It takes only one puff to bring down Brown’s straw man

The big problem with Brown’s persuasive case against total independence is that no-one is actually arguing for total independence. To call this a straw-man argument is to give it far too much weight – a straw structure does at least take a few huffs and puffs to dismantle. This dishonest construction is more like a delicate sculpture made out of dandelion clocks by the fairies who live at the bottom of the garden.

No voters now thinking again weren’t all fooled during the independence referendum

The vote for a Brexit has changed what it means to be part of the UK, so it’s natural that head-over-heart No voters will be reconsidering their stance.
