You’d have to be insane to sign a deal with the EU at this stage — 4 Comments

  1. It occurs to me that in the event of another referendum (which of course is possible) the Remain camp have very little ammunition left. They can predict economic collapse (again) but their opponents can just point to the last lot of failed predictions (180 degree fails too). They can hardly sell the EU as a wonderful supportive partner we should be sticking with, after the way everyone has seen them behave, including their lovely President, who might have well had to be invented by the Leave campaign had he not existed in the flesh anyway.

    And looking forward we’ve now had 2 years of pronouncements by all the EU leaders as to where they see the EU going in the future, and its hardly anything that will fill even a Remainer with enthusiasm unless they’re a swivel eyed United Sates of Europe cheerleader, and while there’s a few of them, there’s not enough to win a national referendum. Add in the power of a ‘Which bit of Leave didn’t you ****s get?’ slogan, and the chance for the masses to stick two fingers up to the elites again, and I’d hate to be in the first meeting of the Remain Campaign Mk2, trying to come up with ideas for how to convince the UK public to back Remain.

  2. The issue is which question would be asked. Obviously the Remaniacs will be pressing for a choice between the Robbins Capitulation and Remain. Failing that, a 3 question ballot, hoping to split the Leave vote between WTO and Robbins, letting Remain win by default.

  3. Jim – the qualifications for those allowed to vote in the second referendum (if there is one) will not be the same as in the 2016 one. I think I’m right in saying that the qualifications to be allowed to vote in the referendum were, effectively, more or less identical to those for a general election. However, I fear that, in the event of a second referendum, the “electorate” will be expanded to include 16/17 year-olds, all expats holding UK passports and non-national residents of the UK (including, what, 3 million EU nationals). The Remainers will make sure this time.
