About Brexit

A theory, prompted by spending too much time reading the Daily Telegraph: 

The great disaster of the 2016 referendum, for supporters of Brexit, is that they won. As a result, they lost the main focus for their resentment, their blustering indignation, their sense of victimhood. They need something else to give their lives some fragment of meaning.

And that’s how we got ourselves a culture war.
