    What evidence is there that Cornwall voters have changed their minds? Some unreliable poll, I suppose? Only votes count.

    143 days to go.

    What was NOT clear to the people of Cornwall at the referendum were the dire potential consequences to the local economy of a hard Brexit with no customs union.

    Now that it is clear that such a circumstance due to there being no infrastructure at Plymouth Ferryport, (and no room for the necessary infrastructure,) that the export of the 95%-98% of the live shellfish caught locally and exported via Plymouth currently will just shut down. (50000 truckloads a year.)
    That is just one aspect.

    Why?

    If it contained evidence that Cornwall voted 101% to remain you would proclaim it to be God's own truth.

    And if there was a suggestion that the tiddi oggie fanciers wanted Brexit you would roll round the floor squealing that it was all Tory lies.

    I watched the programme and it was quite subtle but once again it was slanted to remain. The whole point at present is that those who still want to remain are working overtime to get the vote side stepped by fair means or foul. Those who really want out are watching from the sidelines almost silently. Either that or they are getting so little coverage that they are simply not heard.

    I had naively hoped that for once the politicians and 'establishment' would play a straight bat and that recent voting would put pressure on them. Sadly not apparently.

    Without him the programme would have lost all credibility as a balanced view. As it was it was a waste of intelligent time.

    I can't see the bias you did. I was also interested in a poll of 20000 people.

    Whose idea was it to graphic the remainers as an increasingly yellow streak? That was about the only thing I think the programme got right.
