Lessons from the Dove at Dargate

On Sunday we had a pub lunch in the beer garden of the Dove at Dargate – a typically welcoming Kentish country pub. Strikingly, the families on every table around us were talking about the EU referendum, with the friendly banter turning a bit sharp more than once. While there has been much speculation about “revenge” and “reconciliation” reshuffles to bring the Conservatives back together, something else is more important… On Friday we will see how deeply split the country is over an issue of fundamental importance, so the Government must strive to bring the public back together or else, whoever wins, defeated voters will seek new vents for their frustrations.
