This isn’t an article about who would win a second EU referendum and why (or why not) I believe that to be the case. That in itself is a prime example of Remainer complacency. No, this runs much deeper than that.
Remainers have started in what looks like their millions to turn away from Corbyn and his promise to consider to look into the possibility of the option of whether or not keeping another EU referendum with Remain as an option “on the table” might be a good idea. This is a positive step. Yet there is much to worried about beyond the wildly Brexity promises now being made by both of the men in the final two to be the next Tory leader.
I don’t wish to be overly churlish about the Lib Dem leadership contest. I like both Ed and Jo and think either will be a decent leader. However, I have to admit that if I had been in a coma for the last year and had only the leadership hustings to go by in terms of trying to guess where the Lib Dems are in the polls, I would guess that the 7 or 8% rating had stayed exactly where it was. Both of the candidates still sound like they are running to lead a fringe party, not one who could even in the current crazy environment win a majority.
