Oh Brexit, will you ever be “done”? Will we ever be able to move on and say it all worked out in the end?
Alas, it doesn’t look that way, not by a long shot.

It was down to host Martin Daubney to reveal the results, which he did so, initially with smug jubilation.

The poll’s verdict came just hours after London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced, in no uncertain terms, what he thought of the UK’s departure from the European Union.

By some strange twist of fate, Brexit was inadvertently evoked by Elon Musk earlier in the day thanks to a poll on Donald Trump.
The Twitter boss asked users to vote on whether the former president’s account should be reactivated, and the “yes” votes beat the “no”s by 51.8 per cent to 48.2.
