Well, a set-back for the far right in Italy anyway.

Whose running things anyway?

Any interesting dissection of the truth behind the politics in the USA by a renowned Australian political journalist ..It fits with just about everything I have said and posted on how the Brexit 'thing' came about and why...*see the middle paragraph* about the USA ' s Empirical ambition to get its allies ' On board and malleable ' which fits with getting the UK out of the EU. It also explains the deep frustrations felt in recent years about, the non punishment of the perpetrators of the Financial Crisis.( whilst everyone else suffered ) The seeming inability to remove Trump from office..even the surprising results of elections and referendums. It's not a conspiracy theory . It's fact, and we should take note of what we can actually do about it. I have put it here because the what happens in the USA affects the world .The rise of populism can be directly traced back to 9/11 and the following financial crisis

I've traveled around the world a lot over the last few years and the only people I've encountered who have claimed Brexit was caused by "fear of foreigners" () have been British and of the Remainiac persuasion.

I did not write the report I took the theme from. By the way, tell me where the same expertise is, is Europe.

Clearly they are also xenophobes and poorly educated and old and part of the 37% who were wrong in the advisory poll.
