    The country remains deeply divided about the expected impact of Brexit, but a clear winner has already emerged - policy departments at the universities.

    There was a 28% increase in applications to the policy courses as The Debate on Europe in the run-up to the 2016 referendum.

    the University of Liverpool Politics lecturer Jon Tonge says that other dramatic political events, such as the Scottish independence referendum and the 2015 General elections, have also reinforced applications.

    And the heavy, often toxic, nature of The Debate on the Social Media has also attracted the attention of the Young People caught, he said.

    "It is to say a terrible thing, but the more unhealthy and sharpness of The Debate is, the better it is for the policy departments in terms of bums on seats," said Prof Tonge.

    It's all a Far Cry from the Blair years, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, as the "quiet years" - the policy of Prof Tonge, if "consensus" governed, and the policy rates were not "recruiting in large numbers".

    Christopher Massey , a lecturer at Teesside University , which played just a BA (Hons) course in Politics , agrees that Brexit has to pay a great influence on the students, but Donald Trump 's presidency, and protest movements such as the eradication of the Rebellion have a role.
