Psychoanalyst puts Brexit Britain on the couch. Part 3: Lewes

Fear, loathing and frustration over Britain’s departure from the EU have created fault lines throughout the country. In the latest installment of our series ‘Britain on the Couch’, we head to the divided constituency of Lewes, where Remain won by a narrow majority. Even in this sleepy market town people on both sides say they’ve been subjected to violence for publicly stating their views. Evidence perhaps of our collective Brexit breakdown? We sent the psychoanalyst Susanna Abse to Lewes with our very own Channel 4 News couch to see if she could find common ground across the political divide.
