The UK is holding its snap election tomorrow.
British voters casting their ballots on Thursday are unanimous in one thing – they’re all angry.
Across the board – whether Conservative (Con) remainers, Conservative leavers or Brexiteers, Labour (Lab) remainers, Labour leavers or Liberal Democrats (Lib Dem) who are generally pro-Remain – there is a consensus among the electorate surveyed (see chart below) that elites and members of the political establishment consider British voters to be bodoh.

The opinion poll results above are of a final round of interviews conducted Dec 5-9 by pollster Lord Ashcroft.

The ‘Angry’-they-regard-us-as-stoopid answer topped five multiple choice replies to the question: “When you hear parties make spending promises that you think are unrealistic, [what] is usually your reaction?”
Helen’s side note: I’m mildly surprised that so many Dapster suckers are still clinging to the delusion that their sainted politicians can walk on water.
