It is also very strange. There is in the end only one pot of money. He only gets support from Europe because we (and a few others) pay in more in general than we get out.
A somewhat over-simplistic view I suspect, and it is not all just about money: there are a great many joint European Scientific collaborations that will be at risk if we leave the EU... though of course that might just be scaremongering by the experts...
But this is digressing from the point we can agree that both of these people's reasons for voting were equally valid on a personal level, if not on a national one, but what about the banana lady, who almost certainly represents a good many people.
Can anybody make the case that her reasons for voting to leave were as valid as the Professor's vote to remain?
