And more good news. I guess the Brexit boys will just dismiss it as more "experts" nonsense:

Powerful stuff. I've been sceptical about a second referendum, but I did find this extract from John Major's article compelling:

But the moral and democratic case for voting upon proven facts, rather than peddled fiction, is rock solid. The reverse is also true: how can it be right to hold people to a decision made upon so many false promises?

Dave - I suppose you believe their predictions fall into the same camp as those from the climate scientists? Do you never ask yourself why your belief about something is in inverse relation to the knowledge and study behind it? Is dumb always better? If so, why?

Well, they are ignoring people with knowledge, experience and informed opinion on the consequences of their strategy and goals. Is that dumb?

The real irony, is that they have all been peddling false promises ffrom the day they got elected, and, dare I say it, false promises in order to get elected.

They all seem to be busy, coming out of the cupboard and admitting they got things wrong... and? Stand by for a new vote... because it is the right thing to do. Baldricks cunning plan has moved into phase 2.

I see the design of the new Brexit 50p piece has been leaked.

One by one they're leaving, this time it's Barclays wanting to move their non-UK businesses to Ireland:

But that can't be right. The experts said Brexit would cause financial services companies to leave London - but experts are always wrong, so clearly they'll be staying. Fake news!
