Heath characterises this as a struggle between the liberal democrats - us - against the managerialists of 'authoritarian liberalism'. And we are losing. Heath also admits that we have lost Brexit.
I prefer to call this emergent global political model “managerialism”. If you want to find some of its more vocal proponents, look no further than the pro-EU “rebel” MPs slowly but surely killing off Brexit: their contempt for real democracy is matched only by their preposterous self-regard. They are typical card-carrying authoritarian liberals, convinced that they know better than we do what is good for us. ...Please, if you spend money on anything today, buy a copy of the Telegraph and clip Heath's article.
Brexit is being overturned but it won an astonishing victory against a Remain side that massively outspent it....
There is huge, pent-up populist anger across the EU, and the rage of the Brexiteers when they find out they have been conned will be something else....
Britain almost broke away; but it seems that the tide of history was too strong for Theresa May’s hapless government. Still, history never ends, and supporters of liberal democracy will live to fight another day, in Britain and across the world.
We must start over again. We need a party to replace both UKIP and the Conservatives, that supports fundamental libertarian and democratic values, that supports all those deserted and abandoned by the Labour Party and that isn't ashamed to learn from the Swiss how to defend popular democracy.
This fight has just started.
