Faux outrage

I’m pretty sure the final terms of our departure from the EU will please neither side. And yet while the political scene appears toxic, I suspect much of the brouhaha is media generated. We are a long way from the civil war of the ’70s and ’80s, and can console ourselves the population of most other countries appears similarly set against one another. The world has never been richer and in better health, but people can’t get beyond the belief that someone somewhere is doing better than they are.
