The fact that Theresa May was on telly this morning ruling out a second Brexit referendum is being widely reported. Cue condemnation and indignation from anyone who actually values democracy, of course, but in a way it’s a good sign: the fact that she dismisses the idea of a second referendum so strongly shows that support for one is growing. More and more people, irrespective of how they voted two years ago, are realising the utter stupidity of leaving the EU and want the country to change course. If that wasn’t the case, there would be no need for May to say what she said on tv this morning. She is clearly desperate to reassure the outists in her government that their referendum win is safe, lest they give her the boot. This is surely a sign, then, that things are at last going in the right direction, and that Brexit’s days are numbered.
