Wrong is the new right

I see that the pound is falling against other major currencies as polls show that sentiment in the UK has swung slightly toward favouring exiting the EU. This is ironic since the political figures promoting this side of the argument have spent a ton of media cycles trying to convince us that an EU exit won't have any material effect on macro economic factors, i.e. things like the relative value of our currency.

I really hope that the main Brexit mouthpieces like Gove and Johnson get caught jumping a queue or abusing an animal (ideally a small pug) of some kind in the next few weeks. I despair that this is the only thing that's going to set the British public against them, facts and expert opinion doesn't seem to be working; we seem to require a reality TV ad hominem showdown, and on that bombshell etc.
