As I write this, it has been 591 days since the EU referendum. There is a website, a reverse countdown, that tells me for certain that it’s been 591 days, 11 hours, 25 minutes and 32, 33, 34… seconds. It ticks over; there’s a sort of comfort in knowing absolutely that today’s number is more than yesterday’s, that tomorrow’s will be more still.
