There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

I am trying to think of something original and moderately intelligent to say on this. Well yes, this proto-Spring I do seem to be more aware of the insidious gradualness by which dark mornings become less dark and there is less excuse for a non-active pensioner to stay in bed. I seem to have missed this in my more active days, when I was ruled by the clock to get up at a certain time no matter how dark it was, so perhaps Equinox shows the important truth of the Sorites phenomenon - that we humans tend not to notice gradual changes at the time they happen
