This is one of perhaps several posts looking back at the election. There is no point in this post going over the fine detail of the election win as umpteen media reports have done just that. Here we focus on other things, we might call it the back story. First the fact that the 2016 Brexit referendum changed so much of UK politics but so few people could face up to this. The referendum was direct democracy, the voter thus had the power. This upset the likes of Ken Clarke who was arrogant enough to declare the result, 'a mere opinion poll'.
