Surrey dripping with money voted to leave-Why?

Putzifly

Why Surrey? As a resident their once for over thirty years I'll hazard a guess! The uber-rich can afford to live anywhere, or go anywhere, in the EU or not, so they can afford to stick two fingers up if they so please. Your average middle class family there would probably have two working parents (as my wife and I were), a house worth upwards from half a million or so, and possibly kids in private education, and of course, probably vote Tory! Irrespective of the migration issue, the people we know there were fed up to the back teeth with being lied to, year in, year out, by both our major political parties, and the EU, and like the rest of the population at large, decided to ignore their political party of choice and vote leave. If the uber-rich and the middle classes there outnumbered the other voters at the election stations, there's one possible reason.
All right South Buck

All right, how about South Buckinghamshire with its Chalfonts, Gerrards Crosses and well-heeled cognoscenti?
They voted to leave. The explanation escapes me.

Because they're all old as fuck.

Perhaps in Surrey it is the opposite of my previous post? Maybe the middle classes were outvoted by the large conurbations?

Chalfont St. Giles.

Price = Two and half million.
Sold.
I don't think they shop at Lidl.



If this is middle class, then I'm well bottom of the food chain.

You still don't get it do you, the rich are in a minority so even if they all voted in, there would be more of the great unwashed voting out.

I blame the Chartists for stirring things up on behalf of the common erk. You mark my words, it'll be women wanting the vote next and then where will we be?? A female PM? Nah, never happen.

Obliged to you for explaining.
The wife and I are just off to The Public Baths for the Labouring Classes.
