Leaving will deliver a tremendous negative economic shock in the short-term to both the UK and the EU. 2. They hope and expect the EU to proceed towards a full fiscal/banking union, a single European army etc. in the medium-term. Manifestly they are prepared only to discuss 1. and not 2., which makes them every bit as dishonest as the gaslighters on the other side.

    James Watson isn't the only Nobel Prize winning scientist to disgrace himself spouting tendentious and offensive rubbish about race and gender. The distinguished physicist William Shockley's career ended in much the same way. Both were brilliant mavericks in their youth who favoured instinct over received opinion; both nurtured an exaggerated sense of their own importance in later life.
