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

This report, specifically the sentence in bold below, was mentioned on the news this morning. It seems to have been published last year.

British Social Attitudes 34

"Our analysis suggests that the idea that the referendum was a lightning rod for a rising ‘anti-politics’ tide is wide of the mark. People’s level of trust in government at most played only a minor role in influencing how they voted. Instead, the result reflected the concerns of older, more ‘authoritarian’ or social conservative voters who were particularly worried about immigration. Any suggestion that immigration was not at the heart of this vote runs counter to what we have found."
