Like many highly effective demagogues before him, he has ridden the far right, but can he contain them, or will he be swept aside by something more sinister?

Those with a decent grasp of history will recognise a trend here. Very frightening unless we can wrest control back from him and assert parliamentary democracy over the decision whether or not to implement brexit in a manner that does not itself unleash unrest. We stand on the edge of something potentially very bad indeed.

www.lrb.co.uk/blog/2016/06/27/sadakat-kadri/bullxit/ should work. Yes, interesting and worrying.

Thanks quagmire. Can't find the link but someone at the EU thing today described him as extraordinarily selfish. A commentator on a Canadian programme about Brexit said there was a special place in hell for politicians like him.
