In response to Niall McCrae: Brexit is one in the eye for the patronising Left, Groan wrote:
The advantage the “Left” have had is that has had a “programme” linking apparently disparate issues. A programme developed and propagandised in our education system. From the 1970s onwards, effective because so much of our society is dominated by university-educated professionals, frequently either in the employ or funded by the State.
From Doctors to the Beeb through to the Civil Service, teaching, local gov. the law etc. Think how effectively one could direct the future by powerfully influencing the people who wield the power. In a way the Corbyn phenomena is similar to Brexit as the Unions in particular have realised how much “Labour” has abandoned labourers. Of course their solution is madness but it is very clear that Corbyn faces the strongest resistance from the “identity politics” cultural Marxists playing every PC card.
So the long march through the institutions means this elite are now the Establishment. Frankly there will need to be an equally long march back. The Brexit vote is just the first salvo in a long battle. Frankly, at the moment, I’d still put money on the Establishment heading off any real brexit.
Niall is right, part of any long march back has to be not to concede the ground to this Establishment, for that simply keeps the game in their court.
