Brexit Question Time

I watched Question Time. The panel is ignorant. I did not enjoy watching the RAF Museum being soiled by this inanity. But we can see now that the tribal lines are drawn. If you want soft Brexit you are a remainer trying to subvert democracy. If you want hard Brexit you are a leaver. The distinctions have no relevance to reality. They've made it a binary debate between an option that doesn't exist and an option that isn't defined.

The line of contention between two tribes is the single market - both of whom have no idea what the single market is. Thus, the debate is pointless. What will be negotiated is wholly separate to the public debate. It is a waste of our time. There is no reason to look to public pundits for information. There is no premium on knowledge - only tribal conformity.
