    One thing I can safely say is the support for brexit in academia and in the business world is weak and there have been figures pulled out that don't take into account economic costs (the £350 million a week doesn't take into account probable costs). The brexit people within these have interesting reasons I can respect, but remain is the safer option from analysing and comparing reports, figures, etc.

    IMO the Leave campaign might have been stronger if there wasn't as much petty nationalism, racism, so much focus on immigration (to the point of ignoring important figures, dismissing a lot of quantitative data as 'project fear', the impact of an ageing population, the financial crisis, etc) and Farage, Johnson and Gove weren't involved.

    What a load of horsesh*t. He, and the remain campaign, haven't fact checked our/my analysis and found it to be wanting. So sad
