Tigerland: The Brexit counties of East Anglia (43 images)

The peoples of East Anglia are well known for their argumentative ways; From Hereward The Wake who resisted the Norman invasion, to Oliver Cromwell who asserted the primacy of democracy. The 'Fen Tigers' have had cause to remind Parliaments & Kings that they ultimately govern by consent of the people. No surprise then, when in 2016 the area became the crucible for Brexit with some areas recording over a 70% vote for leaving the EU.
