Anyone who tells you what's going to happen is guessing. But, given that it's quite likely to be a close vote, I doubt anything will really be settled. the post-referendum politics will be a lot more interesting, but hopefully more civilised, than that which preceded it.

What makes you think, in your infinite wisdom, progressives here don't know that?
Hint, hint, rifek: Just because people pay lip service to bipartisanship in the context of a media environment during the twilight of the Reagan coalition doesn't mean they actually think it's realistic or give a shit.
And I've been trying to tell people like you that for years in re: Obama. Contra the assertions of his being naive, and the bizarre notion among some on the left that if you just scream loud enough and act like some sort of really sad wannabe-Bolshevik that the filibuster will disappear and ponies will rain from the sky, nobody in the trenches is, or ever was, under any illusions.
In fact, it's the folks who pimp themselves as the populist saviors and refuse to listen to the rest of us -- when we observe that, really, Trump's rise (and the GOP's rise since the late-'60s) is just a function of racism and bigotry rather than this horseshit about trade and immigration-as-it-relates-to-wages -- who are actually naive.
Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
That may be the case, guys, but let's try and keep things as civilised as possible here. It is possible to make either case without insulting those taking the other view.
