Was over visiting the mother in law last night. She was watching those semi-famous people in the jungle.
They had a map of the world on the ground and were asked to measure the distance from the UK, to sydney australia. (marked with an X on australia). It took two grown men (who are in Australia) 20 minutes to work out where it was (through a process of elimination - they were told when they guessed it wrong) . I was literally blown away by the ignorance. One of them (a boxer) had the cheek to say he had a good sense of geography because he travels a lot.
If they are a reflection of the average joe in the street, then i doubt most people give two flying ■■■■ about the catalanas or Ireland or the end of their street by the looks of it.
and these people were allowed vote on the UKs membership of the EU.
