The fact you think that anyone could be impressed by that word, or would use that word to impress, says a lot.

Why did you vote to stay in the EU, by the way?

It's a pretty stupid to conflate intelligence and educational attainment. The two are undoubtedly linked but the reason why people with more qualifications tend to have voted to remain is simply because younger people are better-qualified than older people (over 50% of 18 yo now go to university), and their idealism was a large part of their reasoning for voting to stay in.

I agree with that. Also, at risk of sounding an old fart, a degree this days isn't what it was. I know loads of dopey gits with degrees and clever gits without degrees
Similarly I don't think IQ has anything to do with intelligence

You make a good point that people are more likely to go to university than before.

Look up idealism in a dictionary in 20 years and you'll see a picture of a kipper waving a Union Flag.

I think John Cleese wrote an episode of Fawlty Towers called the Kipper and the Corpse which seems rather apt.

They're keeping it for when the economy is carried out in a laundry basket. At least The Major will be able to say what he wants again.

Nah. A bunch of pro-EU halfwits waving the meaningless 12 star 'flag', whilst not having a proper reason between them for why they voted leave, and whilst backing the organisation that represents the capitalists they profess to hate.

I know this is meant to be humourous but when has anyone ever said the EU prevents them from saying what they want?

Your interest in me is touching, though sad. It's like I give you a reason to exist, like all the Lefties who buy the Daily mail to be offended and call it 'funny' names like 'Daily Fail', etc. Like you. 

You remind me of Manuel: hapless and dim.

In Derek's case, could you argue with that?
