But you need to qualify Gooner, which elité you are talking about. Since the financial establishment yes voted Remain, but the industrial elité voted Brexit.gooner said:But what Vincent Browne said in the article got lost in the debate among Farage's nonsense and the topic of discussion that should have been discussed more was marginalised to a degree during the campaign.rhubroma said:But this can be said of neoliberal "trickle down" policy and the elité thus created in Washington since Reagan as well. Europe though has also been rocked by neo-migration (the insidious effects of globalization) and here is were the racial issues come to the fore. Let's not kid ourselves about that. They are fueling every nationalist-populist movement in Europe right now and their leaders, from Farange, to Le Pen, to Salvini, etc.
And the elites were hugely in numerical favour of Remain, to suggest otherwise is preposterous.
I can add to the above piece with the fiscal treaty which Cameron refused to sign up to and spoke about people in the room(namely Sarkozy) who wanted everyone to sign up to it with no questions asked. Then Yanis Varoufakis who was over here last week, spoke about Michael Noonan(Irish finance minster) who was told to sign off on something with Greece having not been told what he actually was signing for.
I'm for the freedom of movement among other things within the EU but would want nothing to do with the EU in its current clique and dictatorial format. You only to see this clique of the founding members of foreign minsters who met the this week to discuss the result, while no place for little old Ireland who it will effect the most. That applies also to the other member countries.
