How bored we must all be by the not very clear (not at all?) consequences of Brexit. Will that word, should that word survive and, in due course, take its wrongful place in the Oxford English Dictionary?

Now the cry  is getting louder for a second referendum. No but yes, rather than yes but no. Yes but no would be the result of a vote now: if the first referendum result were to be overturned, those who wanted to leave and still want to leave would rightly demand a third vote.

No but yes would be the logic of a second referendum with all the key pros and cons of the proposed settlement put out before us. Why not? That’s fair.
