Partial truths, distorted facts and outright lies have helped create the febrile climate that exists post Brexit. The information war that took place prior to the referendum created an atmosphere in which rational judgements were hard to make and gut instinct rose to the fore. Within this context, advocates of Vote Leave rubbished experts and mishandled facts with glee. Anyone contesting these claims were branded as promoters of Project Fear and part of the expert-led conspiracy that sought to undermine the public’s right to self-determination.
Post referendum and the dust hasn’t yet settled. We are starting to see lots of data giving us insight into what happened - from polls to voting patterns, from demographics to economic forecasts. This is an opportunity to look deeper, analyse and share thoughts on a most extraordinary event.
We are an open forum and anyone who has insight and analysis to share are encouraged to participate. For further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
