In haste, to Rain Dog.

"I do find it amusing the way some of you interpret a simple yes/no vote to say that it is not a majority vote. According to that reasoning only 43.35% voted to remain in the EU in the 1975 vote. Should that not have counted?"

The vote shouldn't have happened at all. The decision should have been made by Parliament. I know Jim disagrees. I say that to demonstrate that he and I at least are not one of the Secret Seven (worry not - I know you were kidding...)
