Nevertheless, you won’t find me apologising for belonging to the Brexit camp on the EU Referendum, nor for believing that – despite all efforts by our exasperated politicians and Establishment masters (and mistresses) – ultimately gut feeling may well be as big an influence as logic, facts and figures when it comes to choosing which way to vote on 23rd June.
