    Seems like a well adjusted young man, now tell me why his opinion matters?

    Because his entire thoughtful journey from liberal leaver to supporter of a second referendum (and lately revocation) is documented on Twitter. He's influenced a lot of remainers and appears in one of the most recent remainiacs podcast episodes.

    Does his opinion matter? Does anyone's? I think what's interesting is the fact that he's pinpointed many tropes of leaver thinking (particularly liberal) from a sympathetic point of view, but also some of the cognitive errors involved. He takes plenty of potshots at the other side too.

    Right, so he can't make his mind up and he is on twitter posting about it. You can't make this stuff up. When did reasoned argument and evidence fly out of the window.

    I think critical thinking should be made part of the national curriculum. It's clear even the technically inclined members of our esteemed website have trouble thinking logically.

    At least you didn't say he was on Instagram and has lost 400 lbs and we should make him our pan-sexual leader on all things political.

    Where did you get the 'he can't make his mind up' bit? I suggest you read a few of his threads and see if your facile assumption that he can't engage in reasoned argument with evidence holds up. Spoiler - it really doesn't. What a bizarre and self-satisfied post.
