“..Elites sold Britain down the river in so many ways: why wouldn’t Britons give them a kick in the bollocks?
They sold them down the river by failing to regulate banks and rating agencies before the GFC; by posing as saviours of the world’s climate using taxpayers’ money; by posing as saviours of the world’s poor using taxpayers’ money; by refusing to control borders; and, by selling out the finest system of law in the world.
