In an indication of just how polarised and nonsensical the whole Brexit thing has become, here’s today’s jaw-dropping figure.
In a series of polls, people who backed Leave in the referendum are willing to sacrifice peace in northern Ireland to ensure that Brexit happens.
By huge margins.
Just think about that for a moment. People are willing to go back to the days of hundreds of deaths a year, political assassinations, car bombs and soldiers on the streets just to make sure that the UK doesn’t co-operate with its neighbours.
This isn’t just cherry-picking one result from a larger dataset, oh no.
83% of leave voters in England, 84% of leave voters in Wales and 75% of leave voters in Scotland all thought that Brexit was worth the end of the peace process.
