The very concept of self-governance has become so alien to the political establishment that the simple answer: ‘the UK will determine its own fate, as it did for over a century, and as most countries on the planet do’ has become less obvious among the warbling political elite than the perverse concept that a multilingual political union instead represents the absolute.

The European Union, with its shaky currency and doom-destined economic non-plan, is the entity facing the greatest uncertainty.
