Brexit and the Politics of Irrationality

The intrigue of the #BREXIT vote June 23rd took me on a search for blog posts about the vote and views from those that are going to be most impacted by the outcome – whatever it will be.

I found this from blogger Neil Schofield and his blog “Notes from a Broken Society”. Schofield is a former Labour Candidate in Brighton and Hove City Municipal 2015 elections.  Make sure you click the link to read the entire blog post.

“Strip away the sonorous rhetoric of nationhood and bogus history, and you have the neoliberal project at its purest and most explicit… Behind every populist assertion of Britishness stands a smiling Old Etonian with an offshore account.”
