The Remain vote was statistically unwinnable.

In two post 9/11 and pre UKIP European elections we had seen 5-6% of the electorate vote for an extreme right wing party. Every one of them a leaver.

If you assume the rest of the country was split fairly evenly then that is 47% vs 53% before the Remainers get their boots on.

If you add the fact that the 1m ish Greens combined with what remains of the to-the-left-of-a-Guardian-editorial constituency were split (fairly evenly I imagine) then there was no chance of bridging that gap. None. Even without LBC, Sky, the Mail and the Express et al doing their best to drive us back to the 30s.

I can't say I figured that out beforehand but looking back I can't see how any other outcome was possible in a country naturally inclined towards a conservatism of the Thatcher variety.
