I have removed my ‘EU’ page from the menu. I started with the best of intentions about giving an unbiased commentary on any lies, dodgy stats or logical contradictions I detected in the data put out by the opposing campaigns, while I decided how to vote.
I couldn’t do it. There was no data I knew was right but I found I distrusted the Brexit camp far more. The Greek ex-Finance Minister asked us to stay and fight for a better EU and that seems the least-bad option on offer. The Brexit folks mostly seem to believe that climate change is an EU plot, so I’m going to assume they’re wrong in their economic guesswork too.
I don’t even see any sign that the row will have made peace in the Conservative Party or shut up UKIP, which appears to have been the main point of the referendum.
