In the latest in our series of blogposts which aim to critically analyse the Brexit vote and it's implications, James Gough, Senior Lecturer in Town and Regional Planning at the University of Sheffield, examines what the racism and xenophobia of parts of the British working class means for contemporary left strategy.
The economic consequences of Brexit are dire. But for the left a far more serious problem thrown up by the referendum and the vote to Leave is what it shows about longstanding working class consciousness regarding ‘immigrants’, and how the Leave campaign has shifted working class opinion further to the right. For left strategy this should be the crucial concern. This aspect of Brexit is therefore what I focus on in this note.
