Like the pub bore for whom everything comes down to race, some Remainers just cannot accept Brexit.
In Monday's i, Ian Birrell had a one page review of the book Hillbilly Elegy by J D Vance, a best selling examination of small town, white America. Birrell nearly makes it to the end without complaining about the referendum result, but in the penultimate column comes this little beauty:
"There are valuable lessons at this time of rising resentment. In Vance's book one acquaintance quits work from a dislike of waking early, then goes on social media to attack the "Obama economy" for his misfortune. Similar blame games lie behind Brexit."
Birrell comes across as a nineteenth century Lord complaining about the idle peasants on his estate. Only its actually worse than that - on an issue which meant everything to him, the peasants have not only revolted, but hit his social group where it hurts most - at the ballot box.
They will never forgive us......
