All-Out War - how Leave won the referendum

There is a fascinating interview on Conservative Home this morning here in which Andrew Gimson talks to Tim Shipman about his book "All out war" on the EU referendum campaign.;

Whether or not you decide to read the book (and it has probably persuaded me to do so,) I think the conversation on the Conservative Home site is interesting and worth reading.

Jim's Simple version of events:

how did the UK vote to leave the EU - well more people crossed the leave box than people who crossed the remain one.

How did the "mainstream" leave campaign win it - well it did not really factor the debate took place online. Though even to those without online access they didn't. It was was more that the "mainstream remain" campaign lost it.
