@Mike Perhaps you should take the time to read the paper Chris is referencing in your trilogy of hysterical rants before commenting. http://lagv2015.idep-fr.org/submission/index.php/LAGV2015/LAGV14/paper/viewFile/1634/368

@Aragon Really? People in London doing "best"? Let's ask the young teachers or nurses who can't afford housing there but who are overwhelmingly in favour of immigration. And a big "Nope" to the rest of your piece. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jun/24/voting-details-show-immigration-fears-were-paradoxical-but-decisive

@aragon Ah good, I wondered how long it would be before the Appeal to Nature fallacy reared its head. Social Darwinism anybody? How do you reconcile the fact that the areas of the UK that saw the most EU immigration were the areas that were the most tolerant of it, and vice versa? Lastly your wisdom of crowds reference is a bit silly. What we saw in the referendum was crowd psychology rather than diverse collections of independently deciding individuals, because the media drip fed them their views over 20 years or more.Crowds can be made to behave stupidly too.
