Re: We all know what happened

If you look at the demographics Brexit was supported by people 50+ largely - this suggests an element of nostalgia for something that is disappearing or is imagined to be disappearing - while this is partly understandable - there is a large element of racism in a portion of that age range across all income classes. (As per undercover reports from my elderly but liberal parents who live in a very affluent area in the North of England which was pro brexit). To deny that this played a significant part in the effectiveness of the leave campaign when the economic case for staying was pretty overwhelming is willful blindness. I'm not saying that all brexit campaigners are racists but its impact was there. Also reading the daily mail for decades doesn't help rational decision making.
