Dry as dust and dull as ditchwater

Pro-Remain article by Andrew Dismore for Progress:  http://www.progressonline.org.uk/2016/04/27/london-is-stronger-in/

Dry as dust and dull as ditchwater.

A succession of highly-selective stats that might be half-true or might be entirely spurious - it depends on your point of view.

But nothing that addresses the sense of bewilderment ordinary people (including ordinary Londoners) feel that their country has become an alien place where they are no longer safe or cared for.  That impersonal forces are making unaccountable decisions beyond any suggestion of democratic control.  That their country is being taken from them.
