Shit. I had no idea about that.
Well, not like much can be done now other than to cross your fingers and hope common sense prevails.

Farage backing the possibility of a second referendum now. I wonder how it would go, no doubt we'd all vote the same way again because we're a country of thickos.

Interesting that he's suggested it though, I wonder if it's simply because he can't stand being out of the limelight and now that Trump hasn't given him a cushy job in the US he's desperate to get some more attention back here. Or perhaps he's realised that in a years time he's going to lose his fat MEP wages and doesn't want to be remembered in British history as one of the most hated men of the century, so he's all up for a second vote to turn things around. Doubtful, either way I'd rather he just crawled into a hole somewhere and nobody ever paid him any attention ever again. He's one of the few people who I wouldn't mind seeing crucified and hung up outside Parliament if things go completely tits up next year.

I think it's almost exclusively about him getting himself back in the news.

Also a handy distraction from the London analysis released today saying that we stand to lose £50bn of investment and half a million jobs over the course of a decade if we lean towards a no deal scenario.
