Quote of the Day | 0509

being British I am coy saying so, I am an expert in my field.

Yes, that word. The word that Brexiteers have grown to hate. Even if the somewhat fascistic urge to attack experts, academics, intellectuals, judges and civil servants were to miraculously ebb after the moment of departure (and all historical precedent points to the fact that ugly populist policies and the identifying of scapegoats and ‘enemies of the people’ ends in catastrophe), the damage is already being done to our society. Open, outward-looking, progressive societies that celebrate diversity are the ones where cultural exchange happens and where it thrives.
