Taking admissions for June onwards! The lawyer is faced with his own private dilemma. Should he defend the Englishman, face the scorn of the people and pander to the upper-class to which he yearns to belong? Is it worth the approbation of the upper-class and their money to turn his back on his own?
Should he swallow his pride and disregard the white man's assault on his dignity and on his race? Meanwhile the people are stung by the humiliating monkey assertion from the lips of a white man. The lawyer enters the political arena and needs the majority vote of the working-class. But he has already cast his lot with the upper-class, the wealthy and privileged minority. In different ways the tragedy impacts the lives of the dead boy's parents, a God-fearing mother who leans on her Christian faith and a grieving father determined to avenge the killing of his beloved son.
With bated breath the whole island awaits the day of the trial for their sense of justice to be vindicated. They expect no less a sentence than death for the Englishman.

Yet English chauvinists do not seem to have realised that the demise of the British Empire, not to mention constitutional devolution, has allowed their fellow islanders both to strengthen their own national identities and carve out more autonomy for themselves.
Moreover, the Scots, Welsh and Irish have come to see EU membership as a safeguard against English political revanchism. As in the past, imperialism aspires for unity, but comes with divisive side effects.

Brexiteer fantasies of a Global Britain focus squarely on English national identity, while diluting those of the Scottish, Northern Irish and Welsh, who would return to serving as junior partners in a far less magnificent and rewarding English project. Although socioeconomic factors played some role in the outcome of the Brexit referendum, the geographic breakdown tells the real story. Excluding London, which is a bastion of multi-ethnic cosmopolitanism, 55 per cent of voters in England supported leaving the EU, whereas 62 per cent of Scots and 56 per cent of the Northern Irish voted to remain.
The risk now is that Brexit will trigger the political disintegration of the UK, as the other nations vie to remain in the EU. No one should be lured into thinking that Brexit is a credible reflection of resurgent British nationalism.
