I’d suggest this short extract on what the young think of Brexit – as well as why the whole thing is so inordinantly stupid – is worth a couple of minutes watch:
We're talking to young people on our stalls in #Cornwall and they tell us how important the EU is to them. Many didn't even get to vote in 2016. Time to give them back control of their future with a #PeoplesVote!
We'd love to see @Femi_Sorry in Cornwall!

Would that the BBC in general would give this lovely and oh so coherent chap much more air time… He, it was, a while ago, who told John Redwood on air that Redwood had wanted to get out of the EU since before he, Femi, was born, but still had no idea how to do it – whereupon Redwood said he’d not agreed to be set up in a broadcast against someone like that and refused to continue the interview.
Femi’s efforts are now all the more essential when, not only is BMW mini plant due to close for a month post Brexit, the ‘Guardian’ is suggesting both UK and US right wing think tanks are campaigning for agreement on “a free trade agreement that would loosen government controls on capital and data flows and be “more liberalising than any other free trade agreement in the world.”
That makes, even the EU, look like a welcome, safe haven….
