DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4165* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 15 Apr 19


Thanks for that, SRS. It is an interesting paper, though I have to say that when it uses terms like 'coconstition of Brexit geopolitics' I fear expressions may be being used in specialist senses I do not fully understand. Not the paper's fault, of course: it is aimed at other academics with that shared understanding I may lack. Also, that the paper is based on 15 interviews does call into question how representative a sample this is. With those caveats, there seemed to be a fair amount in it. One thing I found striking was how - oversimplifying greatly - the viewpoint of Leavers is often focused on the 'top level' concepts of things like 'sovereignty', 'national interest' and such like, whereas Remainers are often focused on how individuals are affected by all this. It is a crude simplification, of course, as both care about both, but that difference is, I think, present. The paper reflects this, and is largely about how the individuals interviewed deal with pressures at both levels.

Definitely worth a read.
