In mylast blog, I suggested that the United Kingdom’s traditional good sense had been overtaken by emotion. That it would have been entirely appropriate for the country to reflect soberly upon its capabilities and challenges, to explore its options, and to review itsrelationships with other powers and institutions –including, of course, the EU.Something that should be done at sensible intervals –perhaps every 10 years, or if external circumstances have greatly changed. Instead of which we had a government bounced into a referendum by a group of agitators, who played upon some genuine grievances but also on imagined ones.
