Bow Group Senior Patron, Professor Sir Roger Scruton, features in a A Point of View special edition, discussing the ramifications of Brexit - what the vote tells us about the country we are, and are likely to become.

Professor Scruton reflects on 'Democracy After Brexit' and explains why he feels it is the ordinary people of this country who care about democracy, not the urban elites.

"The referendum gave these people a voice", writes Scruton, "and what they have told us is that their country, its laws and its sovereignty are more important to them than the edicts of anonymous bureaucrats striving to rule from nowhere".
