    The way the post is phrased is off putting. It's making an assumption that doesn't represent all leave voters.

    I know some who aren't anti-immigration, and actually liked the existing relationship we had with the EU but they were worried that a vote to stay would be endorsing closer ties and adoption of the Euro and all the fiscal issues that come with it.

    But your study is focussing on the foamy mouthed xenophobe community so is going to be biased, adding no value other than to foster ever greater division.
    Didn't quite get that from her post , I may have missed the nuance. Though it is a general fear I believe any leave voter has.

    We ostensibly voted for independence from foreign control, most liberals would support that if we were in Eastern Europe or Africa but are staunchly against the UK voting out of an organisation intent on becoming a Political & military power with us as a subordinate.

    The fact that the status quo was overturned is actually quite impressive. Machiavelli would have been proud! Look at the strategy of the 1975 referendum.

    You might ask why an organisation initially presented as a trading block since 1973 didn't have preferential trading agreements with the largest economies before we decided to Brexit.

    You might ask why they were denying they wished to be a political and military force before the referendum.

    Migration is an issue, if you search slough Polski Sklep you will be surprised how many have opened since 2004. If I see a well turned out, pretty, thin blonde lady in the high street I am surprised if she doesn't have an eastern European accent. We do have a Polish Club but that was from the war most are pretty old now.

    Individually its fine but the sheer numbers have meant Slough have been forced to build 3 new schools in the last decade despite a declining native birth rate (most of the schools were filled with Sikhs and Muslims whose parents came over in the 60s - 80s until recently). We are millions of houses short but our tax take is down.

    Most of the advertising reported to focus on that. I don't have anything other than a technical presence on Facebook or twitter because they are a pain so can't really express a view on that.

        Sorry this is the way you have interpreted it - I'll work on the wording to make sure I'm not misunderstood. Actually, from my research already I've found that anyone with a social media account is being tracked and influenced in many ways, and so this is by no means assuming anyone's IQ has anything to do with it. My aim with this research is to simply understand why certain messaging was effective: there must have been certain reasons why, for example, messaging against animal cruelty from the VoteLeave campaign was effective in swaying some people's opinions. Again, many different adverts were deployed, from immigration to sovereignty, and so I am by no means targeting people who hold particular views about immigration alone. Hope this helps!

          I think supporting Brexit is a hate crime, and we should be able to report them to the police to face justice.

            If you're going to do a 'FTFY', at least make your sentence coherent. Don't just bash keys angrily and hope some words come out.

                  The adverts were really, really tulip as well....

                  Vote Leave's targeted Brexit ads released by Facebook - BBC News

                  Done by a fashion degree drop out with no background in digital media or marketing. Half of them look to me to break the 20% text rule which would result in restricted reach.

                  But just as I though they were going to lose, this fanny comes along...

                    Good luck with that, you already have one that is barely at room temperature figures.

                      I was thinking can his IQ go negative?
