Stoke

This should probably be required watching for people confused as to how brexit came about, the most important of whom are the ivory tower dwelling brexiteers in parliament.

For the likes of David Davis, brexit was an ideological vote on restoring virtually meaningless amounts of parliamentary sovereignty. For people in Stoke, it was a much more general vote of no confidence against the government. “The EU” seems to register a long way down on their list of concerns, behind more specific and pressing grievances with their local economy not providing stable and sufficiently paid jobs.

Will Davis’s vision of brexit address their problems? Not a chance. Their best case scenario is that nothing gets worse as a result of leaving the EU. And yet almost weekly we have to endure Davis, Fox or some other highly priviledged elite brexiteer brushing away opposition as being against “the will of the people”.
