Brexit and theory of counterfactual thinking. Despite its name, this isn’t just thinking the opposite of what we factually know—though that has probably played some part in the whole disaster. It is instead the analysis of how we think and feel about scenarios which could have happened. Broadly spea...

Re: Northern Ireland politics.

Recent quote from Gavin Esler (via Twitter.) " Boris Johnson has achieved the remarkable feat of uniting unionist and nationalist opinion that he is a charlatan who can never be trusted."
