Desperate Dave makes another appeal from the steps of No 10: "Brits don't quit", he says. An odd claim having surrendered so much to Brussels. He also says that we should vote for our children's future. I agree. Brexit is a vote for their future. To regain our sovereignty before we are swamped by irreversible changes brought about by people who can not tell the difference between race and ideology.
UKIP could prove to be the nail in the coffin for Brexit because of a re-hashed Conservative Party poster campaign which Remain have cynically turned to their advantage following the sad killing of Jo Cox MP. Stephen Kinnock's reference to the tragedy in his Common's tribute when he said that Jo Cox would be "disgusted" was in particularly poor taste when his family has done remarkably well out of their European connections after failing so badly in British politics. Persuading people to vote out of emotion rather than facts is a regrettable act of desperation which is to be deplored.
Win or lose I would expect David Cameron to stay on as Prime Minister. Despite what many troublemakers have suggested to grab a catchy headline, the best person to negotiate exit if electors vote that way is he who caused the problem in the first place. Conversely it should be up to him to salve the wounds he has caused. Stability is the order of the day, not more upheaval.
In my view, the person who got us into this mess should sort it out whether we are IN or OUT. So win or lose, over to you Dave.
