Quote of the day 6th March 2016

"Imagining that withdrawal from the EU would be like flicking a switch that automatically returns to us complete control of our borders is a fantasy."

(Professor Adam Tomkins in his article "A tale of two unions.")

So many people want to solve a very complex problem with a very easy answer. It never works that way though. It something which I often condemn governments for attempting.
Usually if you try and a solve a complex problem with a simple answer, in reality you end up making the problem even more complex, and whilst you might have a small improvement in one of the symptoms of the problem, you almost always introduce new symptoms which are much worse than the one you eased.
