The New Europeans I Europe At A Crossroads - ARTE.tv Documentary

Really excellent documentary. I can understand the anger/resentment of the guy in Redcar, but how often people like that vote against their best interests. 70% of voters there, voted for Brexit, which was entirely against their own self interest. Immigrants are not their enemy but politicians who have continually paid lip service to the poorest areas of Britain, for decades. I remember visiting a village in the valleys of Wales, during the 90s, where they had almost 90% unemployment. They were being left to rot by their government.
