There was a lot of defeatist talk around last night, in the media and online, from pundits about giving up on No Deal (just as No Deal is taking off like fire amongst the greater public).
My reply to this is twofold.
(1) The surest way to scupper No Deal is to start talking in this defeatist way, when it is fact time to seize the day. Stand up and be counted, and stop giving up just because the opposition is talking a good game.
(2) The public has its own mind and it isn’t listening to pundits any more. This has gone beyond commentators. It’s gone beyond the power of the chattering classes disapproving of Brexit. If it is driven to it, the public will sweep over Parliament like a tsunami reducing a town to matchsticks.
