Theresa May: will she deliver a Brexit paradise on June 8th 2017?

“On the day that Theresa May triggered article 50, YouGov published a survey of the things people whould like brought back after Britain has left the EU. Top of the list was the death penalty, with 52% of those who voted to leave wishing to see its return. Other things that leavers were keen on were the return of the dark blue passports, pre-decimal currency, imperial measures, smoking in pubs and corporal punishment in schools. The idea that voting to leave the EU was a vote for an exciting new world of 21st century sovereignty, rather than a desire to head back to a nostalgic, rose-tinted vision fo the 1950s and 1960s Britain, is harder to sustain.”
