Children’s behaviour is constantly portrayed with a psychological label. Writing and reading are not simply techniques of communication, and reading is not purely a skill that allows individuals to decode a text. Their sense of anxiety about the unpredictable behaviour of the mass electorate is sublimated through the EU discussion; and they seek to temper foolish passions by channelling the whole debate towards technical issues linked to the economy. As the Allies stood at the south bank of the Arno River in July, preparing to assault Kesselring’s most formidable barrier yet–the infamous Gothic Line–the Americans clearly had too many tanks and not enough infantrymen.
