Running with that notion - those lying about there being massive problems after Brexit are now being proven correct are they not? The fundamental challenge the Remain side was that their only option was to try to point out the benefits of the status quo whilst preaching caution - never the 'sexy' option - whilst the Leave had the benefit of being able to paint pictures of a multiple different futures in which everyone's lives would be better. Remain meant more of the same, whilst Leave was a hotchpotch of scenarios and promises with little detail to back any of up - Leave just had to persuade people that at least one of these competing scenarios would benefit them (from my estimation, there was at least 6 or 7 fundamentally different scenarios that came under the umbrella of 'Brexit') Edited September 22, 2021 by Davie P Roachmill and Evil Inky 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
