A Statement Of The Obvious that we British, in our collective arrogance and wilful ignorance, seem incapable of grasping:
The rules of a club I join then wish to leave are made by the club not by me.
re Brexit: "Just a polite reminder to British exceptionalists that our only decision will be whether to accept or reject whatever the EU27 offer us." ~ Seb Dance UK MEP
In our collective defence, the Single Market and Customs Union (and so much more required for an informed referendum vote) were rarely (never?) mentioned by the instigator, PM David Cameron, nor by "The Brexit 5", Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson, Iain Duncan-Smith, Michael Gove, Jacob Rees-Mogg and their Brexiteer fellows.
Quick, someone call a statistician. Sorry, we can't ... they're experts!
