"The Durham Miners would never wear it," were the words that the British Government of the late 1940s wrote across the plans for the EU's first precursor, before duly sending them back. That was that. "The Durham Miners would never wear it." So the United Kingdom's answer was no. That meant the Durham Miners' Association, with its vast network of national and international contacts. But it also meant the miners themselves, who were the basis of that Association's wealth and power. Yet on the day of the EU referendum, Thursday 23rd June 2016, we learned that in 2015, for the first time on record, more people had died in the North East of England, from which I write, than had been born here. County Durham voted Leave, and Sunderland, which had been part of the Durham coalfield in the 1940s, shook the international money markets by doing so. Albeit from a perspective partly in the North West and partly in Scotland, Bell explains why.
At the end of the day, I still feel that we got the right result for the wrong reasons. But that does not devalue it. Corrupt self-perpetuating oligarchy's, be they the Roman senate 2000 years ago or the modern EU ruling class, eventually self-destruct. It is better to be on the outside when this happens. Bell rams home that message.
Well worth the read!
