    Nigel - the sort of man who blasts undemocratic EU and then celebrates in EU democratic elections.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    So a swing to parties with clear Brexit strategy and who will look after the planet.
    Setting everything on fire and walking away might be a clear strategy, but it is not in the interests of the citizens.

    After everything is on fire, what is their strategy then?

    Pretty even split. The only clear message is that any centre ground or compromise has disappeared as a viable electoral strategy. It’s all or nothing now. No deal or remain/revoke. Labour will need to shift to a second ref. The Tories will need to shift to No Deal as an inevitable outcome, with the fig leaf of a renegotiation in the mean time. Whatever happens, there’s no end in sight. The culture war continues.

    It will be decided by 1 vote, a decisive majority.

    Nobody wants to leave the EU without a deal.

    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    ahem - it seems those in Scotland have a different opinion. Roll on independence from the rUK.

    "Everybody" who voted for BNP/UKIP/NF/BP voted because they want a return to The Troubles, using your logic.

    Remain should have to achieve 55%, to allow for those Leavers who are intellectually incapable of completing a ballot paper to reflect their wishes.
