Well I could agree with you, Nigel. I would just say that a decision to join is neither irrevocable nor black-and-white (we could join with conditions, as indeed we did, and Mrs Thatcher strained to maintain that exceptionalism, for example). The decision to leave was irrevocable and meant that there were no terms we could dictate, as we are now finding. We might have been told that there were all sorts of things we can now control. Sadly, it wasn't really true, was it? One little virus...
