This has been a proble all the way through the process, right from when Cameron first mooted the idea of the referendum. Almost nobody really understood what was at stake let alone what the sticking points or the issues were.
Nor did anybody ever explain it to them. In fact, how could anybody explain it, simply because nobody in either campaign really understood it either. Not that the campaign was ever about the facts of membership, just the psychodram between Cameron and Boris.
So, we are at a point, with 6 months to go, with a foreign secretary who doesn't realise that Britain is an island which imports an awful lot of food from that mysterious place just across a sea he's discovered he's named the Channel.
We also have a minister for Ulster in charge of sorting out the border who doesn't know the difference between Unionists and republicans.
And a Cabinet which, collectively, doesn't know its arse from its elbow
