mandate. But if we aren't getting the unicorns how can there still be a mandate?
"Britain... the place where it's ok to give up".
"We HAD a seat at the table and some rich American/Russian people tricked us we'd be better off out back by the dumpsters. Oh well. I guess we live here now."
"Nah. Sod this I can't be arsed. Someone may have stolen my research, hacked my PC, threatened my livelihood but I suppose fair's fair. I'll just give up".
Doesn't look good, does it?
