Guess what, guys – the People’s Vote roadshow is coming to a town near you! Are you excited?
Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable is definitely just a normal guy like you, and he’s taking his People’s Vote campaign on the road with fellow normal people Stephen Doughty and Sarah Wollaston.
They’ll be speaking tomorrow at an event in Bristol, where tickets have sold out. That should come as no surprise to anybody who has been to Bristol, before. The last time I was there I saw Antifa stickers plastered all over the city centre, and I felt uncomfortable in any bar I visited. It’s enemy territory, and I feel sorry for the normal, sane people who live there.
The decision to take the People’s Vote campaign on the road is obviously an attempt to show that it isn’t run by out of touch elites. They’ll be going to Edinburgh, Newcastle, Cambridge, Cardiff, and ultimately Liverpool where they will be holding an event alongside the Labour Party national conference.
These people are delusional, and they can’t see it.
In a rare moment of sanity, Owen Jones actually admitted that a second referendum could be potentially disastrous for his side. He believes that the Leave campaign would win it by an even bigger margin, and I suspect he’s right.
After all the fearmongering and the betrayal by our politicians – including a coordinated campaign to force people to change their minds and admit their vote was ill-informed – I think it’s perfectly reasonable to expect the voters to turn out in even greater numbers and tell the establishment to do one.
