Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My point would be that the Establishment has slid to the chaotic right.

Have I mentioned that if I regard Brexit as some sort of rebellion by the old aristocracy it makes more sense?

It certainly gives a fresh and useful perspective, though not to forget the decisive role of libertarian billionaires. The English aristocracy has always tolerated the rise of sufficiently wealthy nouveaux riches into its ranks, so we could count the Murdochs and the Barclays in with them.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
