One big mistake they've made is in assuming that Brexit means Brexit. It's tautologitous bollocks. Remain was simple - we just stay in the EU. Brexit meant 'fuck the forrin bastards!', 'Ooh, £350 million a week for the NHS sounds good', 'I'll just give the establishment a bit of a fright', 'I don't want straight bananas!', and eleventy thousand other things.

As time goes on, more and more people are coming to realise that a Tory/UKIP 'hard Brexit' is not in our collective interest. The swivel-eyed xenophobes will never accept anything less than a diamond-hard Brexit; but they're a minority.

Starmer's already pushing the EEA option as much as he's able, although given the flux in Labour, he may well "clarify" within a few hours. Regardless, since the overwhelmingly-Remain establishment now scent their chance, the calls can only grow.
