Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Well, Nigel, as the wrinklies drop off the top the sucklings come in at the bottom. That doesn't necessarily maintain the present numbers split unless you assume that the current cohort gradually turns more brexity as they age. Too much has changed since 2016 to make that assumption. Not least, the profile of the UK in the EU has been raised astronomically. Until the referendum, Europe was hardly the most controversial issue on earth, and a sorry litany of Tory leaders has bitten the dust when they tried to make a Big Thing of it (poor William Hague...). Since the referendum, the hyped-up issue has already bagged Cameron and May. We could wish for a hat-trick. Well maybe you're not one of the "we", so perhaps you'd care to defend your current exalted leader for us...
Even after yesterday?
