The making of Brexitland
Two political scientists in Manchester say the forces that won the referendum - and now dominate our discourse - had been building for decades
Dear Millers — today’s is an evening newsletter because we’re just catching up after the bank holiday. We hope you had a lovely weekend.
Today’s story is about Robert Ford, a professor at the University of Manchester and one of the country’s leading political scientists. We spoke to him about his new book Brexitland and how the dividing lines that became apparent during the EU referendum are dominating national politics to this day.
Join in: For those of you who are on Facebook, we have a little members’ discussion group called Millers Talk which you can join here. It’s mostly Dani and I bouncing ideas off members every few days and settling disputes between us about whether you ‘stanch’ or ‘staunch’ the bleeding, but if you fancy that kind of thing, please do join us.
