"No, but we are missing him!"
I think this discussion has been devoid of credible, articulate opposition from day one
I had many political disagreements with MtheGM (Mike Grosvenor Myer), but I'd love to have known his opinion on this mess
As with many subjects that interest me nowadays, those who die are seldom replaced - the inevitable effect of ageing, I suppose

One thing that now occurs to me is that whoever wins this fight will have gained a pyrrhic
The damage done to Britain so far will take decades to repair before any attempts to 'stand on our own two feet' can be even thought about - jobs and businesses lost, a divided people, a shattered Parliamentary system and a legacy of hate and bigotry to be swept aside
It is now doubtful that the UK as an entity will survive (no great harm in that in the long run; it was long past its sell-by date)
Wouldn't with that on anyone, but whoever/whatever it is, I hope they come armed with a new broom
