New research provides evidence that British citizens who agreed that immigrants threaten their values and way of life were more likely to have voted for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, regardless of their age, gender or education. People who just thought it was great to be British or just valued their British identity were not more likely to reject immigrants or vote for Brexit.
