He's rebranding Brexit (and the reasons lots of people voted for it). It's true, there have been some promising shifts towards immigration in some polls, but does that stay around when people realize that there's still going to be a lot of immigration?

I see George has vaulted from Lexit to Kipperism there. He's quite the one for pulling different strands together- see also anti-imperialism and despotism.

Goodwin shown up by his former co-author. The exchange BTL suggests they won't be co-authoring much in the immediate future.

No they won't Ford at least shows he's not up Johnson's arse.

Good interview on Joe with Paul Mason talking about Lexiters like Galloway; they don’t want to do the heavy lifting in Labour heartlands on defence and security. Can Corbyn or Galloway be trusted to run the security services, army or the police to keep you safe? No but they’ll indulge voters about how Brussels bureaucrats and immigrants are bad so they think that will get them over the line.

The Left generally can be some of the worst "populists" about. The amount of time I've wasted trying to explain the way rail works, for instance. Done far too much of that.

Jez to his immense credit didn't go there with "immigrants ruining your wages", one genuine slip aside talking about posted workers. But he doubtless knew he had a problem on Defence and hoped it would go away if he promised more big spending (paid for by somebody else).
