deficit Top News With Britain voting to leave the European Union we are now entering a brave new world Britain has even if narrowly and divisively voted to reject one of the most ambitious constitutional projects of our time: The EU It is easy to speculate on what this is a vote against; it is much harder to be confident about what this vote represents It is even more difficult to foresee whether the result will address the discontent or calm the distemper that characterised so much of the debate This vote also has the potential to unleash other constitutional convulsions in Britain and beyond It is a sign that our current structures of governance the nation state or supranational institutions all have a legitimacy deficit The big question is: Is this vote merely a local British affliction or does it portend a more global anger against the governing structures of our time The EU was an audacious constitutional project that was caught between two incompatible characterisations At the level of fantasy it had a profound moral ambition: Pacifying forever a continent ravaged by war creating open borders and common markets enshrining a progressive agenda in law and even creating a common institutional life that could knit together a diverse continent into a new tapestry It was a political project: A way station to a new liberal identity But its institutional articulation began to be experienced as the opposite: A dysfunctional entity incapable of defending itself an immigration policy that unsettled local communities common markets that came at the price of highly bureaucratised regulation a new set of institutions that are accused more of exemplifying democratic deficit than a new political identity These criticisms of the EU were hugely exaggerated; the EU does have democratic representation Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news But fundamentally particularly in Britain the contest between Leave and Remain turned into a contest between some fantasy of restoring self-government re- establishing a modicum of control over economic destiny and cultural environment on the one hand and an economic instrumentalism on the other If you present something as only a necessary evil people will remember the “evil” part and forget the “necessity” The case for EU had three cardinal weaknesses: It never infused the EU project with any degree of imaginative power or romantic appeal To this extent both the Conservative and Labour parties are to blame They damned Europe with faint praise Second the instrumental argument for the gains that Europe brings were increasingly looking thin Europe’s dysfunction over everything from monetary policy to the refugee crisis made it look less like an effective instrument for providing solutions And thirdly England outside of the city of London clearly did not see the economic benefits this integration had promised Can Britain prosper outside the EU The honest answer is that we don’t know A lot will depend on the conundrum of English identity and politics If this is a revolt against globalisation then this vote should be read above all as a vote against the city of London which has come to epitomise open immigration financialisation of the economy elites that are out of touch a home for crony capitalism driven by real estate speculation and a cosmopolitanism that dilutes British identity The gap between City and Country is as it were growing It is not clear that any strategy that requires Britain managing its economic recovery post-Brexit will necessarily be able to overcome this contradiction Indeed repositioning the British economy in the global system in these circumstances might paradoxically require the power of London to be enhanced rather than diminished In short it is far from an established conclusion that Britain will become less not more neo-liberal/authoritarian after leaving Europe Britain might be able to manage the aftermath of the exit It is less clear that the rest of the world will For one thing this exit will for the time being take the romance out of all regional integration projects for which Europe was a model It will strengthen right wing and parochial tendencies in the rest of Europe even further Every politician around the world will now be more skittish about open immigration In an era of global discontent it will embolden a political tendency of our time to experiment with risky alternatives It is easy to list the evils of globalisation: The inequalities it produced the sense of marginality amongst working classes of developed countries and a sense that there is no longer a community which collectively exercises control over itself This sense of disempowerment is real and understandable; it will be foolish for any politician to underestimate it But whether globalisation is at the root of this or whether there are other causes is debatable There is widespread angst and discontent But voting against integration into wider spaces may be like the person who is looking for the key under the lamppost not because he lost the key there but because there seems to be light under the lamp post The EU had many ills; but it also had a touch of a healthy utopian aspiration to it The utopian aspiration has been rejected in favour of the nation state But what does the “Leave” victory represent It is clear that the establishment of both major political parties was deeply out of sync with significant sections of the electorate But the close margin of victory and geographical distribution of support should make one cautious in interpreting the results It has to be said that if the EU lost so has nationalism In fact the referendum may go down not as a nationalist reaction to internationalism but as an exposure of the limits of both Both the nation state form and the supranational in its current incarnation seem tired and wanting legitimacy It is hard to argue that the “nationalist” reaction has generated a new wave of solidarity If anything this is a nationalist vote that exposes divides: Between London and the rest of England; between Scotland and England between the young and the old This is not a nationalist vote that restores a sense of identity and purpose to England let alone Great Britain It represents the revolt of a significant section of England against itself: Against the city of London against the unanimity of its political classes against England’s historical tendency to have a larger footprint on the world first through Union then Empire and then the EU Instead of an accession into wider circles England now seems like a fragment of a nation a “god in ruins” to borrow Kate Atkinson’s resonant phrase (This article first appeared in the print edition under the

over the lynchings with the Congress accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of "creating such an environment" and indulging in "double speak" on the issue Congress leader Kapil Sibal while speaking in the Rajya Sabha on lynchings alleged that the prime minister was doing nothing to restrain cow vigilantes who he said include elements from VHP and Bajrang Dal He was participating in a discussion on the ‘situation arising out of the reported increase in the incidents of lynching and atrocities on minorities and dalits across the country’ which started on Wednesday Sibal said the year 2017 has witnessed maximum murders and the cattle ban had negatively impacted leather industry besides industries like soap and shampoo File image of Parliament building PTI "I am shaken and shattered by the images of grotesque violence and heart-wrenching scenes (which) I have seen on social media and Twitter We did not see it in the last 50 years" he said He went on to question "What is the sentiment behind it Why 97 percent of the violence has taken place after 2017" Targeting the prime minister he said it was Modi who had "provoked" such sentiments and quoted his three speeches on 8 October 2015 6 August 2016 and 29 June 2017 Sibal said paradoxically in one of the speeches the prime minister had said that some people were involved in the crime during night and during the day they converted into ‘gau rakshaks’ but no action was taken against such people "It is the PM whose statement is different during night and different during day.It is PM who is creating such environment It is better to stop double speak and come clean" the Congress leader said He said the prime minister should not just quote Mahatma Gandhi but follow him in letter and spirit Sibal said the VHP has announced creating a "holy army of gau rakshas" and recruited 2700 people "These are recruited by VHP and trained by Bajrang Dal" he said and questioned "Why doesn’t he (PM) say that VHP and Bajrang Dal were anti-social He gets political support for elections Hindutva ideology has created a reign of terror" Sibal said He said the fight today is between "fake" and "real" hindu He said the House needs to rise to stop hooligans who were out to destroy peace and tranquility of the nation The Congress leader alleged that government was not able to even take care of cows as 50 cows had lost their lives in Haryana as they were not taken care of well Raising a point of order Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said Sibal should authenticate three statements of the PM which he quoted else these should be expunged He also objected to mention of VHP and Bajrang Dal saying it is the practice not to mention those who are absent from the floor of the House and cannot defend themselves Naresh Gujral (SAD) while participating in the debate urged the members to refrain from giving political colour to incidents in a land where Buddha and Mahavir spread the message of tolerance Asserting that goondaism cannot be tolerated he said the governemnt could talk to the Chief Justice of India for creating special court for speedy trial of lynching cases which amounted to acts like "terrorism" He said it was time that this "madness" was brought to an end as people are becoming reluctant to come and invest in India in such an atmosphere Attacking the government Naresh Gujral (JD-U) said the incidents of lynching were more deadly than killings by Talibans and Afghans When religion overtakes poltics or vise versa internal conflicts are created he said and pointed towards Pakistan Afghanistan and Syria Yadav said "it is unfortunate that such a condition has been created in the country that a student from JNU goes traceless people are lynched in the name of cow and condition has become so bad that people are afraid of travelling in buses and trains" He said BJP-ruled states were witnessing maximum cases of lynching Such incidents occurred in 14 districts of Jharkhand 11 districts of UP 9 districts of Haryana 5 districts of Rajasthan and 4 districts each of Madhya Pradesh Maharashtra and Gujarat Yadav said Alleging that laws were being trampled he asked the government to take "corrective measures as the minority community of India has chosen the country to live and die here" "Don’t provoke him Stop this drama" he said and alleged that livestock was

political scene in Delhi than about the future trajectory and pace of Indias economic policy Howeverthe primary concern of many international observers is in the pace of reform in relation to foreign
