    Alex Tsakiris, host of Skeptiko, interview by Gayle Kimball

    One man’s ‘knife edge’ is another man’s ‘total fucking mess’ I suppose. I’m just surprised you think ‘the people’ knew what they were voting for. Plenty have said they hadn’t realised the consequences. At best it was a yes/no vote in a non-binary situation.
