Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

These are relatively intelligent, fairly well-informed people.

Are they truly delusional? Or is this a snow-job?

Selling a facade of a deal to a low information tabloid reading british public while, behind the scenes, laying the groundwork for their Shock-Doctrine predator-bankster low wage, low regulation offshore tax haven. They're asking for the impossible to avoid making any sort of deal cos no deal suits them just fine. They have no regard for the well-being of the country, they're conservatives : To the winner, the spoils

too many of those most closely involved will make too much money from this. They've been boasting about how they're gonna clean up.

Religion is full of relatively intelligent, fairly well-informed people. Who are utterly deluded or pretend to be for the sake of power and position.

Some time ago I linked to a J. W. Mason article that made the very reasonable claim that no economic variable is meaningful without specifying how to measure it. On reflection, that is often also true in hard sciences.
And it certainly is true for intelligence.
