He does not pay tribute eg.to Parliamentarians' role in digging into the facts and consequences both economic, political and internally social resulting from a novel form of political populism known as a "referendum" which did not pretend to set accurate facts or consequences of a Brexit ostensibly restoring the"Great" into Britain" last experienced in the first half of the last century (and in which incidentally no referendum featured) and although trying to cement our Union in a manner admired by Trump, who vowed to make Anerica First.
