Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Indeed, Dave. If you order the parties by attitude, then the hard Brexiteers of UKIP lost heavily in proportion to previously held seats, through the confused middle (which was down) to the pro-EU parties that did well.
However, I still maintain that it was inappropriate for a voter to pay too much attention to Brexit when deciding how to vote. In fact, despite what the press is suggesting, I think any glib assumption that the dissatisfaction with the government is all about Brexit rather than say austerity, Windrush, the wondrous incompetence of Grayling and the rest lacks evidence. That Brexit played a part is undeniable. How big a part is uncertain.
