Brexit 1975

Brexit has totally taken over politics, it's depressing and confusing and I can't think of anything to say about it which won't turn into nonsense by this evening.

So I suggest listening to this fascinating 15 minute piece which was on Radio 4 this afternoon. It's about the last time there was a brexit referendum, in 1975. The parallels are kind of unsurprising, but remarkable all the same:
