Middle classes (not working class) voted for Brexit, argues Danny Dorling - BBC Newsnight

It is often said that English working class voters in the north of the country tipped the balance in favour of Leave in the EU referendum. But how accurate is that? Oxford academic Danny Dorling argues that it is actually the middle class vote that lead to Brexit. He made this film for Newsnight. Newsnight is the BBC's flagship news and current affairs TV programme - with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.
