Fascinating (and I think very plausible) read about what might have happened if the result of the EU referendum had been the other way around. In a way we would be in a fairly similar situation now, a deeply divided country with a destroyed political culture. Showing that the real culprit for the mess we're in isn't Theresa May (although she contributed heavily) but David Cameron, who instigated the referendum in the first place for party political reasons, to unite his divided country. And failed abysmally. Quite possibly destroying his party (I think there's a good chance the Tories will split up) and breaking up the UK (I think if they get their referendum there's a good chance Scotland will leave the UK. Northern Ireland being reunited with the Republic of Ireland I think is also possible).
