Since Brexit the world has changed

When even the party of open door immigration is wheeling out their most left-wing leader ever to announce (in a half-hearted way so that you suspect he had his fingers crossed) that free movement might possible need to end you know that things are changing:  http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/jeremy-corbyn-brexit-eu-immigration-high-pay-latest-chaos-single-market-a7520366.html

Forget the qualifications and the weasel words.

Focus on the fact that he had to address the subject in the first place.

Since Brexit the world has changed.

A nation state requires political parties that are nationalist.

As we have seen today, the Labour leadership is not capable of expressing nationalism.

Therefore they will have nothing relevant to say to the British people.

How many of the current House of Commons will be able to turn themselves into nationalist poiticians?  Less than a third one suspects.  We are in a pre-1973 world (even perhaps a pre-1968 world) when it comes to the new language politicians will need to learn.
