Sorry for the silence. Due to travel, family, despair at the way things are going (except in Austria), and the feeling that I’ve nothing new or original to say. But I’ll be back.
In the meantime this (below) seems to me a brilliant strategy, albeit a painful one, for us Remainers. – Don’t try to row back on the referendum, however unsatisfactory it may seem as an expression of the established ‘will of the people’, taken as it was at one tiny moment of a very confused and difficult time. Let Nigel, Boris, Govey and Co. hang themselves with their own petards. Don’t make it easy for them, with a ‘soft Brexit’, which they won’t appreciate in any case. Then rub it in; and hope for a return to sanity.
