Yeah, I've no idea why Cameron squandered so much political capital on backing Turkey's membership, it definitely pushed up the leave vote, probably not by enough to make the difference but it certainly didn't help and even though vote leave probably knew it was never happenning they were only too happy to use it on their leaflets
