Since the EU referendum we’ve been hearing a lot of generalisations about voting patterns. If the general consensus was to be believed, all major metropolitan areas and minority ethnic groups would have voted to Remain. But new data by the BBC proves otherwise. For this episode of the podcast, Jen and Tim talk to George Greenwood, a freedom of information researcher for the BBC who worked on the report, to find out about the quirky outliers revealed by this localised breakdown of votes and what they say about how and why people voted in the referendum.
