Immigration and Inequality

Bureaucracy, sovereignty and particularly immigration are closely connected to the Leave vote. Those who predicted economic improvements arising from Leave are surely in the minority. The vote highlights a level of disenfranchisement felt acutely in some areas of the country, with Eurosceptisism perhaps acting as a proxy for anti-establishment sentiment. As a society we need to look hard at inequality and engagement issues and how these are unequally distributed across geographies.
