How far was Brexit powered by Britain’s yearning for an Imperial past that can never return? And how useful to the populists who promoted it is imagery like the opening credits of Dad’s Army, which shows plucky old Blighty being pushed back to the Kent coastline by the advancing German army?

Adrian Goldberg hears from Byline Times editor Hardeep Matharu and two of the paper’s writers, Otto English and Jonathan Lis about the influence of the past upon the present and the future.

Made in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg for Byline Times.
