Abstract

I’ve been trying to think how to express myself following the referendum. Remain or leave, it should have been a democratic process. But it wasn’t. Campaigns misrepresented the entire debate, turning it into a political power play between rich white men. Channel 4 televised a show about the debate entitled ‘Boris v Dave: the battle for Europe’, suggesting we weren’t debating the relative merits of being part of a wider European community at all but the relative merits of two self-serving morons. Up and down the country the two men took different approaches to campaigning for their positions, with Boris preferring to show how relatable he can be in a bus, whilst Cameron preferring to show how legitimate his campaign was with organised speeches.
