I am appalled by the insulting commentary, I am currently listening to, about people who chose to vote to leave, implying that they are uneducated, had not thought the issues through thoroughly and were using the referendum as a way to express dissatisfaction about issues other than the European union. I was absolutely disgusted hearing David Dimbleby’s comments in this vein and feel totally insulted by this extremely biased and frankly rude reporting.
As I type this, he is again saying that educated people vote remain and uneducated people vote leave and I cannot express enough how insulting this is to the electorate. I am fuming listening to this!
How dare he make the assumption that I, amongst many others, am uneducated and too stupid to understand the issues involved in the debate, simply because I chose to make a vote that he and more widely the BBC, believe is wrong.
I was also frankly stunned by his assertion that, since the country had a referendum in 1975, about remaining in the EC, that we had no need for another one. Does he realise exactly how long ago that was and how many of today’s voters were either children or not even born at that point, never mind the fact that the EC as an organisation was far from the same as the current EC. In addition, our country’s relationship with the EC was far removed from the one we currently have with the EU.
