Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Frank, the problem is that your number one and two reasons against Brexit are actually seen as advantages by the Brexiteers.

Yea, but it's not Brexiteers I'm trying to convince, but rather the middle ground who may never have been given any good reasons to support Remain. The problem is the 45 years of anti-EU propaganda has never been properly challenged and even the Remain camp have failed to articulate why remaining is a good idea, beyond the maintenance of a status quo many are dissatisfied with. Lexiteers - left wingers who support Brexit - would be a particular target. In my view they are delusional if they think the UK will be in a better position to fight globalism and inequality outside the EU.

Let's examine "the benefits of the single market" enumerated in the letter. The letter I'm reading lists reasons for UK not to secede. Does your letter say describe "the benefits of the single market" ?
