I think even some of his supporters might remove the "r" from "card".

I think many Australians have little detailed knowledge about the EU and its effects (negative or positive) on the UK. I agree that more recent polling would be useful. My Australian relatives are either pro-Brexit or "don't know" I think.

Examples? My husband's family are from there. I am not aware of any PFI scandals. There is seasonal employment but not a lot of gig economy in the modern sense. Banks and builders may be involved in the repeated attempts to get a marina built (for all the well-heeled yachting enthusiasts who want to come to Brid - that is a slight joke) but I don't know how far. However there are NHS failings.

"most Tories who voted in the referendum cast their vote strategically not out of conviction" really? I guess it defends on how you define "most" (what proportion?) and "Tories" (activists? members? voters?).

Re your first sentence, I feel I cannot recommend medicine as a career choice for my children, given the moral quandaries they would inevitably end up in.

Possibly, the Harry Potter-style "Ministry of Justice" should not have been carved out of the Home Office (thus separating courts from police) in the first place.
