The Guardian has the story – see link above

Another powerful commentary from Nick Cohen on what happens when you play the racism card.

This quote is chilling – ‘It is still not true to say that race and immigration were all that mattered to everyone who voted leave. But they were all that mattered to Vote Leave. Mainstream Tories accepted that creating and exploiting fear would take them to victory. They played with fire and you can hear the flames crackling.’
