Brexit: The Uncivil War

Brexit: The Uncivil War – I loved it.

Yes, it was utterly depressing in its portrayal of the cynical manipulation and mobilisation of an uneducated, unengaged subset of our population by a corrupt conspiracy of vested interests.But as a drama, it was riveting.

“So this is it? This is what we have become?” as the mob is released was one of the most tear-jerking lines I’ve ever heard.

The huge underestimation of their opposition by the arrogant and entrenched powers-that-be is a sobering lesson as is the hidden strength of those who can tap directly into populations, by-passing media and politicians alike.

Not only was this good drama, it should be required viewing as a lesson in modern civics.
