"The ill-thought-out ideas emanating from the hard Brexiters are alarming and unpleasant. These people know only what they do not like. They have little idea how to replace the hard-won principles and institutions they traduce. They convey an undertone of intolerance and xenophobia. They are a testament to what looks increasingly like a retreat from Britain's liberal, inclusive and open-minded tradition and a return to a narrow, delusional world of Little England"

Actually Britain is and continues to be a far more tolerant and sensible place than you think, if only you could think a bit harder.
