BBC Radio 4 - The Briefing Room, Why Did People Vote Leave?
It was about those Not in Employment, Education or Training:
Futures Forum: Brexit: and providing good quality jobs
It was about communities:
Futures Forum: Brexit: and looking beyond revolt: "If we’ve learned one thing in the last week, it is that communities – not Westminster - must agree what works for them."
And it was about 'elites':
Futures Forum: Brexit: and democracy: "Ordinary voters never took much interest. Perhaps they didn’t care whether they were ruled by a faraway elite in Brussels or ditto in Westminster."
One issue on which debate has foundered has been the 'education gap' - although it is not as clear-cut as first thought and we have to be very wary of sterotyping, as 'the long read' in yesterday's Guardian suggests:

Futures Forum: Brexit: and Exeter University
Futures Forum: Brexit: and Exeter University: and "the huge number of overseas students which makes it one of the leading universities in the country, if not in the world."
As is the science community:
Futures Forum: Brexit: and biotechnology
Futures Forum: Brexit: and ensuring impartial funding for scientific research
