"Weimar Britain". Err, Winchester?

Brexit. Who's the famous Oxford scholar who introduced the Schreck of a "Weimar Britain" as a wake-up call, thus comparing it with Versailles 1919?

Admittedly, this famous historian from England makes the provision of deliberate overstatement. Much is being taken for granted in providing ammunition against Brexiteers and other populists from the continent and the Isles. The question is, look at it from a historical point of view. Does that make any sense?

P.S.: Looking for a "Weimar Britain" twin town . . . Winchester?
