There, fixed it.

Bookies' odds simply reflect how people are betting. If more people bet that remain will win then the odds on remain winning shorten and those on leave winning lengthen. They don't really say anything about how people will actually vote only about how people think other people will vote.
I believe it's too close to call, Tim.

But wasn't it the leader of the remain campaign, Cameron, who said the UK would prosper outside the UK, before he reformed it of course.Kilkis wrote:But the Leave campaign have told the UK electorate that it is going to be so much better out of the EU. Who am I to doubt the Leave campaigners. They didn't say it might be. They didn't say they didn't know. Everything Leave promised is a cast iron certainty. They said so loudly and often. Surely you don't doubt the pronouncements of the side you supported, Filippos?
The Leave campaigners told me that, free of EU constraints, they could negotiate beneficial trade deals with the rest of the world. When remainers said it could take years and years to negotiate trade deals the Leave campaigners told me that was rubbish. You could negotiate deals in a couple of years. Surely they wouldn't have lied to me would they? I am sure I can look forward to trade deals being signed with a large number of non-EU countries in the next two to three years. I cannot wait to see what India, Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand etc are so desperate to buy from the UK? I am sure we can look forward to the Current Account deficit being wiped out and becoming a surplus in no time at all. Golden times ahead.
