“Bitter Remainers” have been mocked as they “still can’t accept” Brexit. More than six years after Britons voted for the country to leave the EU, those who backed ‘Remain’ have been criticised over continued complaints.
Sathnam Sanghera argued the result of the 2016 referendum taught British politicians they could win “via disinformation, division and chaos”.
He is the author of Empireland, which discusses “how imperialism has shaped modern Britain”.
Writing in a post on Twitter, Mr Sanghera said: “Brexit taught British politicians that they could win via disinformation, division and chaos.
“British politics will remain defined by disinformation, division and chaos until we admit the truth about Brexit.”
Guardian columnist Hannah Fearn commented that there has never been “a more accurately summary written on this site”.
Nile Gardiner instead contended, however, that it was Mr Sanghera’s message rather than Brexit itself which in this case presented the main lesson.
The foreign policy analyst and former aide to Margaret Thatcher responded in a post on Twitter: “Bitter Remainers still can’t accept the democratic will of the British people.”
Journalist David Jack was another to express criticism of the argument that Brexit taught politicians they could “win via disinformation”.

He wrote: “The level of hyperbole is quite staggering.
“Politicians have been bending the truth since time began.
“Thank God most voters are savvy enough to make their own minds up.”

Tory Lord Moylan also joked that Mr Sanghera’s post was “so sad”.
He added: “And he expects his book on the empire to be taken seriously.”
While the debate around Britain’s exit from the Brussels bloc is much quieter today than in recent years, politicians continue to work on resolving the dispute over the Northern Ireland Protocol.
The Tánaiste of Ireland last week conceded that while the Protocol was “working”, it was in need of changing.
Leo Varadkar said: “I think… that there is some room for further flexibility for some changes that hopefully would make it acceptable to all sides.”
Prime Minister Liz Truss has long stressed that a negotiated settlement with Brussels over the post-Brexit deal remains her “preference”.
