No more Mr Nice Guy

As Marcus Brigstocke has learnt to his cost, Brexit is probably the most polarising topic in British politics for a generation. (For this reason we’ve tended to underemphasise it within these commentaries.) As a reminder to anyone who has been living under a rock for the past 18 months, on 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. The outcome was relatively close, but conclusive. 17.4 million (51.9%) voted to Leave; 16.1 million (48.1%) voted to Remain. Remain lost, so we are out.
