How was it binary?

Stay in or leave on wto would be binary. Stay in or "change" is not binary because the change could be anything - it's STILL unknown now.
If we were to stay in it wouldn't be how we were before and if we were to go back now and ask to stay in the changes would have to be huge in order for them to let us back in. So the argument now of those asking for a 'People Vote' which includes Remain is just as misleading as the initial ref.

What about tinned beans, tin foil and candles?
Sleep easy on that one, Switzerland have some in a lockup garage they said we can have, ditto chocolate, cuckoo clocks and little penknives.
I always wanted one of those knives as a boy. Rightly, my parents denied me one, given how clumsy I was (and am) and so happily I have all my fingers and thumbs. :)

from Brendan O'Neill, spiked magazine:

"The Independent Group of breakaway Labour and Tory MPs says it wants to shake up politics. How has it shaken things so far? Well, it has increased the number of political organisations in the House of Commons who either don’t want to or can’t deliver Brexit from six to seven. A true revolution! This is the reality of the democratic deficit in the UK: aside from the DUP, and even they’re flakey, there is no party that represents the most populous political sentiment in UK history – the vote for Brexit. The parties either push for Remain by another name (Tories and Labour) or for the delaying / thwarting of Brexit entirely (the rest of them). Politics needs a shake-up all right – but it won’t come from any of the dinosaurs, doublespeakers or hypocrites who currently make up the UK establishment."

i think that viewpoint tallies pretty well with their media profile: https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/spiked-magazine/

Dispatches: The Brexit Millionaires - Channel 4, 8.00pm

Antony Barnett looks into those who make money from the uncertainty surrounding Brexit. From consultancy firms to politicians who charge large fees for speeches and of course the gamblers making big bucks on the financial markets, it’s a timely eye-opener. SH

Hopefully we can have another war in Europe.

Just not too sure my uniform still fits.
