Heroic Failure (F.O´Toole) PB

Heroic Failure (F.O´Toole) PB

In exploring the answers to the question: ´why did Britain vote leave?´, Fintan O´Toole finds himself discovering how trivial journalistic lies became far from trivial national obsessions; how the pose of indifference to truth and historical fact has come to define the style of an entire political elite; how a country that once had colonies is redefining itself as an oppressed nation requiring liberation; the strange gastronomic and political significance of prawn-flavoured crisps, and their role in the rise of Boris Johnson; the dreams of revolutionary deregulation and privatisation that drive Arron Banks, Nigel Farrage and Jacob Rees-Mogg; and the silent rise of English nationalism, the force that dare not speak its name.

He also discusses the fatal attraction of heroic failure, once a self-deprecating cult in a hugely successful empire that could well afford the occasional disaster: the Charge of the Light Brigade, or Franklin lost in the Arctic. Now failure is no longer heroic it is just failure, and its terrible costs will be paid by the most vulnerable of Brexit´s supporters, and by those who may suffer the consequences of a hard border in Ireland and the breakdown of a fragile peace.
