2. It should be open goal for some party or other, or for we Remainer plebs

if we can make our voices heard.

Labour does have some wealthy individuals in its ranks and Shadow Cabinet, of course, so may be less inclined to do so. But nothing defines "elite" to me like an ex-public schoolboy ex-financial trader long-time European Parliament member with ultra-wealthy cronies and backers who seems not to have done an honest day's work in his life (yes, I'm talking about you, Mr Farage) or an ex-public school ex-Oxbridge spad married into wealth who's made a hobby of being an unelected disruptive arsehole all his adult life (yes, I'm talking about you, Mr Cummings). And that's before starting on the likes of Rees-Mogg, FFS?!?!

Cummings has been roundly ridiculed by many for the glib outburst above, but how the hell don't they get called out on this more on a daily basis? I guess it has parallels with Trump, another shiftless shady arch-silverspooner who somehow managed to persuade enough unwealthy people he was on their side to swing an election (or at least bring it close enough that it was swingable by shenanigans).
