. We need to put the Great back into England’.

Pamela added ‘I don’t know how they’ll fit everyone in the time machine, but going back to 1950 will be much better. It’s really clever.’

Despite the study, prominent Leave campaigner Boris Johnson today gave a rousing speech that is set to change the minds of many staunch Remain voters:

    I suppose when the rich are fed constant lies on there large tvs they will vote remain but those who look into the EU know it’s a corrupt jobs for the boys club.
    I am amazed at how so many people cannot see the EU as 1 big con trick

    This is why the stupid, ignorant, racist old farts, taking away the future of the youth voted leave.

    SOVERIGNTY
    A country’s independent authority and the right to govern itself.

    Tony Benn quote:
    “In the course of my life I have developed five little democratic questions. If one meets a powerful person–Adolf Hitler, Joe Stalin or Bill Gates–ask them five questions:

    1. What power have you got?
    2. Where did you get it from?
    3. In whose interests do you exercise it?
    4. To whom are you accountable?
    5. And how can we get rid of you?

    If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.”

    Winston Churchill quote:
    “We are linked to Europe, but not combined,’ wrote Churchill in 1930. ‘We are interested and associated but not absorbed.”

    Jean-Claude Juncker quotes:
    “When the going gets tough – you have to lie”
    “There can be no democratic choice against European treaties”
    “Democracy? Oh that thing we hate”
    “Prime Ministers must stop listening so much to their voters and instead act as “full time Europeans”, according to Jean-Claude Juncker.

    REFORM
    Reform was requested by Cameron on behalf of the people of the UK as there were concerns of the path it was on. The EU basically said – up yours Britain. The path it is on is to establish a United States of Europe with one currency, one army, to make it easier to control the masses by bureaucrats in Brussels. Now many countries, unhappy with the EU and the path it is on, are also wanting to opt out of the EU.

    IMMIGRATION
    Immigration will not stop. The only desire is to control our borders and implement a system similar to Canada, America and Australia. We do not hate Europeans, we love Europeans with all their various cultures and diversity – the vote was only against an institution that we despise. An institution that is trying to remove that diversity. [Kalergi plan]. The dark side of the open border policy is that open borders and free movement now makes it easier for drug trafficking, people trafficking and arms trafficking.

    There will always be racists, whether we are in the EU or not – we all need to have a no tolerance policy on racism.

    FINANCIAL/JOB SECURITY
    We only have to look at Greece, Italy and Spain’s economy to see how successful the EU really is.

    HOPE OVER FEARS
    Nelson Mandela quote:
    “May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears”

    So give me a break with all the crap that the Biased Broadcasting Corporation and media is spewing out.

    Stumbled across this whilst googling studies on Brexiteers and sub standard IQs and the sad thing is that, despite technically being satire, it’s rather disturbingly accurate. Lol. I know a Brexit monkey here in Guildford- her name’s Bex and she used to tweet as ‘Ashigana’. She voted Brexit because she doesn’t want all the black people coming here. Yano, Europe’s totally Africa and Asia, right? Most locals here voted Remain because most here have an IQ higher than their dogs have. But we’ve still got to have receptionists, post office workers, and housing association tenants, so the occasional Brexiteer walks amongst us. This vote, guys, was why the direct democracy never works- when your gp receptionist who quit school without GCSEs has an equal vote to an inner city barrister who belongs to various human rights charities and volunteers to do reports on countries overseas and their human rights record, then you have a system which does not work. Thick people ranting out on the daily mail comments section on their OnePlus whilst sitting in a greasy spoon spending their handouts/minimum wage earnings should not have the same voting power as more intelligent citizens have. That may sound elitist but the only way to save democracy is to restrict it to those who understand the issues upon which they vote.
