Why are a supposedly intelligent bunch of people (the Tory electorate) apparently so gullible?
We await the inevitable "fake news ! / project fear believer !" and " this was going to happen three years go, but didn' that proves "project fear !" was just alarmist disinformation" ......mantra replies......unfortunately, since then, as negotiations have deteriorate to being non existent, and a variety of sources have raised similar growing concerns, and lets not forget the resurgence of Gov't plans for a "no deal " departure.......incidentally, that paragon of efficiency , Mr Grayling, in case readers were wondering, could emerge again in these plans...........then it's fair to say the naysayers and those in denial about the ramifications may soon to be eating egg...... and not from a plate
