At this point the Leavers are running a heavy-duty propaganda campaign to pin the looming economic, etc.,  debacle caused by Brexit on the EU.  The only thing they care about is who gets blamed for the catastrophe in the puny little minds of 35% of the population since that's enough to keep them in power under the existing FPTP system.

The Remaining opposition is Left in disarray ... can't get their message across as bully Boris demands the air waves 😖
