there is something he completely missed - the poverty & inequality in the UK - because he lived/lives in a millionaire ruling-class bubble
there is also something that I haven't really seen much comment on that was unpredictable and that I think had a huge influence on UKIP & eurosceptics ability to ram a certain message home; that the exodus from the Syrian conflict was enormous between Sept 2015 & March 2016. The message was that this was the beginning of a flood, that Britain would be overwhelmed.
Fact is, this period was not the beginning of anything, it was the absolute peak of exodus and has dropped hugely since.
No one seemed to recognise that at the time or even now because... ??... political expediency? Politics has stopped playing to facts and is only playing to demographics & feelings. And what's worse is that an idea has solidified in politics that there is a hardcore who don't need to be canvassed - that they are lifelong voters of one stripe - and it is the wavering 'middle' 5% whose fears need to be caressed in order to cross the 'winner takes all' threshold that we seem to have invested in as far as defining what democracy is or at least how it operates structurally
I'm really holding onto the hope right now that, due to the French Presidential election structure having a head-to-head run off as the decider, more people will vote against Le Pen/FN than for her. Otherwise Europe is fucked
