Forty Years On

And on, and on, and on, and on, and on.

"It was only supposed to be a free trade area."

Thus do they justify their having ignored the clear, precise, and entirely accurate advice of Michael Foot, Peter Shore, Tony Benn and Barbara Castle, first in 1975, and then again in 1983.

But that lot is starting to die out.

For the rest of my life, I expect the pub bore standby to be that "The students voted twice" at the 2017 General Election.

Or at the 2017 General Elections, as the case may be.

The total absence of evidence will be bellowed as the proof.

Indeed, that has already started.
