    Perhaps if they'd concentrated on the positives of Europe rather than explain why Boris and Nigel were the equivalent of east end barrow boys with a bus, they'd have fared better. I also think that they massively underestimated the north-south divide.

    Yeah, like logical arguments would have worked for people who explicitly reject logic because they don’t like the conclusions.

    Both Farage and Boris should have been doing time in jail for being political fraudsters - cleaning up politics from fraudulent lies is one of the top priorities for rejoining EU

    It’s not one off - same group that voted Brexit also generally supports Trump, anti-vaxxers etc - there is consistent pattern that can be distilled down to “idiotism” - it’s not even lack of education, people are rejecting obvious facts and evidence in favour of alternative reality offered by cynical liars like Boris and Farage
