Populist victory in Italy

Matteo Renzi, Italy's prime minister, Matteo Renzi resigned today after a referendum on constitutional reforms that would weaken regional governments and strengthen power in Rome was defeated.

It's another victory for populists over bureaucrats in faraway places. First Brexit, then Donald Trump, now Italy. Ordinary people aren't as dumb as the elitists think. Actually, I'm beginning to think the elitists are the morons.
