Referendum blame game

Theresa May has rightly been criticised for her handling of Brexit negotiations.

She wasted time pursuing a “This is My Agreement” policy rather than having discussions with ministers and all MPs in order to formulate plans for those negotiations.

At least equally to blame is David Cameron. Cameron went ahead with a simple “Yes Remain” or “No, Leave” referendum, having ignored his advisers who suggested a public opinion poll first.

The results would likely have resulted in a referendum with more options from which he would have been able to formulate plans.

Many demonstrating now to remain will no doubt include some no-voters!
