American "progressives" don't mince words about where their allegiance lies
If a bunch of nostalgic/resentful/racist oldsters vote Britain out of the EU, they'll be forcing their bitterness on a generation that doesn't want it. The truth is that Brexit will barely affect older voters either way: they mostly don't work and they mostly have only local friendships.
Kind of mirrors the epithets thrown against those of us who happened to be older and voted for Hillary in the primaries in 2008. Yes why would a bunch of Old fucks -who saw Margaret Thacher, and her successors in both parties, take away a century of gains in labor and national health- be resentful?
