Where we live affects our point of view. Broadly speaking, in the 2016 referendum English urban areas voted Remain and English rural areas voted Leave. But some decaying urban areas, such as Wigan, also voted Leave. A declining urban area is a dismal prospect. And as buildings collapse and vegetation pushes up through roads, such places revert to wilderness. In this unofficial countryside voters take on the same beseiged viewpoint as the rural areas. Very few MP's representing such places have the courage to follow their convictions but Lisa Nandy MP for Wigan has said, "The prospect of damage of no deal. is so serious that there is no question in my mind that I would vote to revoke Article 50." Against the tide, she acts with honest and decent intent. A leader who only follows isn't worth much.
