Powerful stuff indeed and Cohen could not have hit the nail more squarely on the head.

Immigration – Tories played with fire and racism crackles all around us all

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.’

Gove and Boris savaged by Guardian

This is a powerful piece indeed and well worth reading. My thanks to Roy Connell for spotting it.

As an aside I heard Anna Soubry MP say on Channel 4 News tonight that both her Tory Party and Labour had in effect stoked up anti EU feelings over issues that had nothing to do with the EU. She even mentioned that the Libs had not done this. Her anger with Gove and Boris was very clear.
