"The gap between the rich and the poor, the householder and the tenant, the educated and the uneducated, the old and the young, has grown wider and wider. Brexit became the great vent through which grievances that had nothing to with Brussels bubbled."
I wouldn't quite say "nothing" but I agree with the general sentiment.
I just wish all that Brexit energy were directed into new social and economic structures that might actually address those grievances.
