    What was his reason for voting leave, do you know?

    Possibly the arrival of cheap as chips flat screen TVs and DAB radios from China. Repair work dried up thanks to those bloody foreigners and their fancy electronic gadgets.

    I've said it before but my old man worked for British Gas for 50 years, 25 of those also as a retained Firefighter, was a GMB rep at BG, staunch Labour supporter and voter, local Labour councillor throughout the 80s, we'd regularly get dragged to the Miner's Welfare when Dennis Skinner was talking.

    He's now full blown gammon, thinks the sun shines out of Farage's arse and couldn't wait to vote leave, thinks Trump is great etc. He's a bright bloke so I don't know what has gone wrong, probably just typical old age Right Wing disease, he's embarrassing to talk/listen to these days. Although he is a bit of a misogynistic racist so there's probably that.

    Well, that's got me foxed. I can't see any correlation between his career, diverse talents nor racist bias or lack of. His age and experience may have been a factor, possibly.Maybe I've missed the fact that radio and TV engineers voted almost unanimously to leave.

    That is really, really funny but haven’t you got anything better to do on this gloomy Sunday in late October? :)

    PS 77.3% of self employed carpet fitters voted to leave, 99% of costermongers wanted to remain while a mere 12% of farriers even bothered to vote. Also, I have no idea whatsoever why Princess Michael of Kent has a man’s name.

    Rachel? Seriously? You missed a huge opportunity with that post.

    Should have signed off as (cathode) Ray.

    I believe there's a significant pro-Leave bias among street urchins, lamplighters and knocker-uppers, as well.

    Not sure if you'll get an answer Stephen. I asked him about why his friends living in Portugal voted leave and the silence was deafening. Ironic really, after he made a comment about remainers going silent after his post that not all leavers are racists. Which I agree with, btw.

    There's a trend emerging, isn't there. Fred seems to be surrounded by people who buck the typical Leave stereotype. Makes you wonder.

    The father in law was undecided until a big central heating job he was doing went wrong. He was in a state of flux until then;-)

    I think I called out big Ray as a gammon troll about two weeks ago. He’s posted nothing since to dissuade me.
