Brexit has continued to build momentum in the EU referendum race with successive polls putting ‘Leave’ ahead. So with nine days to go, is there anything ‘Remain’ can do to fight back? On this special daily edition of our Spectator Coffee House shots podcast, Fraser Nelson joins Isabel Hardman and James Forsyth to discuss today’s events as the countdown to June 23rd gets ever closer. James Forsyth says the polls in recent days ‘are triggering levels of panic that are even greater than the levels of panic in the final days of the Scottish referendum’. And Fraser Nelson says it’s difficult to see what ‘Remain’ can do to regain the upper hand. He tells Isabel on the podcast:

‘I can’t see what ammunition can come from the ‘remain’ campaign given how much they’ve discharged. Once you’ve spoken about World War Three, it’s difficult to up the stakes further. If anything, the ferocity and blood-curdling quality of their attack lines has started to count against them. So I am struggling to see what cards they can play between now and the 23rd.’
