Brexit: The Uncivil War

Dramatisation of one aspect of the Brexit “Leave” campaign, focussing on a tonsured Bandersnatch Phantybatch as charming person Dominic Cummings – it didn’t get great reviews in the press, but then we’ve had enough of experts, apparently. Whilst it was never going to capture “the truth” of it, I think it was a reasonable watch provided you could stomach watching it all unfold again and live with the stomach-churning reminder of the lies, manipulation and misinformation used to activate millions of people who already felt disenfranchised: it highlighted that the measure of a success of an election/referendum campaign rests not on having the best motives & plan, but by convincing them to put the tick in the box you want them to.
