Only the grassroots can halt populist politics and its dangerous fakery
Our man is slightly missing the point here:
At a time when our parliamentary opposition parties are so weak, waking up can only mean returning to grassroots mobilisation. The March for Europe in London on 2 July showed what can be organised at short notice. About 50,000 people on the streets and more than 1,000 people across the country signed up as volunteers within a few days of the referendum. Far from remainers feeling disheartened, they are angry and active.
What is that other than populism?
