Personally I find the outrage of the Boris bus
It disappears into insignificance compared to this
outrageous bullshit scaremongering.
Common sense should surely scream that its at least equally possible that the scaremongering matched the bus influence on peoples decisions.
Smug George sat behind the editors desk should shoulder some of the blame as to why 'experts opinion' is so easily dismissed by so many these days.
I've always respected Ken Clarke & that's accepting I dont agree with all his views but I think he's generally trusted/respected by most imho & he's a staunch remainer who voted for a deal
Unlike so many he accepted the decision of the referendum that he feels such never have been offered in the 1st place. For the record, I said years ago, probably somewhere on fiso, I didn't believe in a referendum on the EU, it should be put into a general election manifesto in or out.

During my recent 3 week visit to the UK, I spoke to many people - from both sides of the political and public/private sector divide - and not one was in favour of leaving the EU.
if there was a vote tomorrow we would pull out.
Yet almost every single poll that has ever been done on the subject shows you to be wrong.
They are both wrong.
A fair proportion would vote out but I don't think it is quite over 50%.
I agree it could be a very close vote & I'll admit I'd vote out but.................................................common sense must surely enter into the equation? I dont think its a good time to be creating even more uncertainty & for that reason if a vote was in the near future, I'm not certain I would vote out now?I'm not a fan of referendums, the government should decide, get the mandate in a general election imho.source
