  1. I’m really not sure which is which in your analogy! I have to say I am unaware of British plans for getting on without the EU, whereas there is a growing presumption in the EU that they are planning for a future without the UK.

    I really don’t understand your assertion that “everything they are saying just reinforces the position that they fundamentally don’t understand the sources of British euroscepticism, and hence are not just unwilling but are probably incapable of saying anything to persuade us to stay.” I will concede that I don’t myself fully understand the sources of British euroscepticism, which seems to me to be partly based on misunderstandings, partly on outright lies, and only very marginally based on a genuine objective and strategic assessment of where Britain’s place in the world is going to be. But I think the statements of people outside the UK, such as those interviewed by the BBC, are probably the least important factor here. Which is as it should be.
