'Out' campaigners paint a beguiling picture of how life would be for Britain outside the EU. ‘Unshackled from the EU corpse’, the UK would be free once more to venture round the globe, in a new Elizabethan age of national pride and prosperity. Alas, this is fantasy. Here are some of the hard realities the Europhobes prefer to gloss over.

1. No more United Kingdom.
2. No amicable divorce.
3. No special deal on trade.
4. No El Dorado elsewhere
5. No Commonwealth alternative.
6. No more ‘special relationship’.
7. No protection from the refugee crisis.
8. No real sovereignty.
