I'm actually not convinced by that argument, and I think it underplays the intellect that a majority of Brits can bring to bear when challenged on a complex issue. People do hear the drip, drip bad news feed of religously inspired terror attacks, knife crime, child grooming, forced marriages, etc. Eventually they put two and two together and realise that all isn't rosy in the garden after all.
