Brexit: Look behind

What concerns me most about Brexit is not the immediate consequences of
the loss of European funding for some of the poorest areas of Britain,
or the instability of the markets,
the end of the Erasmus programme,
the UK being left without any aircraft carrier (we share one with the French),

What concerns me most is not so much what we have done, but what lies behind it. And I am concerned that in the generation that did not live through the horrors of the World War Two and the struggle against the extreme right, that we are drifting slowly further to the right.

Oh well. It will be interesting.
