      Very good summary.

      One thing though, I personally know many lifelong Labour voters (who loath the Tory party), who voted Brexit and if anything their resolve has hardened. These include people in their 20's and 30's, some of whom are graduates. The main reason, hating the changes in the UK they saw before their very eyes in mass immigration, with a secondary reason a dislike of the EU apparatus.

      They weren't converted by a £10B to the NHS battle bus. They were already converted.

      In the quite liberal world of NSC, London and Brighton, I think we live in a bit of a bubble, not taking on board the radical changes in the UK aware from the media narrative. I welcome all the Poles, Somalis, etc who came to the UK to work, but there are huge swathes of the UK thoroughly angry about that.

      It's a complex nation and world at this moment in history.
      Oh, quite, I agree with all that.

      Indeed it is as complex as it could be with young and old, labour and conservative, middle class and hoary handed sons of toil, examples of each who support remain or support Brexit, some mildly and some vehemently. Almost random.

      In fact this randomness is absolutely the best reason for not Brexiting. Brexit is change. When there is no clear theme about the viewpoint, it is clear that everyone is guessing. I think I posted several years ago that Brexit was a choice between something we are familiar with and may not like, and the complete unknown. If I were out hiking and came across a dark void on a left fork and a bumpy path on the right fork, I would choose the path and not leap into the void.

      I am not a gambler yet my whim to Brexit occasionally kicked in - late at night after lary drinking. But in the morning I was sober. Brexit is like a car won by drunkards in a late night bit of gambling, and they are now trying to drive it when sober the next morning, having written it off the night before. Sad really. Never attempt to drive a new bought car when drunk, especially if the previous owner has chained the bugger to a block of concrete.

      But there's a critical additional recent reason for Corbyn's stance, touched on by @Harry Wilson's tackle.

      Labour's shock 40% good showing at the last General Election, was analysed by a team of political scientists from across several universities. The swing they achieved was through mopping up millions of UKIP voters, by promising a full EU exit.

      Corbyn and McDonnell are not going to throw their chances of winning the next election and the one after that, by ditching their explicit message to those key voters.

      The election will not be decided in Islington, Hackney, Kemp Town and Lambeth, but in those key marginals in the Midlands and North, where there's very strong anti-EU and anti-immigration sentiment.
      And there we have the crux of the matter. A bunch of idiots on either side, grasping for power, and never mind the destruction caused to the people who they are supposed to represent. What a shower of b******s.

      Correct because it’s a stupid decision to leave.
      Here we go again. Opinion (and a minority one at that) being put forward as fact. Sadly it's that same attitude among a vast majority of MPs (Lords and Commons alike), not to mention the very powerful Whitehall mandarins, that has made negotiating Brexit so difficult - the government has it's hands tied in the negotiations, not by the EU, but by the British remainers.
      Don't blame May (and even more so don't blame the millions who voted leave) - the blame lies full square at the feet of those that have done their best to hamper our negotiators and sabotage the Brexit process from day one.

      Yep. It was these toffs who worked so hard to trick hard working people. They are a party heading for a big fall the next time they have a nerve to come to the country. Of course they will leave that as long as possible because they know they are in the shit
