As the UK moves into the end game of the great debate on remaining in the European Union, it is increasingly clouded which way the referendum will lurch.
The last general election left polling in chaos when a predicted close win for the Conservatives became a landslide that left UK Labour with one seat in Scotland and almost wiped out the old Liberal Party now on life support.
What are the polls saying about Brexit, well take your pick.
Where do the parties stand on Brexit, again take a wild guess.
David Cameron has his future on the line as his support for remain is in stark contrast to the 'leave' led by Boris Johnson who many claim as the next Conservative leader.
Yesterday I caught the end of a Beeb interview with Michael Hesletine whose wholesale support for the Cameron bloc was palpable.
The same Michael Heseltine whose opposition to what more and more see as Margaret Thatcher's very necessary restructuring of the UK economy that had seen the once basket case economy of Wilson and Callaghan emerge in a strength that sustained Major, Blair and now Cameron. Now The Lord Heseltine who was wet enough to remain under water and still talk revealed what more and more are seeing as blind panic from Number Ten as polling indicates trends to UK departing from what has become a seriously dysfunctional Mainland Europe. Heseltine was also the trigger for the political demise of Thatcher but after seeing her off lost out to John Major.
The latest challenge in the form of a massive and potentially revolt threatening Islamic invasion that has Merkell, Hollande, in fact most leaders of old Europe countries with increasingly diluted national structures in full retreat. Gra
When formed with West Germany, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxemburg and Italy only Italy was not regarded as a strong economy due in the main to its revolving door political system. With the add-ons including Portugal, Spain and Greece that with Italy became derisively known as the PIGS things started to go south in many ways.
In the beginning The Six were to be a bulwark to oppose the threat of Communism where The Soviet union had created its own commercially integrated Warsaw Pact except that politically the countries behind Churchill's aptly described "Iron Curtain", were entirely subservient to the Soviets. The Six on the other hand were mainly only a trading bloc of independent and successful nations
Then the UK joined along with Denmark and Ireland and full economic integration along with a devolution of national political abilities grew and paved the way for the nightmarish bureaucratic monster that resides in Brussels today, A very special chaos that has abdicated much of what made Europe once great, now a mere shadow.
In the mid nineteenth century Napoleon almost achieved a European union single handed with his military conquest of some key states and amalgamation of almost all others under threat. That major success unravelled when "General Winter" sided with Prussia and Great Britain to enable The Tsar to turn The Little general back from the gates of Moscow. Nearly a century later an Austrian corporal almost achieved what Napoleon had failed to do but again Russia prevailed and buried the thousand year Reich this time in the streets of Volgograd that had become Stalingrad to the glory of the Soviet leader "Uncle Joe" Stalin.
Had the enlarged European Economic Union been content with sovereign nations enjoying independence, free trade and a shared monetary system, the confusion that threatens in 2016 might never have happened, however left leaning socialist thinking that works from the infallibility of we know best, the monolith created is now seriously threatened.
Whatever the UK decides in a few days time, France and Italy are also seeing a groundswell of popular resentment that existed before the Islamic invasion but has been brought into focus by the hoards of mainly young men from the Middle East and North Africa seeking the comforts of the socialist utopia, are also undergoing beginnings of devolution.
The UK is lucky it has the Channel as a Moat but it aint half as good as ours with twelve hundred miles of the Tasman in contrast to England's Twelve miles of channel.
One of the great ironies of this whole debacle has the socialists and centrists largely supporting stay while the more conservative right wants out.
Meanwhile here on the reservation the TPP that has the support of conservatives and centrists is under serious threat from the socialists and communists with good ole Jane Kelsey in the fore front.
No wonder confusion is rampant.
