I’m on @RemainiacsCast here with @rosamundmtaylor @IanDunt @Dorianlynskey (just after @Andrew_Adonis) arguing that remainers need to be clear on what *they* understand democracy to be and their obligation to give people the governance that they want. https://t.co/Cdmgb5YwPx

My latest, in The Independent today.
1) leaving the EU could work
2) deciding to do so with a referendum guarantees it won’t & will also be damaging
3) using a 2nd referendum to exit #Brexit would make a v bad situation even worse
4) Exit-Brexit is a job for parliament alonehttps://t.co/c4mgZacdsf

I’ve written a piece for Left Foot Forward saying more-or-less this in more detail. You can read it here
