Heroic Failure: Brexit and the Politics of Pain
Heroic Failure: Brexit and the Politics of Pain4,04 25 5 Forfatter: Fintan O'Toole Oplæser: Sam Devereaux
In exploring the answers to the question: 'why did Britain vote leave?', Fintan O'Toole finds himself discovering how trivial journalistic lies became far from trivial national obsessions; how the pose of indifference to truth and historical fact has come to define the style of an entire political elite; how a country that once had colonies is redefining itself as an oppressed nation requiring liberation; the strange gastronomic and political significance of prawn-flavoured crisps, and their role in the rise of Boris Johnson; the dreams of revolutionary deregulation and privatisation that drive Arron Banks, Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg; and the silent rise of English nationalism, the force that dare not speak its name.
"There will not be much political writing in this or any other year that is carried off with such style" THE TIMES.
