Brexit. June 2019 saw, with regard to Brexit, developments that may be decisive. Referring to Theresa May's decision to resign as a result of the united parliamentary rejection of the deal he has concluded with the EU, thus opening up the succession of the post of prime minister, hugging the orientation / option of Conservative Party members (about 160,000 members of the tens of millions who take part in the regular parliamentary elections). Two personalities have been depicted in the preferences of the conservative electorate: Boris Johnson, known as Brexiteer, but with old anti-continental orientation states since he was an accredited journalist in Brussels to refer to EU affairs for big British daily newspapers; the other, Jeremy Hunt, was also a member of the May cabinet as Foreign Minister, but different from the competitor through realistic vision and respectable democratic beliefs (so with firm opinions not borrowed or influenced by strong personalities such as President Trump).
But this 10 Downing Street competition was, from a point of view, auspicious, because it revealed how much changed over the past two years - since the June 2016 referendum - the British national political stratification and the ruling party's guidelines. Some obvious sociological indications are simply astounding and highlight that the British political establishment has changed enormously and deserves to wonder whether this is due to Brexit or is the result of developments that are related to the current digital era of instantaneous information and participation ubiquitous human to its diffusion and production, but also to the effects of globalisation and technological breakthroughs.
