If you want to know how our world became so polarised, look at the competing narratives about the #PutitothePeopleMarch. Critics from left and right denounce the marchers as members of an elite. It's worth acknowledging the extent to which that's true--and also true of Brexiteers
Yesterday's march was huge. As a veteran of marches following precisely that route, it was the largest by far that I've seen. After three hours, my group, nowhere near the back of the march, had been able to move only 0.4 miles, from Hyde Park Corner to the start of St James's St

My Guinean cab driver to Midi Station: are you pro or anti Brexit?

Me: anti - we all do better in a group which is why I’m going to the march.

Him: you are a true patriot. Without the UK, France and Germany together , Europe is nothing.
