Rose tries to argue that both the leave and remain campaigns suffered from the fact we expect men to strut the stage with no flicker of doubt.
Brexit has seen the whole gambit of world views in my view. For example, The Economist, prior to the vote, referred to post-truth politics. I respect the perspective of feminism but the case has definitely not been made by Ms. Rose.
In my view, there is perhaps an argument for writing up the post-modern view of Brexit? After all, it’s only raw power that can explain the irrational and the illogical behaviour. Post-modernism captures power and fear effectively. See my popular pre-Brexit blog for my own perspective, Brexit – Cosmopolitans, Ostriches, Lemmings and the Pied Piper
Personally, I am a realist. As a realist, if I take stock of the post-Brexit world, there’s a need for restoring truth and justice. Tony Blair is right in his NYT op-ed we cannot let far-left populists win any more than we can the far-right populists. That’s why we need a new political party to seize the central grounds of politics.
