No desire to "urban elites"

the desire to have a second Referendum and to remain in the EU is a project of the urban elites, this allegation McGrory rejects sharp:

"This is not a marginal devaluation of the many young people and people from ethnic minorities, trade unions, the environmentalists, the large amount of ordinary people - it's all Elite. There are people who care passionately about their country."

About 56 percent of the British support, according to a survey currently a second Referendum, 44 percent are against it.
