    Let's hope he is right. Nobody wants a scenario where they are worse off or the economy is worse off than the status quo. What people need to see to sway their minds is a plan, just a plan of the precautions we are taking incase it does all go pear shaped. It could be argued that, if things will be fine then why the need to take precautions. Only time will tell.

    The "enemy" is not seen as the EU, but Tory disrupters like Hammond and Grieve

    If things will just be fine, what’s the point? Where’s the great Brexy bonuses?

    A volley of deep fried Mars bars followed by umpteen tins of Irn Bru should see him off... :grin:

    Worth a read, perhaps it takes one of their own to admit how insufferable the 'chattering classes' really are...

    Some of the self-satisfied, London cultural elite are finally beginning to understand that it isn't enough simply to preach to people what's good for them.

    Not that the Emma Thompson's and Cumberbatch's will listen

    I've read several times on here how some consider those on the left to be 'full of hate'. This is ironic really, because the same people will virtually explode with rage at the mere mention of Owen Jones's name, or Russell Brand's, to name but two. I can almost hear your teeth grinding Goldie, as you type the names of Emma Thompson and 'Cumberbatch'. Strange world.

    People who either know deep down it’s **** or are a bit thick don’t like being told it’s ****. I can live with that.

    Thompson and Cumberbatch are good actors, and have a right to an opinion like the rest of us. But when they start preaching from their diamond encrusted soap boxes, it puts my back up. I'm sure I'm not the only one

    If only more entitled posh boys went into acting and fewer into politics, we might have better representation all round.

    Not that many posh prime ministers in recent times though. Blair and Cameron are the only ones to spring to mind

    Maitliss cannot hide her EU bias on Newsnight. Aghast at the Leaver (who’s a knob, by the way) and leading the witness as far as the Remainer Old Dutch is concerned.

    Or Oliver Letwin. We really are living in a mixed up crazy world when someone like him can be called an extremist.
