‘With the start of the exit negotiations looming in early 2017, I still reject the notion that those who voted remain should shut up and accept the result. I reject platitudinous nonsense about having to stick together and make this work, chiefly because of the lies and misinformation of the leaders of the Leave campaign, and because of the nasty xenophobia that was an undertone in the campaign and which has become more pronounced in the aftermath of the vote. I know that not everyone who voted Leave is a xenophobe, and while I have no way of knowing what percentage of the Leave vote was made up of xenophobes, racists, nativists and latter-day imperialists, it is a safe bet that the xenophobes, racists and latter-day imperialists voted overwhelmingly for Leave.’ Part II from Dr Brian Alleyne in Media Diversified.
