Brexit was the same kind of vote, North versus South, why? The very same reasons Mr Trump got in, neglect and run down of a once prosperous industrial area with nothing to replace its loss.
See original post
Brexit was far from being a North versus South vote. This from the BBC News site "Seven of the 10 areas with the highest share of the vote for Remain were in London, including Lambeth, Hackney and Haringey, all of which polled over 75% to stay in the European Union."
It would be far more accurate to say it was London versus the rest of England and Wales. The breakdown by region shows that London was the only one with a majority in favour of remaining in the EU.
Although there are certain reasons in common for the two results, it's over simplistic to claim that both happened for the same reasons. Many who voted for Brexit did so because they are sick of unelected officials in Brussels dictating UK law. They wanted the UK to have full control over what happens in these islands.
