Peston was having a go at the BBC's approach to Brexit the other day too:
"The problem with the BBC, during the campaign, it put people on with diametrically opposed views and didn’t give their viewers and listeners any help in assessing which one was the loony and which one was the genius,” he said.

“I do think that they went through a period of just not being confident enough. Impartial journalism is not giving equal airtime to two people one of whom says the world is flat and the other one says the world is round. That is not balanced, impartial journalism.”

He said impartial journalism was about “weighing the evidence and saying on the balance of probabilities … this is the truth. It is the role of a journalist to say, ‘we’ve got these two contradictory arguments, I’m now going to advise all of you which is likely to be closer to the truth.’”

Majority of Tory voters in England would be happy to see UK break up as price of Brexit, survey suggests

According to research by the Centre on Constitutional Change, which is based at Edinburgh University, Brexit is “dislodging long-held red lines about the [UK] union”. It says a majority of Conservative voters in England would prefer to press ahead with Brexit even if it led to the UK breaking up.

Here is an extract from the news release it has sent out.

Clear majorities of English Conservatives would support Scottish independence or the collapse of the NI peace process as the price of Brexit

87% of (overwhelmingly unionist) leave voters in Northern Ireland see the collapse of the peace process as an acceptable price for Brexit ...

Nearly half (49%) of English Conservative voters do not think Scottish MPs should sit in the UK cabinet and, in worse news for David Mundell [the Scottish secretary] as the SNP gathers in Glasgow, 24% of Scottish Conservative voters agree with them

And here are some of the key poll findings.

Image
These figures suggest that 77% of Conservative voters in England think Brexit would be worth it even if it led to Scottish independence, and 73% of them think Brexit would be worth it even if it led to the unravelling of the Northern Ireland peace process. Labour and Lib Dem voters are much less likely to say that, meaning that the Conservative and Unionist party is now arguable far less unionist than its rivals.

I mean, have you ever met a Unionist? The DUP voted against the Good Friday Agreement. This isn't surprising in the slightest.

They are not wrong either, if Northern Ireland gets it, then why shouldn't Scotland? They voted Remain as well.

The Welsh can strawberry float off though, they voted to Leave just like England did. :lol:

There is no way on earth the government can allow different parts of the UK to have a different trading relationship with the EU. If they plough on regardless with this then that's the end of the United Kingdom.

They also claim you can have an entire language using only the letter “L”.

Unionists are pricks, there's a reason Northern Ireland stands alone in being a political back water from the mid 80's.

Wales to me seem rather pointless, they might as well just call themselves English. The only Welshman of any note was St Patrick and even he couldn't stand it over there.
