Labour MP Barry Sheerman sparks outrage by saying ‘better educated people’ voted Remain — and branded Brexit voters stupid

BREXIT voters were branded stupid by a Labour backbencher – who said “the better educated people” voted Remain.

His remarks were branded “snobbery” by Tory MP Stuart Andrew.

They came in a TV debate about a letter sent by unis by Tory backbencher Chris Heaton Harris –asking for names of professors teaching courses involving Brexit.

Mr Sheerman tweeted that he was pleased his comments on the link “between Brexit support and lower education attainment has stimulated debate”.

Meanwhile, Brexit talks hit a fresh stalemate as the UK stalls on new discussions.

Our team fears that without a Brussels  shift, “pointless” meetings would kill momentum from last week’s  EU summit and Theresa May’s Florence speech.

The sides are deadlocked on the Brexit bill and if Euro judges get a say on EU  citizens here.

The UK says  a future trade deal must also be  on the table.

A source said: “The issues haven’t changed. There are only so many times we can say the  same thing.”

Brussels has offered two sets of talks before December. UK insiders insist we want the right agenda to “move forward”.

The more educated did critically appraise empty promises and saw through leave campaign rhetoric. Fact & truth. Thanks @BarrySheerman
