Malcolm Baker is deluding himself

Malcolm Baker is deluding himself. Although he explained himself well in the end and turned out to be quite a reasonable guy, I was spitting at the tv when I saw him accost Tim Farron as he did this week. I'm sorry, but he, and other out-voters, manifestly did not understand what they were voting for. Yes, the EU is corrupt and badly in need of reform, but excluding ourselves from it was not the solution. We have now cut ourselves off from our neighbours; we no longer get a say in how our biggest, most vital marketplace is run. Thee reduced trade will lead to reduced national income, leading to less tax income. Services will need to be cut, benefits lost. People will soon be suffering. At least in europe we could try to reform it; outside of it, we are utterly irrelevant - a slowly starving irritation off the north coast of an important world power. Would any informed person have voted for that? I think not.
