YouGov have tweeted the result of a poll that asked if we were right or
wrong to have voted leave in the referendum.
Result - 44% Leave, 45% Remain.
Astonishingly close, still, and Hannan has piped up with an interesting
The Remain campaign is still going strong, everywhere we look,
Leave Campaign packed up shop when the result of the referendum was
Yet still the result this week, a year and a half later, was 44% Leave,
That would be Daniel Hannan the "diehard Brexiter" so hardly an
It's simply not true that the Leave campaign has packed up shop. The
Leave campaign is represented by the Government, by the Opposition
and by numerous pundits, and of course by Nigel Farage continually
offering his opinions.
I can't find a link to that latest poll that you've mentioned. It
sounds plausible but is there a detailed analysis of the figures?
The Leave campaign is FAR from being over. For a start, LBC provide
you really think that LBC is a mainstream provider of news/analysis for
the "normal" person?
You need to define "the normal person".
Someone who does not live in London for a start. Someone who has the
news on the telly or Radio 2 or 4 at tea time or on the telly later in
the evening. Someone who reads the BBC website, and who looks at the
news paper sites in general.
The Daily Mail website gets the most hits world wide apparently.
A phone-in show on LBC? Not so much. That is entertainment, not news.

My news come from the TV and national newspapers. I don't look
Don't you understand the meaning of "for a start"? It means that this is
just one of many examples - in this case, examples of where (and how)
the Leave campaign is continuing unabated (but which, for some reason,
you decided to delete totally).
You are missing the point - which is what is going on around us without
having to go looking for it? What are the headlines on the news? What is
being reported on the front pages of the papers? Who are the guests on
This is not about someone having an obscure radio show that you have to
go out of your way to listen to. How many non-London people have even
heard of LBC?
Meanwhile - front page on Brighton and Hove's The Argus ->

You openly admit that your news comes from the TV and national
newspapers, and you don't look anywhere else - but there's also a lot of
debate on the radio, Throughout the day, on LBC, the 'unfinished
business' of Brexit is a frequent topic (either directly or indirectly)
- and possibly, to a lesser extent, it is on other stations. However,
LBC is the only station that gives Nigel Farage 6 hours per week of
phone-in time - and a heck of a lot of this is about Brexit. He's an
absolutely eloquent speaker and (especially for those who are already of
a certain persuasion) skilled at convincing listeners that Brexit is
what we want. I seriously suggest that you (and everyone else) try and
have a listen to him - but do so at your own risk!
The fact you have to try to persuade people to listen to this show tells
you how interested most of us are in LBC - which is not very.
