If Britain is in crisis by November's elections, that could be good news for the US. Voters might be more risk averse. But the immediate silver lining for anyone who does not want a Trump presidency is a blueprint for how not to persuade the discontented.

A historic question faces the British people this week, a choice about the survival of Britain itself, and the values that have made it great. To see this choice, we first have to wade through a thicket of arguments designed to obscure it.
