Reader’s Comment: A university degree does not equate to an education


In response to David Keighley’s BBC Watch: If everyone went to university and smoked pot, the Libs would walk it, Marat wrote:

“Her ammunition now was a new YouGov poll which, she trumpeted, showed that (as she described) ‘outward looking, educated’ liberals were significantly less likely to vote Tory (and especially Ukip) than those with a degree.”

Can we move away from the idea that having a degree is the same thing as having an education, please TCW? A first class honours degree in Feminist Dance Theory may well make one more inclined to vote Remain; it does not, however, signify that one has been educated.
