Wrong. This myth about Brexit being down to the white working class. In fact most leave voters were middle class southerners. Shire county Tories. The generation whose housing and pension windfalls made them wealthy.
People employed in administrative and professional roles were more likely to vote leave than manual workers.
Many of Britain’s poorest ethnic minorities overwhelmingly voted remain.
Millions and millions of working people voted against Brexit and millions and millions of upper middle class people wanted it.
And the Brexit hard - line elite who push this crap about the revolt of the white working class are far from poor. Farage the Dulwich college stockbroker and Rees-Mogg and Johnson Etonians.
