On the EU referendum

“It is of course too late now to drain the poison from this campaign, but when the referendum is over – whatever the result – we are going to need to do something to change these Political Rules of Engagement.  We need only look across the Atlantic to the United States – where the political culture is even more cynical and the rules even more firmly entrenched – to see where we risk heading.  I’ve already voted to leave in this referendum, but if I could vote against not just the EU but against political business as usual, I would do so in an instant.” – June 14.

ConHome summary: Modern political campaigning stinks.
