Memories of 2016: lowlight of the year: the Brexit campaign itself, the loss of Jo Cox
There is no doubt that politics has become more divisive, more bitter and angrier. I saw this in America when I observed the American election, and I saw it in the Brexit campaign. This culminated in the killing of Jo Cox. The campaign itself was messy and divisive. We are all brexiteers now, and I am certain we will make this work as a country, but this will take time to heal.
