Day one of the Euro Ref; huge cannons of Remain looking too strong
So Day One of the first full Referendum campaign in review:
- Cameron slams Boris in the Commons, able to deploy all his troops and skills from the front bench
- The Pound crashes as traders see a quick buck to be made, literally and this is universally portrayed as the markets considered reaction to Brexit
- No 10 musters thirty six FTSE bosses to write in the Times in support of their low wage Polish and Romanian staff (not sure they put it quite like this but anyway...)
One day, three huge blows. I note the BBC too is way offside for Remain.
As much as I wish it, I can't see Leave having a hope at the moment; the regiments behind Remain are awesome in comparison to Leave.
However, there are still events, a large migrant crisis in the Spring/Summer may swing things but for now I would expect the polls to move back to 60/40 Remain.
