Let's start with the claim of the "remain surge". By the very standards set by the pro-remain Liberal Democrats, this is not the case. A Lib Dem campaign leaflet stated the following:
By stating that a vote for the Conservatives or Labour is a vote for Brexit, the Lib Dems have inadvertently admitted that the majority of the country has once again voted for Brexit. When the vote of the pro-Brexit parties (Labour, Conservatives, Brexit Party, UKIP, TUV, DUP, UUP) is combined, it tallies up to 57.75% compared with the 41.02% of the pro-remain parties (Lib Dem, Green, SNP, Tinge, Plaid, SF, Alliance, SDLP). So the remain vote has gone down from 48% to 41%. Hardly a "remain surge".Your choice on 23rd May:
Vote for Brexit; Conservative, Labour, UKIP or Brexit Party; All of these parties are backing Brexit. A vote for them in this election is a vote to take Britain out of Europe.
Vote to stop Brexit; Liberal Democrats; If you want to stop Brexit, use your vote in this election to back the biggest party in Britain fighting on your side.
So that should look pretty good for the Brexiteers, right? Well, not for those who want to leave the EU without a deal. The combined tally of the parties that favour a no-deal Brexit (Brexit Party, UKIP, TUV) is 34.2%, compared to the 64.57% of the parties that oppose it. This is contrary to the idea that when the British people voted to Brexit, they voted to leave the EU without a deal, and that any form of soft Brexit would be a betrayal of the will of the people™.
In conclusion, both the hard remainers and hard Brexiteers are using the results of the election to claim that the majority of the British people agree with them, when the actual results show that the country is very divided (which we all knew already).
