On being misrepresented by right-wing Brexiteers

I feel your pain! It is so frustrating and wrong. Where is the room for debate, nuance etc? I have friends who voted Leave for Left, anti-globalisation reasons and are feminist and anti-racist. I did not agree with them (because I believe the Leave campaign was driven from the top by a racist, pro-deregulation agenda). However, some felt their Lexit arguments were not being heard either. In other words, there is not much room for debate. Debate is where change happens. Please carry on calling out racism, Owen, because something ugly and hateful is getting legitimised. (Wish the Lexiters could see that too…).

Like what you read? Give Elisabeth Winkler a round of applause.
