In the Salisbury Review Dalrymple describes an encouraging encounter with a taxi driver:
As to Brexit’s long term effect, he thought it would be good. ‘We,’ he said, ‘should go more with the old commonwealth. It will be good for us.’
I liked, and was even moved by, his use of ‘we’ and ‘us.’ It was not forced, it came to him naturally. It meant that he had some attachment to Britain other than as a cash cow. He was loyal to it and wanted to see it prosper. Moreover, his replies showed he had thought about it.
