Apologies for just posting the Tweet and running last night!
I found the train of thought of the Tweet quite interesting - although I agree it's pretty patronising in it's tone. It's a line of thinking I hadn't really seen explored too much before and I wondered to what degree there might be some truth in it (the idea of a nostalgic vote), especially given the age profile of those who voted to leave.
The other aspect I thought was quite interesting was - as we see here quite often! - the total failure to find a 'middle ground'. I honestly - truly - haven't heard anything in favour of leaving that has made me go 'Oh, hey - actually I hadn't thought of that, that could be good', or whatever. Is that my fixed mindset (I would have voted Remain), or is there really too big a gap between the two camp's ideologies?
All that said, I see now that David Davis is almost certain Britain will not be Mad Max-style wasteland! Which one would have to say is a positive.
