I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

If course we are talking prophesies rather than lies (politicians cannot lie but might might be guilty of inexactitude). Sadly many prophesies by Remain were proven false as they didn't happen. The same is not true of the Leavers as that is yet to happen.

As for your analogy, No Deal could or would be a roll of a dice, that too is yet to occur. The odds of a 6 or 1-5 is indeed a load but who is to say whether 4 or 5 would be bad?

Remember the Referendum was a 3.05 and our MPs only managed 2.99.
