While I can't claim to have anything more than a general "view from 10,000 feet" [3,048 Metres] understanding of the English issues, the cultural parallel with Trump's election is stunning. The Left immediately blames ignorance, bigotry, and stupidity for the result, thus insulting the majority of English voters. The very idea that views different from their own might have been compelling or superior is not even contemplated. The idea that the English people can do without Rule by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels is simply too radical to be accepted. Fuck the Left, wherever it resides.
