Says those who voted for Brexit will not benefit from it

  • "The changes that are in the making at the moment will not help these people"
  • "They haven't lost their jobs because of immigration -- or otherwise these jobs will still be there -- but because of technology and globalization, which the U.K. will still continue because they still want to be a part of the global trading system."

Nothing better than sweeping generalisations in the place of analysis. Thanks for that. Maybe 'these people' voted for Brexit for other reasons?
