Let's review history.
The so-called elite are not "the best and the brightest" as they say.

In truth, they are the ones with the guns.

I thought that the phrase "best and brightest" came from David Halberstam's book about the origins of the Vietnam war, and so was meant ironically from the start. So it would apply perfectly to the Brexiters.
