@srgtroy I haven't said anything personal about you so can we reel-in the sarcasm levels - I'm only presenting facts. If you disagree with them - that's fine...
I'm sorry - I know this is off-topic and I won't comment on this again here - you can start another thread if you like and we can discuss this further. I'd do that myself - but I'm unclear about the mechanism...
Here's the links to the US Defense Intelligence Agencies own documents from 2011 and 2012 showing that the Obama admin knew that weapons were being shipped from Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria in their strategy to overthrow the Assad regime, and knew these rebels were islamic jihadists.
together with 2 separate Pullitzer-prize winning investigative journalists (neither of whom I have particular afinity with their political views, but nevertheless their journalistic resumes are outstanding) reports on the conflict both historically and more recently, and the US role in it - confirming what I said.
Seldom has the United Kingdom looked less united: London and Scotland voted to stay in the EU, Wales and the English shires voted to get out. (Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has already called a fresh vote on secession “highly likely.”) Some 70% of university graduates were in favor of the EU; an equally disproportionate 68% of those who hadn’t finished high school were against it. Londoners and those under age 30 were strongly for Remain; the northern English and those over 60 were strongly for Leave. An astonishing 70% of the skilled working class supported Brexit.
Id just found it interesting that I don't have a European Passport and nobody in Europe other than English cared where I was or where I was going. I understand the borderless advantages to Euro's but surprised it's borderless for everybody not just Europeans.

This is a slightly "artificial" statistic, to be interpreted carefully.
While technically true, it also conceals several significant pieces of information about universities, degrees and education in general, which collectively mean that all it really shows is that younger people are far more in favour of "Remain" than older people. (There are far more young people going to university these days; there are far more institutions now classified as "universities" than ever before; far more post-school educational and vocational qualifications are now classified as "degrees"; and so on.)
It doesn't necessarily imply (as some might at first - understandably but mistakenly - imagine) that "better educated people are more pro-EU".
