What we need now is a politician brave enough to address the poisonous malaise. During the Leave campaign, we were fed lies and propaganda. This week, we had Boris Johnson thumbing his nose at us with the "punchline" that he wouldn't stand in the leadership race. It will take a lot to get us out of this mess, but let's hope that now, finally, there'll be a candidate who can put self-aggrandisement aside, admit that we're living in a fractured society, and start tackling this.
On hearing the Brexit result, my grandad texted me saying "Hopefully we'll find a way to fix things and make this OK". Like me he was shocked, disappointed and hurt that this was the choice made by such a significant proportion of Brits.
The Remain camp have avoided the immigration argument like the plague because they're scared to attack the government, so the debate consequently hasn't been framed in the right way. My message to working class voters worried about immigration is this: know your enemy. These people don't want what's best for you. They never have and they never will.
Give us the facts. Give us warnings. But please-can we stop with the constant cloud hanging over our heads? If you believe some of the more extreme claims on both sides, depending on what we choose on June 23rd, it might be one of the last times we get to see the clouds, anyway.
The best thing for the country, in the aftermath of the referendum result, would be for the Tories to unite and show some true leadership-with someone who has proved he can lead at the helm. If a certain group of Conservatives choose to discount this in favour of pushing forward their own little agenda, then it is they, and not David Cameron, who will have proved themselves untrustworthy in this referendum.
