I didn’t review this as it was happening because the sands were constantly shifting. Now it’s all done with and we’ve a new government in place, I think the whole event can be neatly summed up thus: the British public did not ‘clearly want’ or ‘vote’ for or against anything as a conglomerate. Most people probably didn’t even vote for a party they actually wanted to govern. No one really knew what was at stake and nobody got what they wanted. So maybe what we’ve ended up with is the best we could hope for, given our lack of consensus.
