Since David Cameron's failed referendum bet, Britain seems to have been sucked into a spiral of political failure, bringing down in its downfall its belief in representative democracy.
David Cameron, Theresa May and now, icing on the cake, Boris Johnson! If the expression "betrayal of the intellectuals", the very beautiful title of the book written by Julien Benda in 1927, applies in the contemporary world, it is indeed to Great Britain. Not so long ago, The Economist magazine described Brexit as the "Waterloo" of Oxford's social elites. The team Boris Johnson surrounded himself with seems to be breaking records for arrogance and ignorance of reality.
