Brexit finally delivered! Well nearly. House of Lords next.
MPs voted 330 to 231 to proceed with the Withdrawal Agreement Bill and finally deliver Brexit for the UK in an historic moment that went virtually unnoticed because of all the acres of media print about Harry & Meghan.
I guess we (remainers) can't really complain because the wish of the original referendum vote now looks to be finally granted. It is galling though because I'd seen figures like this (and more conclusive) long before Boris got the ball rolling, and I'm sure a second referendum would have turned things around. Too late now of course, best we just get it done with and hope it all turns out for the best. Can't see it myself but there you go...

BMG questioned 1,508 British adults between 8 and 10 January.
A poll of 1,508 people is hardly conclusive proof, though, is it? If it was 15,000 it might be a bit more convincing.
I've seen people conducting polls here in Ipswich from time to time, but they don't pick people at random to talk to. You can see them looking around deciding who to ask. I have never been asked for my opinion.
The results of relatively small polls like that could very easily be swayed by what town or city they're held in, at what time of day they're held, who the people conducting the poll are, and who they choose to interview...
...and no, I'm not suggesting it's deliberately manipulated, but it could be.
