No blame for EU? If they had given Cameron substantive change we would not be here.

"EU is totally wonderful, modern & trendy & anybody who wants sovereignty is old fashioned!"

2016-06-26 06:08:13

The Tea Party is to the United States as the UKip is to Great Britain.

The best overview of the current disaster in the UK so far

2016-06-26 06:18:15

, accept the result and stop this crying baby, please. Democracy in the UK has at least 800 years.

2016-06-26 06:29:34

a very good historical perspective from William Keegan in the Observer too.

2016-06-26 07:59:24

brilliantly written but incredibly depressing. I'm even thinking of getting into politics to help bring about peace!

2016-06-26 08:23:14

Good editorial. But conclusion is 1sided. The UK is in dire need of political reforms, too! "First past the post", House of Lords?

2016-06-26 08:26:49

For the aloofness of the political elite to change, it takes a major shift of power! A fairer democracy, more leverage for voters.

2016-06-26 09:07:46

some excellent comments BTL too

Reading latest from the Plan Wot Plan lunatics, we'll need Asquith, Lloyd-George, et al, plus half the ministers of the late 19th cent.

2016-06-26 13:47:38

The EU was the scapegoat for a combination of ills.
