Brewster: What a Brit Thinks of Brexit

Tony Blair on the Brexit vote and the revolt against moderate leadership. His summary paragraph pertains very much to America today: “The political center has lost its power to persuade and its essential means of connection to the people it seeks to represent. Instead, we are seeing a convergence of the far left and far right. The right attacks immigrants while the left rails at bankers, but the spirit of insurgency, the venting of anger at those in power and the addiction to simple, demagogic answers to complex problems are the same for both extremes. Underlying it all is a shared hostility to globalization.”
