Statistically, trump supporters average about $70k per year (hardly impoverished), and have pretty decent lives, so it's hardly economic. Besides, the country is hardly "impoverished". I remember the BBC investigative report where they interviewed trump supporters all the over the country, and they all said things are " good here", but the rest of the country is "in big trouble". The same answers all over the country.

So, I can't help but think it's more about what they've been led to believe, rather than how it actually is.

Finally it has got into your rather dense cranium " The UK is still a full member of the EU ".,

I'm always a bit concerned that just reading his posts could subject my mobile to... well, something "unsavoury".

Not yet it isn't.

The UK held a non-binding referendum to Remain in, or Leave the EU.
Leave got more votes than Remain did.

The formal process for leaving the EU is called Article 50, which is the subject of an appeal by the government against a ruling that Parliament is the competent authority to decide when Article 50 is triggered.

But Article 50 hasn't been triggered yet, and even the PM said it would likely be the end of March when it is, so we're not leaving yet. And even then, it's only if Parliament decides so.

After that post, the only things being triggered will be TGA and the rest of the special leaver snowflakes.
