This resulted in the election of President Donald Trump in 2016 and a Brexit vote in the EU referendum which has brought no benefits to the UK other than make the rich richer.

But Brexit was never about the will of the people, it was all about the will of the rich and powerful.

From: Jack Gooch, Market Weighton.
