Opinion – Charlottesville, demographic change, and misplaced white anxiety – via Brookings Institution

Conclusions from this excellent article by leading US think-tank Brookings are highly transferable to other multiracial societies, where populist leaders are fanning fear with aging white working class voters. It applies equally to both Far Left and Far Right driven populism, where the truth is subordinated and the end justifies the means. For me, the UK provides a vivid example where the thread might read, ‘Brexit, demographic change, and misplaced white anxiety’. Thoughts?

Opinion – Ministers selling out UK exporters, Corbyn to say – the Guardian

Strange world with Jeremy Corbyn passionate about business investment? Meanwhile, UK Government’s Liam Fox still in hot pursuit of ‘chlorinated chickens’ for all. But Rees-Smogg and his hedge-fund supporters must be getting ready to speculate against the Pound on the back of a hard-Brexit? I never thought I’d agree with Jeremy Corbyn on anything but he’s right about British exporters being seriously underweight. Any thoughts on an aggressive pro-trade policy post Brexit?
