Remainers will get nowhere by continuing to shout: ‘Told you so’ | Anne McElvoy

There is a strong case against Brexit, but it must be made without condescending to those who voted for itIf liberals are so right, why are so many electorates finding us unpalatable? Progressive sorts, who believe that openness – to ideas, migration and trade – brings more benefits than closing off minds and borders are popular with each other. Sometimes they win power – Emmanuel Macron in France, Angela Merkel, most likely again in Germany next month. But they are not in the White House, nor are their near-cousins, Remainers, winning the argument in Britain.Thomas Frank’s salty account, Listen, Liberal, on why America’s Democrats, left-liberal media and intellectual class failed to stop Donald Trump becoming president is one of the more honest attempts to answer that conundrum. Frank’s thesis is that they are still failing to convince most of those who voted for the dangerous pyrotechnic tweeter in the White House that he is on the wrong path: “The news media’s alarms about Trump have been shrieking at high C for more than a year,” he wrote in the Guardian.

To sum up her approach, she is calling for people not to be smug as the bottles begin to fall, but instead make coherent cases for a different approach View On WordPress

During the referendum, the economic arguments were a major area of debate. Remainers, including the UK Treasury, argued that being in the EU has a strong positive effect on trade and as a result the UK's trade would be worse off if it left the EU. Supporters of withdrawal from the EU have argued that the cessation of net contributions to the EU would allow for some cuts to taxes or increases in government spending.

Certainly, if he could get into the Priory and search the house, he might discover Anne. Or, it might be, that if he confided in Franklin and told him of his love for Anne, the man might tell the truth and let him have an interview. But the matter took some thinking out. He decided to let it remain in abeyance at present. After kissing the coin--had it not been Anne's?--he slipped it into his waistcoat-pocket and returned home.
"Oh, I know that. Anne--I may as well call her Anne to you, Mr. Ware--wrote to me from Rickwell several times. She told me all about you. But I have not seen her since the death of your fiancée. I have no idea where she is now."
