Reader’s comment: Mutual distrust


In response to Michael St George: It’s undemocratic, bullying and broke. So why do the ‘liberal’ elite still love the EU? The Duke of Umberland, England wrote:

The political elite no longer believe that their legitimacy is justified by the consent of the governed – they seem to think that their right to govern is grounded in their education and sneering moral superiority.

The governed in turn have lost faith in the elite.

If this is correct then the concept of ‘the sovereignty of the people’ is dead. That means we have a potentially catastrophic crisis of legitimacy on our hands.
