Lost the debate

Last night’s “debate” certainly achieved one thing, if comments from my family down south are anything to go by.

It showed people in the rest of the UK what our potential leaders might be like, ie unstatesmanlike, willing to flaunt untold wealth, a morally superior race, and ready to employ a god-
given right to dictate to a foreign ­country. The hope of any willingness to embrace a currency union has gone, and I suspect they will be ready to wave us goodbye.

It’s not really a good idea to plan to start on bad terms with a new neighbour.
