There are no constituencies in a referendum. You were on the wrong side of the biggest democratic vote in British history.
The biggest confidence trick in British history is what you really mean.
Anyway, we are not destined to get out of this mess. It's the end game all right: in the decline and fall of the British Empire. The break up of the UK is inevitable. Stop moaning and accept the inevitable, pal. You will be sent back Glasgow in due course.
You make a lot of points, though there may be a stewards enquiry as to whether I should "be sent back to Glasgow" - my mum was English.
I have a cunning plan. Sir Dave Brailsford should be put in charge of the wind farms. Marginal gains, low friction, energy efficiency, wind resistance, maximum watts. Within 10 years we'll be knocking out kick ass wind turbines. People trying to sell fossil fuels will be so old hat. It'll be like the industrial revolution all over again.
The Empire will be saved.
