Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Looking at the voting patterns of this referendum show just how screwed up and divided the country has become.

London + Scotland vote remain. Everywhere else votes leave.
Higher educated people vote remain, working classes vote leave.
Young people vote remain, older people vote leave.

Surely this has only come about after years upon years of political disengagement.
I think voting patterns have always followed demographic, geographic and social lines. I don't think this is new. Especially not in the UK which even though we often struggle to admit it, is still much more of a class defined society than most of our European neighbours.
