With the Brexit negotiations hitting an impasse, Theresa May is under pressure from Brussels to make yet more concessions. Meanwhile, the ‘People’s Vote’ campaign is keen to tell anyone who will listen that public opinion has changed and Remain is now the mood of the country.
Only as far as Mr S can tell the vast bulk of Brexiteers are still… Brexiteers. Speaking on the Today programme this morning, Michael Caine explained why he is still a Brexiteer in a conversation on optimism:
MC: I’m a Brexiteer myself.
JW: Still are?
MC: Oh yeah, certainly. And people say ‘oh you’ll be poor’, you’ll be this, you’ll be that’. Well, I’d rather be a poor master of my fate than having someone I don’t know making me rich by running it.
Some food for thought…
