Don't know where you got this idea from. Even Daniel Hannan says otherwise.

Re: Brexit discussion

Did love this tweet about Brexit. Probably the best analogy I've seen:

https://twitter.com/PickardJE/status/996821085575434240

Quote:
Brexit fast becoming a holiday which half the family didn’t want to go on and now the car is stuck in a traffic jam and mum and dad are arguing over the map

we seem to have been around the same roundabout a dozen times and its name is customs arrangement

and now someone has suggested a board game

they are arguing over the map because no one brought the map

dad keeps saying how everyone will love Pontins when they get there, it was great back in the day

the first drops of rain are starting to fall

the holiday, like every holiday in the history of holidays, has been more expensive than anticipated

and the cry goes up from the back:

are.
we.
nearly.
there.
yet?

Labour are the family next door who are also going to Pontins which is puzzling when they supposedly don’t like Pontins

it will be dark in a couple of hours

the “transition period” involves a lengthy stay at the Watford Gap service station while dad struggles to change a tyre

mum is silently contemplating divorce but fears the alternative could be worse

one of the kids is googling “Abilene Paradox”

the backseat driving has begun

Dave, who lent the brochure, isn't coming on the trip

the car has no brakes

the kids want cake even though they’ve eaten the cake
.....

And there follows some very amusing responses

Re: Brexit discussion

Except that more than half who expressed an interest did want to go.

It's very funny, a good find. Credit to its author, Jim Pickard of the FT.

Particularly like the lines "Labour are the family next door who are also going to Pontins which is puzzling when they supposedly don’t like Pontins" and "Dave, who lent the brochure, isn't coming on the trip"

Re: Brexit discussion

Just need the rest of the country to follow suit
Quote:
Northern Ireland would vote more strongly to remain in the EU if there was another Brexit poll, a study has suggested.
A total of 69 per cent would favour Remain if there was another referendum compared with 56 per cent in the result two years ago, the UK in a Changing Europe project said.
Catholics were more likely to support a united Ireland if there was a “hard exit” in which the UK left the customs union and single market.
The Irish border is one of the most vexed questions facing negotiators who aim to strike a deal by autumn, before Britain’s withdrawal from the EU next year.
