    Much as I dislike Farage, I have to grudgingly admit that he actually seems to operate more on principle than for gain. That he is genuinely trying to do what will get Britain out of the EU.

    Starting a sentence "even Farage can see..." doesn't bode well for what follows. It's akin to "I'm not racist but..." or "with respect..."

  9. Is voting BP likely to make Brexit more of less likely?

    As I see it, BP's best hope are Labour-Leave constituencies. On the face of it that's good for Leavers. However I wonder if BP MPs would be more likely to vote against Boris' deal, wanting No-Deal,...
