Quote of the day 23rd October 2016

"When people ask me whether I think Project Fear lost us the referendum, I answer that Project Fear did in fact win. Just not ours.

"Our problem is that the other side was much better at fear-mongering.

"Their threats — of mass immigration, Turkey’s membership, and a European army — were far scarier to the British voters than our warnings of an economic slowdown."

(Daniel Korski, deputy director of the policy unit in David Cameron’s government, in a fascinating article, "Why-we-lost-the-brexit-vote" giving the inside story of the Remain campaign from the Number Ten viewpoint.)
