Surely the government and Labour in particular will be rueing a missed opportunity today.
The referendum should have been an achievement, a box ticked-something to win over wavering supporters.
A good progressive concrete thing they can point to.
Instead I sense they must be fuming at the cloud hanging over the result and its their own fault.
Their arrogance in trying to push the limits of the McKenna ruling and their inability to persaude people to take 5 minutes out of their saturday has turned this into a missed opprtunity at least if not an own goal....
Or will people forget about the governmemnt's blundering and just remember the result?
